It is called “glossophobia”, and it is number one on the list of all phobias, even ahead of necrophobia (fear of death) or acrophobia (fear of heights). Its estimated three out of every four people have social anxiety around speaking in public. Great public speakers are made not born. There is no mystery to being an effective public speaker. It is based on preparation and some clear principles that can improve your ability to connect with the audience. Becoming effective at delivering your message is not only a crucial skill to develop in your professional development, it can also come in handy at family reunions, and other social gatherings.
