You may be apprehensive about speaking in public – nerves, making a fool of yourself, being criticised, or forgetting what you intend to say. Remember that we have provided a number of tools for controlling nervousness. Use them.
Why Assessment and Presentations are Feared
Good speakers are not born – it is all about some basic rules and practise. Speakers suffer from nerves because they worry about making fools of themselves or being ineffective. In particular:
- Drying up or forgetting words;
- Being challenged by a more knowledgeable person or not being able to answer a question;
- Looking nervous e.g. shaking hands, sweating, trembling voice;
- Not being perfect e.g. fluffing pronunciation/dropping a OHP transparency
Good speakers do not allow fear of failure to prevent them giving a good performance. They have learned to use their nervous energy positively. They suffer from butterflies but have learned to control them. They don’t kill the butterflies – they train them to fly in formation.
