Do you hear your heartbeat rising and feel your palms wetting and a strange knotting feeling inside your stomach whenever you address a handful of people? Whether ten or hundred, it is a much common thing that happens when there is a crowd to listen you. But overcoming this stage fear is an important step in your learning process. A confident and fluent speaker might have crossed this fear as well. Getting yourself used to crowds and their behaviour would definitely help you become a great public speaker.
Here are some easy ways that help students overcome stage fear:
- Always take a chance to read or recite in the stage whenever you get a chance to do so. This practice would help you make yourself comfortable on stage
- Be thoroughly prepared on the topic. The basic reason for fear is whether you will present your points clearly. When you get the subject inside out, nearly half of fear is reduced
- Always think positive, rehearse number of times and imagine your success now and then
- Drop your inhibitions and dare to do something out of your comfort zone
After all, remember everyone in the audience would also be fearful when asked to perform. Practice makes you perfect and cheerful speaker. The schools play a major role in training its students to be comfortable to speak publicly. Yuvabharathi Public School conducts a lot of activities that make students shed their stage fear. Apart from various club activities, the school conducts skits, speech and various other stage performances every week on a particular topic in the assembly each Monday.

Communication is a key to any relationship on earth, whether personal or corporate. An effective communicator is steadfast in his ideas and communicates clearly to the receiver. In addition to verbal communication, non-verbal communication is also crucial in communication process. Our body language and gestures have the power of reflecting our actual confidence level and sincerity.
Some vital points to be noted for typical performance before a group of audience are
Posture – The way of carrying ourselves matters. An erect posture would help you display confidence in tone and subject matter that is proposed.
Relaxed Gestures – Gestures are integral part of words spoken. Ensure free movement of hands and open up your thoughts in a more assuring way. Occupying more space and moving freely breaks the ice with the audience.
Eye Contact – Exhibiting proper eye contact is the basic necessity for any communication. If it is an audience group shift of eye contact from time to time covering everybody is the secret of trapping their attention.
Apart from these, speaking about genuine things and a personal agreement of the points presented gives an innate confidence and it would make our presentation more and more effective.
