Public Speaking Panic

Visualize yourself giving your speech

(HealthDayNews) -- The prospect of public speaking can render people speechless. Toastmasters International offers these tips to help you control your nervousness:

  • Know the room. Arrive early to familiarize yourself with the place in which you'll speak.
  • Know the audience. Greet some people when they arrive; it's easier to speak to a group of friends than a room full of strangers.
  • Know your material.
  • Visualize yourself giving your speech.
  • Realize that people want you to succeed. Audiences want you to be interesting, stimulating and informative.
  • Don't apologize for your nervousness. You may be calling attention to something the audience hadn't noticed.
  • Concentrate on the message, not the medium.
  • Turn nervousness into positive energy.
