Don't focus on being calm - Deepstash

Don't focus on being calm

We feel compelled to memorise because public speaking makes us nervous, making us worse at remembering a memorised script.

Research shows that being excited can improve performance and confidence.

  • Try to flip your inner anxiety dialogue to excitement, such as getting to share something of value with your audience.
  • Visualise yourself being excited about giving your presentation. A day or two before speaking, close your eyes and imagine your most engaged, excited self and how you confidently deliver your presentation.
