Public Speaking 101Page 3 of 8 just absolutely love it. I love seeing people go from average toreally excelling in this skill set.Michelle Prince: That's amazing. I was just at a conference this weekend and thespeaker that was on the stage said that the No. 1 fear of people allover the world is public speaking, and her point was, "So you wouldrather be dead than being up here in my shoes on the stage?"Have you always been confident when speaking?Kerrie Espuga: No. Actually, I remember avoiding certain situations where publicspeaking would be involved, like in high school. I would never gofor student council positions that did have public speaking, and Iremember even in college and the work world, if there weremeetings, I would be the last one to speak up for example. Or, if we had a workshop with different flipcharts, I would rather scribethan present.I really was quite afraid of taking that risk for fear of others judgingme. And then, after I built the confidence and got over that, Ithought, "Hey, I could help other people who are in the same shoesI was in. I could definitely help them come out of their shell andreally show the true potential that they do have."Michelle Prince: It always amazes me that everybody seems to have that fear across the board. You talk to anyone; most people don't like to getup in front of a group of people.Kerrie Espuga: Right. One topic we discuss in our public speaking classes, is toremember that the audience would rather be in the audience than infront of the room. So if somebody's doing a presentation for example, all they have to remember is that the audience is thinking,"Better them than me!"Michelle Prince: That's right.Kerrie Espuga: Most of the time, the audience wants the speaker to do well. Theyreally want to find value, whether it's a meeting or a Webinar or atraining class. They're not hoping that people do poorly. They'rehoping they get something out of it.Michelle Prince: That is so true. The person doing the speaking is actually thinkingabout all those things that probably no one else is.
