How to master the Art of Speaking in Public?

We all have been Speaking in Public from time to time, it does not matter whether we have to speak in a team meeting or in front of an audience.
So how can one overcome his/her fear of speaking in public?

By (1) speaking regularly and (2) scaffolding

You don’t start with a 1 hour unscripted speech to a hostile audience of 5,000 people. Instead, you start with a 2 minute, scripted speech to friends. Then you build from there, making a 4 minute speech to 10 people, then a 5 minute speech to 15, and eventually you have scaffolded to a 10 minute speech to 100 people.

Prepare a small speech. Memorize it. Then go to random people on the street and ask for their feedback. Tell them it's only a minute or so.

When you force yourself to practice, you'll find out that it's not so bad. That's how I started out and just like doing anything in succession, it gets easier.
