I do not have a fear of public speaking, but I think it is a quite natural fear. When I was in 6th grade, our history teacher made us stand and give an oral report every Wednesday. I think that helped. However, I think I really came by my comfort with it naturally, so I'm not sure. Sometimes I like to be the center of attention by speaking publicly, but I also mostly like to just lie low and be behind the scenes. I think I had a past life or more as an actor.

No, I am very good speaker and I have presented so many demonstrations to the corporate clients. I have a skill to get to know the tastes of the listeners and then bound them with some specific reference quotes which are of their taste. The basic thing is that if you speak good about the subject and also that of interest to the listener then you can be a good speaker. The content and the presentation are both equally responsible in making you a good speaker.

During college days, I was bit nervous whenever I was asked to address the gathering. It is the practice that makes the man perfect. I mustered the courage and took every opportunity to address the gathering at college, at clubs and there is absolutely no fear. It is very important that you should have knowledge about the subject before one embarks on speaking.

yes. i am good in writing down my thoughts (i think) compared to speaking it out. i tremble when speaking in public. i try to look for words to say. but i can't manage to get my opinions together. i grasp for words, but i find it hard to do. i hate being scared to say what i want to say. i hope to overcome it, too.

It takes a lot of self-confidence to speak in front of a group of people. I think one can overcome the fear of public speaking by practice and knowing what it is you are talking about.
