Public speaking
Who am I?
Anna, 25 years young :)

student of two courses at Rzeszow University (English & Polish philology)

AIESECer since October '13

matcher in Enter Your Future project

I like:
Coldplay <3
hand-made stuff
superhero movies
hangin' around in medieval clothes from time to time

And I used to be afraid of
(or rather
scared to death by)
any public performance
is a fear of public speaking
or speech anxiety
But no worries, every 3 out of 4 people have it.
What is public speaking and why you are afraid of it?
Public speaking
is the process and act of speaking or giving a lecture to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to
inform, influence, or entertain a listening audience
. Public speaking is commonly understood as face-to-face speaking between individuals and an audience for the purpose of communication.

Why public speaking scares you?
There's something about standing up there,
with all eyes on you
that makes you break into a sweat. Psychologists suggest that public speaking phobia is often associated with the fear of rejection at a primal level.

The fear of being rejected is so strong because we are not only afraid of being ashamed, or judged; we are afraid of being excluded from the social group, abandoned and left to protect ourselves all on our own.
Why exactly are
afraid of it?
Think about of the reasons for a moment.

Write them down on the pieces of papers.
Now, let's step out of our
comfort zones for a moment...
Let's try to
find some solutions... :)
3 stages of public speaking
1. Preparation
1. What is the goal of my presentation?
2. Who is my audience?
3. Do I know the content well?
4. Do I have a draft?
Make sure that you know your content inside out so that you are comfortable giving your presentation with no visuals at all.
Prepare a draft with all the key points you want to get across and keep it with you as a guide.

Mastering your content affords you the luxury of calmness and clarity during presentations. Which means

2. Perfomance
1. First impression
2. Body language
3. Emotions
Our goals:
Be more open :)
Feel more confident!
Not to be afraid of public speaking again :)
Stepping our of the comfort zone and feel
freakin' good
about it
magic, pure magic!
Our rules:
we do everything what FACI says
we are not afraid of it, because we're among friends :)
, but we also have
we participate actively
when somebody speaks, we listen carefully
little "homework"
Now think about something that makes you
really happy
, a decision you've made, a thing you like, somebody you love, a really beautiful place you would like to come back to, etc.

Say it, and let's here your barbaric yawp of joy!
Now let's improvise :)
Let's build up our confidence!
A little bit of history now...
Your 45 seconds
4. What should I change next time?
3 stages of public speaking
1. Feedback.
2. Did I achieve the goal? Was the audience engaged?
3. Did something unexpected happen?
3. Evaluation
I want YOU to prepare the Moment of the Conference - a memory, a feeling, you would like to share with the rest of the people, during the evening plenary :)
Thank you
for your
