Quick tips to overcome stage fright when speaking in public

how to make successful team presentations

Here are my tips for anyone who suffers stage fright when speaking in public. Take a deep breath. Walk slowly up to the lectern. Put your papers down, if you have any. Pause. Look at the audience. Don’t say a word. Let yourself feel that energy coming from them. Settle your own energy field. Then begin to speak. Better to have a few seconds of silence than a painful start to your presentation that you, and your audience, will never forget.
