Overview : Learn how to give (maybe even enjoy) confident, clear, informative, and interesting presentations. Don't let fear of speaking in public worry you or even risk it holding hold back your career. Anyone can learn to give confident presentations and may even one day find speaking in public to be enjoyable.
Why should you attend: The word glossophobia means fear of speaking and it's one of the most common phobias. Public speaking ranks almost at high as fear of death for some. Considering the intense pressure and self-scrutiny many induce on themselves it's no wonder a presentation can become so anxiety producing. There's no reason that anxiety over a simple presentation has to become so intolerable though. Although it may feel as if wolves may be waiting to tear you apart, that's far from the reality. Embarrassment and fear of failure when speaking in front of others is one of the greatest fears most people encounter in their careers. But it doesn't have to be that way. There are easy and simple tips that can immediately up your presentation power.
