Is being a public speaker freaking you out? You’re not the only one!

Having to go in front of an audience to deliver a speech is very stressful. Not only do you have countless pairs of eyes staring at you, but you also have to make sure you’re delivering seamlessly, looking professional plus everything else.

Stressing out before a speech or presentation will probably harm the quality of your performance. Public speaking is nothing to be worried about and, when performed correctly, can result in a positive outcome for you or your business (or both!).

Have a look at this infographic from LondonSpeakerBureau.com – don’t miss out on the expert tips at the bottom!


  • Relevant speech is where what you want to say and what you’re interested in overlap.

  • Make sure your opening line will interest your audience.
  • Use metaphors, adjectives, historical comparisons etc.
  • Don’t over practice!
