Public speaking is an important skill that marketers, salespeople, and other professionals need to master.
Your communication skills will help you in your career advancement and the growth of your business.
Public speaking is not just about delivering a speech; it is also about connecting with your audience.
Glossophobia refers to the strong fear of public speaking. It is a condition that triggers stress when standing in front of an audience to deliver a presentation or speech. A large percentage of the population suffers from anxiety and fear when speaking in public.
So, what exactly triggers this fear?
Lack of Experience or Knowledge of the Audience
The fear and anxiety may be triggered when you are not prepared, or you do not know your topic or your audience.
Let’s say you have been chosen to speak at work, and given the floor to make a twenty-minute presentation on marketing.
At the talk, your coworkers and the boss who is watching you from the front row are present. You start fine, but two minutes in, you realize you are not able to speak even five minutes, let alone twenty.
You cannot stop to take a quick five-minute break to regroup.
You cannot radically change the subject.
You cannot start a new speech to divert attention.
You cannot, without risking negative consequences, do anything reasonable to deal with the problem.
It may seem difficult at first. But when you are confident and relaxed, you will find public speaking to be one of the greatest fields to be in. You will have the opportunity to travel to amazing places and meet very talented and interesting people.
Before working on letting go of your fears, you will need to write your speech and prepare yourself for your talk. You will also need to work on yourself, your stage presence, and the delivery of your talk. You will want to have a true desire to connect and to understand your audience.
All of these will help you in boosting your spirit and in giving you the courage to feel at ease on stage. You will be able to grow as a speaker and will enjoy being in front of a live audience. You will have the tools necessary to eliminate your fears.

BECOME A BETTER SPEAKER A& OVERCOME YOUR FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING!
Have You experienced Stage Fright?
Do you want to become a better speaker?
For anyone reading this book, as much as public speaking may challenge you, you likely don’t have much of a problem with normal speaking in interactions at work, school, and in your social life. You may not be a perfect conversationalist, but you don’t break into a cold sweat just thinking about talking with coworkers, other students, or friends at a café.
Furthermore, you have probably encountered fear and dealt with it successfully many times. You are likely to have had a lot of practice conquering fear. Fear, in the guise of worry and concern, happens frequently as we go through life. We encounter new people in new situations that challenge us regularly. But when fear, concern, or worry confront us, we handle it. It may not always be easy, but we get past the fear because we need to do what we need to do to provide for our families, reach our educational goals, and make an impact on our communities. The fear may be strong at first, but it does not hold us back. We can see through the fear to what is important to us.
But, for many, public speaking is different. Our speaking skills, which are reasonably present in everyday life, deteriorate when faced with a microphone and a crowd, and our hard-won ability to deal with fear-inducing situations evaporates in front of an audience. Our speaking abilities shrink, and fear grows from manageable to overwhelming.
This painful combination of events makes us either avoid public speaking completely or creates a miserable experience when we do speak.
