Is something I still very much fear. I'm told I'm pretty good at it, but I still can't get myself to actually like it.
It's not that I don't know what to say, or anything, I have my story straight and my opinion ready if the occasion calls for it. Still, I manage to mess up my sentences. What I normally do is laugh about it and tell the listeners that I'm going to say that sentence again in the right order.
I never know what to do with my hands. I use them for put emphasis on certain points but I can't move then about all the time, can I? One of the reasons, perhaps, why I prefer to sit at a table whilst speaking.
Any tips for me, anyone? If I ever want to voice my opinion and be heard, I'd say I need to get over this issue.
And I have a presentation on monday. Fingers crossed.
