What do you imagine to be the worst case scenario when you stand up around those people?

Don't give a **** what others think.
And have a positive attitude internally, and strong self-worth.

Think things through very carefully and very well. Then when people ridicule you for doing certain things, you will have arguments to fall back upon. It usually works for me

Well, as usual, do some downhill biking. That will get your confidence up.
Failing proper facilities for that; Stand up in front of smaller groups first (i.e parents, friends, teachers, etc), then expand the group size.
That's what I'd do.

Stand up straight with a good posture when talking
Do not care about everybody elses opinions
Or maybe there things you can do with yourself, e.g. like going to a gym and overtime you will end up with a good body thus more attention from the opposite sex thus a great feeling of confidence
Even pretending that you're a confident person can work well too, you may end up being the confident person you always wanted to beLast edited by bad bitch; 16-03-2011 at 21:30.

I dont know to be honest. Sometimes i feel slightly confident in the classroom, then as soon as i start speaking i feel stupid and go red. My accent probably dosent help (Geordie)
Basically i think i sound stupid then i start worrying about sounding silly and not concentrating on what im saying.
If you start to feel stupid and go red, just try and stay calm and focus on what you're saying, and keep talking. If you can at least pretend that you don't feel embarrassed, other people won't see that you're embarrassed, and you will hopefully feel a bit less embarrassed.

Practice doing presentations for small groups of family/friends. You'll get more confident with practice.
