Simple Tips to Improve your Public Speaking Skills

  1. Presentation Dread

    Good advice Ana, and (if I can be permitted a wee pun) very well presented.

    I find that if people are asked to visualise something that really excites them, and they are then invited to measure how they feel and what the symptoms of that excitement are, and they then picture themselves making a presentation to the group or audience that they fear most, adn are again invited to measure up their physical sensations they can be quickly shown that excitement and fear are very close neighbours indeed. With some of my clients this has allowed them to reframe their view of public speaking.

    Thanks for your comments. I do love your "wee pun"!

    You make a great point. Excitement and fear can be closely related. It’s like a love hate relationship.

    Visualisation exercises are definitely empowering.


  3. Presentations

    Great tips Ana. Also, I can add that breathing in through your nose and out (more slowly) through your mouth can calm and centre me before presenting in moments. Focus on the breathing and nothing else while doing it.


  4. Thanks


    Thanks for your comments and advice. Breathing slowly is definitely a good way to calm the nerves. Focusing entirely on something else other than the upcoming presentation is a great way to recentre and gain confidence.
