Overview

Spoken language is a fundamental element of human relationships. The
ability to use words effectively can help you achieve great things in life. Oral
presentations are the cornerstone of human interaction on a large scale and
they also have a profound effect on intimate interactions as well.
Speaking in public can be a great source of anxiety for many people.
However, it doesn’t have to be. People have been practicing this art for
centuries and it has become an integral part of our interactions today.
Some approach public speaking like a type of internal thrill ride while others
are choked silent at the very thought of giving a speech. Overcoming the fear
of speaking in public is a subject of great interest to many. This activity is
rated among the most frightening events in a person’s life. Some have gone
as far as rating the fear of public speaking higher than the fear of death.
Many people are able to overcome their fear of speaking in front of an
audience in spite of its seemingly overwhelming nature. The process begins
with a strong understanding of how public speaking functions.
This text focuses on defining public speaking in a way that can help you get a
handle on your fears. It is also designed to help you create strategies that
will give you the means to create an effective oral presentation whether you
are directing a video conference or giving a toast during a special occasion.

    getting my point across better

    My co workers were getting promoted before me even though I was at work longer, I found out why because I was not speaking up at meetings, now I am talking better and I am sure that I will be promoted next.
