I am wondering if taking a public speaking class will help to improve my communication skills? I have fear of speaking not only in front of a big group but even in a small group. Could be even in a small circle of friends . I recently had to do oral presentation in uni and I was shaking and couldn't speak clearly. I just want to be able to talk without being anxious and scared. I feel like life is passing me by because of not being able to communicate.
Please let me know if anything has worked for you or if you have any advice for me.
Hi, I would like to share with you my experience of public speaking. After reading it you'll get your answer.
Actually, I am working in UVA Digital company situated in Noida India. I am working on a their main project Mynahcare and it's been just a month I have started with this company. One week ago, the business head wanted all of us new comers to give a presentation on our respective field. Public speaking is just like a monster to me as well. Though, I have thorough knowledge of my field so I knew what I need to present in front of my senior as well as junior members. The BIG DAY came and I came out on third number out of 10 people who were about to give their presentation. When I started my presentation my voice was shaking with my legs and suddenly I fell down my pen because of this shaking thing. I quickly took my pen and apologized for the same. I resumed and something from inside told me "go ahead you can do it..people standing or sitting in front of you are laymen..they do not know anything about you and your field..they all are dumb".. After listening to inner inner instinct and somewhere it boosted from inside...My legs stopped shaking, my voice was Lauder and I was more confident than ever before...
Moral of the story is: Do not lose your confidence any how..Just think people out there are not smarter and intelligent than you. You are equally smart, intelligent and confident enough..
I hope my experience will guide you in a better way.. If you need any help you can also contact me..
