I came across this article with great public speaking advice – Why Introverts Can Be the Best Public Speakers:
“It turns out that a public speaker’s most important asset isn’t their theatricality, their story, or how extroverted and boisterous they are.
“It’s their capacity to help their audience to believe that change is possible.”
Not that I’m an expert or anything, but I believe better public speaking comes down to thinking about the audience and what they need. That’s hard to do if I’m nervously thinking about myself, what I need to get from this presentation, or even how I’m doing right now delivering this talk.
How do I stop worrying about myself and how I’m doing? Take a deep breath, ahhhh, and think about the audience!
