Frequently Asked Questions

Why does public speaking often cause so much anxiety?

As humans, we are programmed to be a part of a group but not necessarily to stand in front of one. When we find ourselves alone facing others, we can experience the “fight or flight” syndrome. Most of us instinctively want to run away, to disappear. It’s hard work to overcome this internal struggle, stand up, speak and do a great job.

Why are some speakers so much better than others?

It boils down to two elements. The first is they have learned how to put together the right message for the audience, no matter its size or purpose. The second is their commitment to rehearse aloud as long as it takes to project confidence, know-how and passion. No good speakers just reads their message silently over a few times!

What’s the most important word a speaker/leader can use when presenting?

“You.” Remember, even though you may be the expert, the presentation is NOT about you. Successful speakers and leaders make their remarks “you-oriented” and not so much “I” or “We” in their focus.

What can I do to calm my nerves before a presentation or speech?

The day before, give yourself time to recharge your batteries. Go for a run, workout, get a massage, listen to your favorite music, socialize with friends – but not too late! Try to get a good night’s sleep. Consider rubbing lavender, an essential oil, on your wrists. Put all your notes, visuals, props, and handouts in order, packed and ready to go. The day of your message avoid too much caffeine as it will just make you jumpy. Try an herbal tea. Get their early to check out the room, microphone and seating arrangements. Bring an extra copy of your introduction and notes, just in case.

What clothes work best when you’re before a group?

Avoid large patterns, black, white, and bright red. Patterns can be distracting. Black can be intimidating and white and red can be hard to view for long periods of time. Dress a notch or two above the casual level of your audience so you look professional. Natural fibers tend to breathe better than synthetics, keeping you from getting sweaty from possible anxiety. Wear shoes that are comfortable and inconspicuous. Always bring a back-up outfit just in case you spill something!
