Public Speaking for Beginners

Key Techniques for Speaking to an Audience

by Ayn Bernos

Overcome your fear of public speaking, and learn how to communicate effectively and confidently with even a large audience

According to studies listed by national centers for mental health in the US, glossophobia (fear or anxiety related to public speaking) may affect anywhere between 40% to 70% of the population.

So if speaking in front of a group of people, even a small one, makes you nervous, don’t worry—it’s perfectly normal.

But having a fear doesn’t mean nurturing it. Former beauty queen and current author, content creator, and entrepreneur Ayn Bernos is here to help you overcome that anxiety and learn to speak with confidence, no matter the size of your audience.

Does the thought of getting up in front of a crowd and having to tell them about literally anything terrify you down to the bone?

Do you often stutter through explanations during meetings or presentations at work? Or do you clam up even when you have something to contribute?

Does your brain seem to blank out or go into overdrive the moment an audience’s attention is on you, causing you to be struck dumb or become a motormouth hoping to get the whole thing over with?

Are you a teacher, trainer, or educator used to addressing classes but worried you’re not making the right impact on your students?

Did you answer yes to any of the questions above? If so, let this course guide you toward overcoming those fears and anxieties and learning to communicate clearly and effectively to any audience.

Need a few quick tips on addressing an audience? Here are four basic tricks to getting rid of those public speaking jitters:

Have them at hello.

You don’t want to waste anyone’s time, but don’t underestimate the power of a simple, friendly greeting.

Practice makes perfect.

Got a speech or presentation prepared? Read it aloud in front of a mirror if you can. Do it multiple times. Familiarity is your friend.

Don’t forget to breathe.

Avoid rushing, no matter how much you want the moment to end. Take the time to make your points, which are best punctuated by pauses in the right moments. So take a breath and let the oxygen clear your mind as your audience absorbs what you tell them.

Just do it.

You’ll hit a point where worrying will do you more harm than good. You may find that the best thing to do is stand up, step out, and say what you have to say.
