What are your go to tips to keeping calm when it comes to public speaking? I'm not very good when it comes to public speaking, I fluster a lot, my voice stutters and cuts out, it's a mess. How do you get over the fear of public speaking?

Thanks to my first job, i managed to train myself public speaking on the job. One thing that is cliche but still works like magic, is to imagine that your audience are dummies. That will eliminate the fear you may have of facing a huge crowd. Besides that, you just need to come up with your own hack for remaining composed and consistent in the flow of ideas.

Being a musician I would always have performances and things like that at a young age to be on stage and in front of people. I guess I got over 'stage fright' pretty young which I'm thankful for. Do I still get nervous? Sure! being nervous before going on stage or public speaking is a healthy thing. Just not being too nervous.

The first time you speak on a stage may be a feeling you may hold dear for your period. I bear in mind the primary time I used to be on a stage, I was a twelve year recent, the topic was democracy and that I knew solely a bit concerning it. However, I spoke up to three minutes simply by exploiting the contents that my seniors before I spoke. as the time glided by, I got a chance to talk ahead of a full area of nearly 2000 capacity. A noteworthy issue concerning public speech is that the vasoconstrictor rush that you simply feel every and each time you are taking the stage. I speak every and each time for feeling that and it would be the explanation behind many of us speaking publicly.

1. When you’re preparing, think about your audience.
When we start preparing for a presentation, the mistake we all make is starting with the topic. This immediately gets us inside the details — and makes it harder to break down the wall between us and others. Instead, start with the audience. Before diving into the information, ask yourself: Who will be in the room? Why are they there? What do they need? Be specific in your answers. Identify the audience’s needs, both spoken and unspoken, and craft a message that speaks directly to those needs.2. Right before you speak, refocus your brain.
You are the most nervous right before you speak. This is the moment where your brain is telling you, “Everyone is judging me. What if I fail?” And it is exactly at this moment that you can refocus your brain. Remind yourself that you are here to help your audience. Be firm with your brain. Tell yourself, “Brain, this presentation is not about me. It is about helping my audience.” Over time (usually between four and six presentations), your brain will begin to get it, and you will become less nervous.3. While you’re speaking, make eye contact.
One of the biggest mistakes we make is speaking to people as a group. We scan the room — trying to look everyone at once — and end up connecting with nobody.
In reality, each person in the room is listening to you as an individual. And so the best way to connect to your audience is by speaking to them as individuals. How? By making sustained eye contact with one person per thought. (Each thought is about one full clause.) By focusing at one person at a time, you make each person in the room feel like you are talking just to them.
