I have to give a presentation on wednesday. I am fairly well prepared and everything.. I'm just really worried about actually giving it
I have always been terrified of talking in front of groups.. In secondary school I actually got so stressed about it I had to go and see my teacher in tears and he eventually agreed to let me present it to him at lunch time rather than in front of the group.
I just like start shaking and go really red, and then I can't talk properly and I kind of mumble really quickly through the whole thing so no-one understands a word of it because im in such a hurry to sit down again
Any advice or tips anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. Practice isn't helping as I have had this problem the whole way through school and now at university

Just keep telling yourself that no one naturally finds it that easy and everyone knows what you're going through. If something actually did go wrong, which is very unlikely, there'll be more sympathy and empathy than anything else.

And if that doesn't work be confident that you're successfully losing weight and have an awesome Michael McIntyre username!

As much as I dislike presentations I can't deny there's an adrenalin rush after I've forced myself to do one! My tips are to plaster a smile on your face (even though you won't feel like it) and just make sure to look your audience in the eye to engage them. Honestly, it's over before you know it and it's an achievement!
