A great share! I jut did my first workshop for small business owners yesterday. My first ever public speaking engagement. Not a huge showing, but it was something I needed to conquer. I plan to start running workshops a few times/month and grow my audience.

It wasn't as bad s I thought :)

Hi Teepu,

You are most welcome!! It's all in the mindset, practice and knowing that you can have a positive thought JUST as easily as a negative thought!

And of course, Martin's (Lyceum) suggestion below is a great idea!

Teepu: I recommend you to check out an organization called Toastmasters International. Great public speaking training.

Most welcome Goran,

And thank you too for sharing with your own community. An audience wouldn't be there if they did not want to learn (or at least find out how much or little they know already)

Whatever way we look at it, they want value, and that is always positive :)

Once a want to change becomes greater than the need to stay the same, change happens. And change is generally perceived by humans as negative, whereas it can also be positive.

And just sometimes, it means simply putting yourself in that position to realise it's not so bad, afterall. And the sense of achievement and euphoria so outweighs the initial fear.

Best wishes Sian, perhaps a local toastmasters may be an opportunity to get over that initial hurdle!
