Public Speaking Anxiety

Respond to the following questions and, if it’s relevant, include your own personal experience:

  • Think about an instance (or several instances) when you were extremely anxious and nervous about having to make a public presentation. This presentation could be a formal speech, an oral report, introducing someone to a group, or even simply speaking up in a group.
  • What steps did you take to decrease your apprehension?
  • What worked? What did not work?
