Q. I’m terrified at the thought of standing up and speaking in front of others. What can you suggest to help?

A. Firstly, remember that most people have felt the same. Our fear comes from doing something that is not normal for us and so the solution lies in normalising it. Most of us do not normally speak while we are standing and our listeners are seated. So, one simple thing to practise is just that. Get your friends/family/colleagues to sit around while you stand up and speak to them. It’s amazing how quickly you’ll get used to it.
Q. I’ve been asked to do a presentation and I’ve no idea where to start. A week’s passed and I’m no further forward!

A. Staring at that blank screen or piece of paper gets you nowhere. Use this initial worksheet to start things off. You’ll see it asks you to jot down your thoughts about the key elements before starting your presentation. Once you know what your purpose is and you have established your audience, you’ll be able to start working on your content.
