This afternoon, I'm going to facilitate a Customer Service training for the company at which I'm consulting. So this morning, I'm checking off my list of audio clips, video clips, prizes, jump drives, PowerPoints and everything else I'll need.
I just caught myself wondering if I'd be nervous. Because this is a new company and a business far from what I'm used to training to, will I get last minute jitters?
Public speaking rarely spooks my nerves. I'll speak my mind anywhere, anytime. Give me a platform, I'll stand on it. Speech giving is a snap (although much easier than than training with visual and audio aids and orchestrating exercises). And I can deliver an excellent eulogy. (Morbid, but true.)
But for some people, talking in front of a group is as intimidating as getting up to bat at a baseball game would be for me.
What about you? How do you feel about public speaking?
