Public Speaking Tips: 4 Ways to Avoid Presentation Disasters

4 Ways to Avoid Presentation Disasters

Fear of public speaking

“I once heard Jerry Seinfeld joke that, because the fear of public speaking outranks even that of death, the average person attending a funeral would rather be “the guy in the casket than doing the eulogy.” Put to you this way, you’d probably want to get over your fear of public speaking (if you have one) in a hurry. This is particularly true in the workplace where public speaking is frequently a part of office life. For some people, the thought of leading meetings or making formal presentations can be terrifying.

How I Overcame My Fear of Public Speaking?

How To Overcame Your Fear of Public Speaking?

Fear
Communication is the most important skill for personal and professional success. In this talk, Danish Dhamani discusses how overcoming your fear of public speaking is key to leading a fulfilling life and unlocking your true potential. Danish’s vision is to empower everyone around the world to overcome their fear of public speaking and to become a better communicator. As a first-generation immigrant, for whom English is a second language, the fear of public speaking haunted Danish throughout his early life. By constant practising and coaching, he soon realized that people are not born public speakers; instead public speaking is a learnable skill. This is what inspired Danish to create Orai, a mobile app that uses artificial intelligence to improve your speaking ability. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.”
