A tip to mask the fear

Most people find public speaking scary and uncomfortable.

Separation anxiety occurs…..you are no longer a part of the group.  What can you do?

Focus on using hand gestures.

Hand gestures mask the fear more effectively than any of the other body language skills.  They get you engaged with your talk and help you look more confident.  If you plan out a few illustrative hand gestures before you speak, and then be disciplined to execute them, your audience won’t realize you are frightened.  Consequently, many experience a reduction in fear.
