Tips for the Anxious Public Speaker

It seems rare to talk with someone who will declare that they love public speaking (strangely, I am one of those people). Forbes.com published an article (read it HERE) that explains that some anxiety while speaking can actually be a good thing (I agree). The article offers some tips to ease anxiety.

I would also add:

  1. Don’t tell your audience how anxious you are. They want you to succeed and do well.
  2. It’s perfectly OK to fake some confidence (provided that you have prepared). Don’t let them “smell your fear”– you will be GREAT!
