How+to+deal+with+Nerves.pdf

  1. 1. HOW TO DEAL WITH NERVES Remember- everyone gets nervous before speaking in public. It’s how you deal with the nerves that counts. Warm up earlier in the day somewhere away from the office/venue. • Physically relax, shake the body out, loosen the shoulders. • Breathe. • Do something to energise your system and utilise the nervous energy (go for a run, a long walk etc.). Get into the space you are going to present in beforehand. • Walk around it. • Familiarise yourself with it. • Try speaking out loud in it. • Sit in the audience’s seats. • Check the technology you will need. Immediately before stepping up to speak: • Sit away from the back of your chair with upright spine. • Feel the string from the top of your head. • Plant your feet flat on the floor. • Quietly breathe out slowly a few times letting the air come back in naturally between each out breath. When you step on the stage: • Stop. • Breathe. • Focus on the audience. READING LIST • Presence by Amy Cuddy • Presence: How to Use Positive Energy for Success in Every Situation by Patsy Rodenberg.
