Ten SuccessfulTips Controlthe “Butterflies”
1. Know the room- become familiarwith the place of presentation
2. Know the audience- greet or chat with the audience before hand. It’s
easier to speak to friends than to strangers
3. Know your material-increased nervousness is due to un-
preparedness
4. Relaxation- relax entire body by stretching and breathing so as to
ease the tension
5. Visualize giving your speech-Visualize yourself giving your speech
from start to finish. By visualizing yourself successful,you will be
successful
6. People want you to succeed-the audience is there to see you
succeed not to fail
7. Don’t apologize-bymentioning your nervousness or apologizing,
you’ll only be calling the audience’s attention to mistakes
8. Concentrate on your message-notthe medium. Focus on the
message you are trying to convey and not on your anxieties
9. Turn nervousness into positive energy-nervousness increases
adrenaline, transform it into vitality and enthusiasm
10. Gain experience-experience builds confidence,which is key to
effective public speaking
