  • I can up in front of a classroom of kids, teens (or even adults whenever I teach my CPR classes). But for anything else out of my element- forget it! My husb used to play in a band & he still DJ's parties & weddings. I dont know he does it.

  • I am better in front of crowd of people I recognize than complete strangers. It just takes practice. I have pictured the audience naked to try to project my jitters on them on occasion. I am a nurse and was once asked to speak in front of a group of neurologists and I did that....but as I walked up onto the stage, one of my shoes fell off. I just kicked off the other one and kept on going. Once I was standing at the podium I was fine, I figured I couldn't do worse than that.

  • Giving speeches on a topic i am well versed in makes it much easier.

  • I was in speech & debate and drama in high school and loved it. The judges might make me a little nervous, but the audience never did.

  • The largest crowd I've spoken in front of, outside of my classroom, is about 200. I was a little nervous at first. It didn't last long though.

  • I hated getting up in front of a crowd to give a speech, hated it in school and still hate it

  • I used to hate it, but then after doing it for awhile, the fright went away. I think it was because I was talking about something I was passionate about-food and certification for chefs. I was trying to get more women involved.
