Getting past public speaking anxiety

by The 100 Companies

Experts estimate as much as 77% of the population has some level of anxiety regarding public speaking.

That’s me. I hate public speaking, or at least I hate the thought of it. I’ve written countless speeches over the course of my career for Association board members and executives, and I loved doing it.

Here are three tips that have helped me when it’s my turn to speak:

1. Practice – Practice until you know your speech inside and out.

2. Setting – Get all the details so you can envision how it will go.

3. Patience – Everyone stumbles here and there while speaking. Give yourself grace.
