How to be confident before public?

Postby billkt » Wed Sep 27, 2006 10:47 am

In my opinion,the most important thing to help u feel confident before public is knowing clearly what you are going to say

That's right. So we should prepare well what we are going to talk.

I always hated talking in front of an audience, I don't like being the center of attention. Maybe that's why everytime I start classes at a new place, I get pimples!

Familiarization is very important. The more you do it, the more you adapt to doing it.

When I was young I was extremely shy. After teaching, I began to feel more confident. Even then, I hated speaking in public.

On Tuesday, I'm going to present a workshop at a university seminar on Foreign Languages. I'm nervous, but I know my information, I'm well prepared and I know the type of audience.

I find that the worst part is the expectation. Once you begin, it's an adrenalin rush! So, remember this and it will help you deal with the pre-presentation phase.

I am a quiet and instroversive person. I don't like talking in front of crowd either. Maybe I lack in courage and confidence.

I never get nervous. Not since I learned to stuff a rolled up pair of socks in my underwear before speaking in public.

Oh. There are good advices. For me, practice is important. Practicing before the mirror and take any chance to talk in group ( that three to six people is enough). I agree that familiarization is good way to be more confident when speaking before the audience.

IT 'S VERY FUNNY TO GET PIMPLES HIHI.
HOWEVER, I THINK YOU RE ALL SENIBLE TO SAY WE LACK PRACTISING TO CONTROL OUR NERVOUSNESS AT THE TIME OF MAKING SPEECH ,iT TAKE LITTLE TIME FOR YOUR CONFIDENCE TO GROW UP!! 8)

I always pratice my speech or presentation before but when I speak in front of the classmates or audiences I feel dreaded. I forgot anything, even a word!

Everything needs practice, those who has taught classes in schools or colleges have enough courage to stand infront of people and communicate without any hesitation. however those who havent will certainly face lack of courage.
