Believe it or not, most of those fears are self inflicted. What do I mean? The individuals listening to you don’t truly care how the information is disseminated, they just want at the information. It’s the speaker that puts themselves through the ringer weeks before the event. Here are some tips that may seem obvious, but once completed, will truly put your mind at ease, trust me.
Understand the subject! I don’t mean understand your subject, I mean inside and out, upside down, whatever question someone may throw at you, you understand the answer. You truly need to be prepared to accomplish this level. You need to know your speech almost by heart; you have to know the products you'll be discussing. Do your homework, you'll know you've reached public speaking Nirvana when you get that “feeling”, it will come with knowledge.
Greet as many of the attendees before your speech as possible. Familiarity promotes confidence. Besides, consider the benefit you provide the topic you're to speak on when you take the time to meet individuals before you go on. This technique likewise prevents you from pacing back and forth and worrying yourself to death till you go on. There's no point in cramming now, if you don’t know it, you won’t, and it will show.
Do not think everybody in the audience is naked, this in fact will harm your chances of a successful public speaking outing.
When you discover yourself with only a mouthful of uhs and ums, stop yourself, repeat the sentence as if to add significance, and replace the uhs and ums with silence to allow your points to hit home.
Animate your speech. Most individuals think that great communication is mouth-centric. Nothing may be farther from the truth! To be a potent communicator, you have to use your whole body. Gestures and body language add energy and enthusiasm to your speech.
These are tips may truly help you take your next step in public speaking. Do you realize that individuals pass up promotions because they will be required to speak publicly?

Either way, you truly may come to grips with your fear and perhaps you won’t enjoy it, but you’ll be able to get through it easier. I can’t emphasize enough that half of your battle will be just knowing what you're going to say, and anticipating what other people are going to ask. It may be simple!
