How easy is it for the audience to detect our nerves? Does the audience really care? And why do we care so much about looking nervous?
Iask my clients to complete a pre-course questionnaire before they start one of courses and most of them say that they are worried about looking nervous in front of an audience. Many of them are also worried about sounding nervous – having a ‘shaky voice’ is a very common concern.
I strongly believe that anyone can manage their nerves and become a better public speaker with the right support.
