Public Speaking - Summary (Part 3/3)

Today is the final day in the mini-series and I want to talk about the whole notion of delivering a speech and the anxiety that comes with it. As I have said before, it's not an easy thing for most people to deliver a speech to both a small or large crowd, but I think it's the fear and the way we handle our anxiety that help us deliver a successful speech. As you know by reading part 2, I had to deliver a speech to a group just the other day and while I was quite nervous, once I got up on stage and actually began talking - I realized that I was in total control, the anxiety and stress and fear that was building up each second that was closer to my going up on stage was no longer bugging me.

Looking back, I actually think the hardest part was walking up onto the stage, the rest of it just sort of fell into place. You can't completely erase your fears from the equation when giving a speech, there is always some form of stress or fear going on inside but it's how you manage it and being able to turn your fear into your ally is a definite advantage in giving a successful delivery.

I just wanted to thank you for reading all three parts of the series and feel free to leave any comments.

Hi Chris, it's a great Public Speaking series you have put up here. I believe you'll get more viewers if you move to a self-hosted Wordpress blog because in my opinion, blogspot hosted blogs has lower perceived value.

Hi Charles,

Thanks :) I am currently looking into getting my own domain name for the blog. Thanks for the advice ^_^

Be great to hear about your new blog Chris. Perhaps you could expand on this idea of mini-courses and even compile them into some kind of structured course cntaining even more helpful info?

Good work!
