Speaking in front of the public is the most common form of anxiety. It makes the speaker be conscious of what they say, what they look like and gestures that they enact. It tends to cause a panic attack on the speaker and later on causes shame of themselves.

Public speaking is one of the best ways to boost your brand. Through speaking about your business, you can engage more clients to be interested. But with the fear of public speaking, the chances of your career to succeed is at stake. People tend to overlook opportunities because they are afraid to speak out.

Most of the people have trouble with public speaking. SMH has stated that public speaking is one of the top three fears of humans along with dying and flying. People who are afraid tend to speak fast to the point that it interferes with their breathing. They do not intend but also make long unnecessary pauses.

So, to help you boost your confidence, Dna India revealed some tips to help you master the art of public speaking;

Start plain and simple. Know what you’re talking about.
