How to Deal With Nerves as a Public Speaker

With The Speaker Lab

If there’s one thing every speaker faces before a speaking gig it is the possibility of nerves, and how to deal with those nerves. Ask any seasoned veteran of the public speaking world and they’ll tell you they have received all sorts of advice, some of it good and some of it not as good.

Because there’s so much misinformation out there about how to deal with nerves I’m devoting today’s episode to that very topic.

On today’s episode of The Speaker Lab, we’ll be covering that and much more!
