Public speaking and the act of getting up in front of group to talk is a daunting experience for most and a little bit later on I'll provide you so statistics on that. Many facilitators or instructors who teach the art of public speaking will tell you that public speaking is all about attitude and confidence. I agree with both estimations however I go a step further to say that public speaking is really your "Sense of Self".
