  20. 20. HOW YOU CAN DO IT…
  21. 21. HOW YOU CAN DO IT… •Be in the room early. •Yawn to relax your throat. •Doodle. •Breathe deeply, evenly, and slowly for several minutes. •Don't drink caffeinated drinks. •Go somewhere private and warm up your voice, muscles, etc.
  22. 22. Punjabians
  23. 23. • Concentrate on how good you are. • Pretend you are just chatting with a group of friends. • Close your eyes and imagine the audience listening, laughing, and applauding • Remember happy moments from your past. • Think about your love for and desire to help the audience. Punjabians
  24. 24. • Even if you do not like the topic, develop an interest in it. • Be extremely well-prepared. • Anticipate hard and easy question. • Organize. • Memorize your opening statement. • Practice. Punjabians
  25. 25. • Be in the room at least an hour early, if possible, to triple check everything. • Concentrate on searching for current and immediate things that are happening at the event that you can mention during your speech (especially in the opening). • Get into conversation with people near you. • Look at your notes. • Take a quick walk. • Concentrate on the ideas. • Concentrate on your audience. • Hide speaking notes around the stage area so you know you have a backup if you happen to draw a blank. • Shake hands and smile with attendees before the program. • Double-check your A/V equipment • Say something to someone to make sure your voice is ready to go. • Go somewhere private and warm up your voice, muscles, etc. • Go to a mirror and check out how you look. • Breathe deeply, evenly, and slowly for several minutes. Punjabians
  26. 26. • If your legs are trembling lean on a lectern/table of shift your legs or move about. • Don't hold notes. • Use eye contact. • Look at the friendliest faces in the audience. • Do not comment on your nervousness. Punjabians
  27. 27. • If your presentation is being videotaped before a live audience, ignore the camera. Likewise, if you are being interviewed before a camera, the viewer expects to see you communicating with your ‘live’ audience or interviewer. • If you are interviewed by a television reporter, keep your comments short and to the point. • If you must face a hostile interview on- camera, avoid the appearance of surprise. The only preparation is to expect an opening question that is hostile, direct, admissions, or Punjabians explanations.
  28. 28. • To unlearn the unwanted physical reactions associated with stage fright, you must practice performance before an audience. • Mold your attitude around all your successes. Remember what success feels like, what it looks like. • Even when you perform in a less than stellar fashion, remember the parts you did that were outstanding. • Replace negative attitudes with positive ones. A positive attitude will lead you to seek any help you may need to improve. A negative attitude shackles your personal and professional life. • Decide beforehand that it will be a fun experience. Punjabians
  29. 29.  Try not to hold the microphone by hand in the first minute.  Don't hold notes. The audience can see them shake. Use three-by-five cards instead.  Use eye contact. It will make you feel less isolated.  Look at the friendliest faces in the audience.  Joke about your nervousness. What's the right wine to go with fingernails?
  30. 30.  Speak Up! Make sure to speak a little louder than normal conversation when you are giving your speech.  Slow Down! When you are giving your speech to your listeners, remember to slow your speech down a little bit and don't rush through the words. Make sure to enunciate and don't slur your words either.  Be Confident! You can do this! Believe in yourself!
  31. 31. Understanding presentational anxiety and applying some of these techniques and suggestions will help you overcome the more paralyzing forms of stage fright. They might become very useful when you give your next speech.
  32. 32.  Know the room  Know the audience  Know your material  Relaxation  Visualize giving your speech  Gain experience
  33. 33.  People want you to succeed  Don’t apologize  Concentrate on your message-not the medium.  Turn nervousness into positive energy
  34. 34. Practice takes you from this..
