If the fear of public speaking affects you so much that it affects your daily life and career progression, it may be a good idea to seek out professional help from a counsellor or psychologist.

Other than being familiar with your material and being fully prepared, here are other ways you can calm your nerves before and during your presentation:

1. Find out who the participants are

Understand their backgrounds and why they’re attending. This will better help you to tailor your presentation.

2. Visualise the possible scenarios in your mind

Imagine the small talk, progressing into the major topics and the difficult conversations that may take place.

3. Develop and rehearse your responses

This will help you feel confident to take on the various questions that are likely to be asked.

4. Ask for time

If something unexpected happens, don’t be afraid to ask for more time to evaluate.
