PUBLIC SPEAKINGLet’s not fool ourselves. Public speaking is a challenge to most, even after preparation and years of experience. Public speaking for many people represents one of their greatest fear, but learning to communicate effectively is a skill we all, to a greater or lesser extent, can learn and use a lot in life. Many people have a hard time speaking in public because they don’t know how to do it, because nobody taught them or have practiced enough to make these people feel safe in front of an audience. Some people increase their anxiety by talking to the audience because they perceive as the enemy. But nevertheless, the public can be seen as people who are interested in a particular subject, that they need the speaker, his experience, his knowledge to learn something specific.Communication is a human need that is part of everyday life. That is why it is important to know all the factors that intervene in it to achieve more positive, fruitful and lasting relationships. Among the forms of communication, public speaking is one of the situations that almost all of us will have to face at some point in our lives, so we must be prepared and behave as naturally as possible. The good news is that there are ways to neutralize the fear of speaking in public. 1. Know your topic content. You really should be familiar with the contents of your presentation. Investigate, read and study about your topic. Talk to friends and colleagues about the points that you are speaking about. 2. Practice, practice, practice. Practice is the key to dominating your presentation. Practice to friends, family and colleagues. If you can record yourself either video or audio, and use the same recording to review your issue. On the other hand, repeatedly practicing your presentation will help you master your subject no longer having problems with memorization. 3. Focus on your message. In public speaking, focus your attention away from your own anxieties and concentrate on your speech and your audience. Remember that you are speaking to a group because you have information that they need to hear, and you're there for them, not about you. Note that the audience wants you to succeed. They came to learn something and are very happy that you're in front and not them. 4. Arrive early. Being in the room or auditorium where your presentation will give 30 minutes before lets you know the place, allows for you to prepare the materials and equipment used. Also, and this is very important, arriving early will allow you to interact with the public as they arrive because it will be easier to talk with a group of friends than with strangers.
