How to overcome stage fright during a presentation

The better you understand what you're talking about, the less likely you'll make a mistake or get off track

Know your topic

When you're afraid,you may overestimate the likelihood of bad things happening. List your specific worries and work on it.

Challenge specific worries

If you lose track of what you're saying and your mind goes blank, Just take a few slow, deep breaths.

Don't fear a moment of silence

Don’t talk about your mistakes, and no one else will either, because they won’t know you made any.

Keep Your Mistakes to Yourself

If you stand stock-still, the pressure will just build. So move and don't be still.


When you have faltered at a place or two, own it up and rectify. It will help build your confidence and impress the audience too.
