Presentation Skills: Overcoming Stage Fright's Stage Fright Pre-Game ChecklistLet’s face it, presenting in front of an audience, whether it’s your classmates or professionals in your field, can be intimidating. Everyone gets nervous before presenting – it’s natural. However, sometimes this nervousness can grow into a heart-pounding, fear-filled anxiety. Don’t let it get to that point! recently published an article called, “Eliminate Stage Fright with a Pre-game Checklist.” 

In this article, Thorin Klosowski includes tips for preparing (practice, memorize part of the presentation, and prepare answers to common questions ahead of time) and calming yourself before the presentation. There is even a pocket-sized checklist you can print out and use during your next presentation: pocketsizedstagefright.pdf

Being prepared and relaxed can significantly improve your presentation and your experience.
