  • Be positive about your audience.
  • Have fun.
  • Build experience.
  • Befriend your audience.

Point 1 to 5 is there to control the speaker’s anxiety. It is advisable to have a big breath before public speech (relax). Allow time for a short meditation and think positively. Assume that the speech is a success even before your public speaking is started. While you publicly speaking try to have fun. If you do not have fun doing it then is it worth doing it at all?

Point 6 is there to directly bring the audience on your side. In other words, it is an icebreaker in public speaking. The icebreakers help to relax participants, have a role in building relationships and allow for team atmosphere. Good public speaking and icebreaker lets you have fun.
