Relax

Certain relaxation techniques like deep breathing, or speaking slowly, calm us and get us out of our irrational fears.

Speaking slowly is also better than speaking at a fast rate, which can make you lose your breath, showing the audience that you may, in fact, be scared.

Be Natural Be Yourself

Be Natural Be Yourself

Trying to be someone else, or copying someone's style can show in your presentation.

Being yourself makes you speak from your heart, with your beliefs and experiences coming out. Speaking the truth, and being honest is freeing, and can give your presentations more power.

Practice

Practice

A great way to remove a large portion of fear is to practice hard, studying the topic well. You can research all questions that the audience may ask, and practice the speech in front of a mirror or in front of friends.

Practicing soothes our nerves, making us ready for the final audience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
