Ways to overcome anxiety before delivering presentation by Ellen Colton a) Know the room – become familiar with the place in which you will speak b) Know the audience – if possible meet and greet with members of the group as they arrive c) Know your material – nervousness increases when you are not familiar with your material - practice your speech and revise it until you can present it with ease d) Learn how to relax – do breathing and relaxation exercises e) Visualise yourself speaking – imagine yourself walking confidently - imagine yourself speaking, your voice loud, clear and assured f) Realise people want you to succeed – all audiences want speakers to be interesting, stimulating, informative and entertaining - they want you to succeed, not fail g) Don’t apologise for being nervous – don’t apologise for any problems as it’s a sign of weakness h) Concentrate on your message and speech – focus your attention away from your anxieties

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
