Conquering Your Fear of Public Speaking

How to Succeed in School, Work and Life

Vogel Prep Now Offering Public Speaking Course!

Most people are terrified by the thought of public speaking. Irrespective of whether you’re ranked at the top of your class, or knocked your college or grad school entrance exams out of the park, the thought of speaking to an audience is daunting to most people.  Even though you may fear speaking publicly or formally, there’s no getting around the fact that you’re going to have to do it.  That’s precisely why there’s no time like the present to get comfortable with it. 

Rest assured, you’re in good company if you’re scared to speak to groups or to figures of perceived authority, such as a job interviewer.  In fact, public speaking is one of the number one phobias.  In its most basic form, fear of public speaking is performance anxiety provoked in an individual by the requirement to perform in front of an audience, whether live or in front of a camera. 


Since there’s no getting around it, as we’re all going to be interviewed sometime, we might as well start learning to cope with this fear.  So, what’s the first step towards getting through your fear of public speaking?  Getting comfortable with public speaking with the assistance of Vogel Prep in Scottsdale.
