  4. 4. Stage fright! • We have to step out from a crowd and speak in front of all those people when presenting … … and the reaction is FEAR, ANXIETY, DISTRESS • Fluttering / pounding heart, tremor in hands and legs, facial nerve tics, dry mouth, tremble voice, diarrhea … I want to quit this place!!! • Turn the negative energy into positive Stage fright = type of energy
  5. 5. Stage fright? Sources of stage fright • Doubts whether the audience will appreciate my presentation • Fear of infamy / disclosure of imperfections and weaknesses How to manage it • Everyone suffers from stage fright • Getting ready / well prepared • “I perfectly know what I am going to talk about.” • “I’ll forget what to say…” • Make stage fright work for you • “I’ll lose the thread…” • Stage fright does not last forever • Depression • Love your audience in advance
