Public speaking is a key skill area. You can't be a leader if you cannot address people properly. You cannot sell if you cannot effectively get you message across to listeners. Yet many people still fail at public speaking.

Phobia or fear of the crowd of public speaking what's its called? Glossophobia? State freight?

Many people experience it. I remember a time I was to deliver a speech in front of a small group but being nervous, my legs were shivering inside the pants.

OMG! I thought to myself. What was that? The limbs shook all through.

We're they going to swallow me? No. Would they beat me up? No!

So, what's the stress? And what are the practical solutions to the phobia or fear of public speaking?

Let's talk.

These tips will help:

1. Start Little. If you're new to public speaking, start little. And with familiar faces. Don't attempt 2-hour speech at first. Try 2 minutes, 5 minutes and grow as your confidence grows.

2. Prepare, prepare, prepare.
The importance of this cannot be overemphasized. Practice makes perfect. If you prepare well, the rest would be easier. Except it's extemporaneous.

3. Don't Just Cram, Understand.
Try to understand what content you are delivering. This will not only help memory, this will make the contents part and parcel of you and delivery will be just natural.

4. Avoid Common Mistakes.
You know yourself. Avoid common pitfalls in public speaking. Also grammatical errors and pronouncing can put strain on you. Hone your skills.

5. Reduce Stress.
Rest well to ensure mental calmness before the presentation. This will help calm your nerves and reduce tension.

6. Scared Of Faces? Find a Friend to Focus On.
Maybe the audience are too unfamiliar? Plant in a friend. And focus on his face each time you look up. For starters this works charm.

7. Engage Your Listeners.
This practice works charm too. Don't just be a radio. Be interactive. Engage your audience. Ask simple questions. Say a statement and let them complete it. Try illustration. You would see your audience won't swallow you but rather appreciate you.

There is more.
