Public Speaking and Presenting

“Speech is power, speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Jerry Seinfeld once joked that for most people, the fear of public speaking ranks higher than the fear of death: “This means to the average person, if you have to go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”

In 2013 The Times commissioned a poll of 2,000 people that showed a fear of public speaking to be a more pressing concern than death. Only the loss of a family member was deemed a more terrifying thought.

“There are only two types of speakers in the world. The nervous and the Liars.” Mark Twain
