Public speaking is something that many people have a fear of, even though this fear can be easily overcome. I began speaking just three years ago. Every time I speak it gives me another opportunity to perfect my skills just a little more. Here is what I have learned after speaking more than two hundred times in front of groups of fifty to three hundred people.

Your audience wants you to succeed. They want to hear what you have to say and get the most out of it. It is your job to deliver good information and involve them in the process.

I used to get very nervous during the first five to ten minutes of my presentation, so I developed a technique for calming my nerves during this time. When I would first be introduced I would ask the audience two questions. I wanted them to be able to answer yes to at least one of these questions. Then I asked them to choose a partner and to ask each other another question. By then I would not be nervous any longer and the audience also felt more at ease.

Sometimes you will want to include a handout with your speech, but be sure to give it to them at the right time. I like to speak for at least fifteen minutes before I pass out any materials.

The worst thing that can happen is for people to start reading what you gave them and to stop listening to your presentation. They will not be able to grasp the full meaning of what you are sharing with them, and may ask questions at the end that you already answered earlier in your speech.

Just knowing that speaking can change the life of the person who is listening to you makes all of the difference in the world. How many times have you gone to hear someone speak and went away with a completely different perspective? Speakers have a kind of power when they speak that can affect people on a very deep level.

Never turn down an opportunity to speak. Some of my first speaking engagements were to small groups of business people. After a few times I realized how much they got from my presentation, so I was encouraged to speak more and more. Although I am far from being a polished speaker, I now know that there is nothing to fear from public speaking.
