Newsletter - Sept 2019 - Overcoming Fear of Presenting

Posted: Oct 24, 2019

It's been said that making a presentation is the most fearful experience for so many people that it's up there with facing death in the fear stakes!

While that may not be meant literally, it illustrates that fear could be the stumbling block behind a great presentation. How it’s handled will make the difference between a really successful, motivating and inspiring communication and something that falls flat. There are a number of ways to reduce the fear that could make a real mess of your message.

If you are continually worrying about the next thing that could go wrong, you’re killing yourself mentally every single time.

Instead, think through what you want to achieve, concentrate on the outcomes you want, rather than the speech itself, and that fear will dissipate into the distance as you confidently approach the presentation with ease and motivation.

Your motivations, your values and your beliefs? And, where these came from. Here’s the thing, if you don't have self-awareness, how on earth can you expect anyone else to be at their best when working with you?
