Why do many people shy away from public speaking?

When do people harbour butterflies in their stomach and feel most uncomfortable? People generally develop a common fear when they’re called upon to make a speech or presentation, or when they sense that they are to address an audience. This fear is often described as stage fright or audience fear. Some people describe it with a high-sounding word, glossophobia.

A major cause of glossophobia is a lack of confidence in one’s ability to express themselves freely before a mixed audience of people of various backgrounds. The anxiety of making all manners of imagined mistakes and the fear of not being able to get across to different minds and mindsets pose the greatest obstacle.

How can you get rid of glossophobia?

The first step to getting rid of this global speech pandemic is to polish your accent, by making it sound posh and listenable.
