    So I have to give a lecture to the rest of my course members about a given topic which the group is given.
    I hate giving presentations to groups of people as my voice starts to crack, I start to mumble and I start to shake tremendously.
    Any tips to help me get through?

    I used to be like this. The best tip I can give is to know what you're presenting inside out - the fear will subside once you get flowing.

    I have a massive public speaking phobia, I was suppose to read out a small speech today about the the space shuttle challenger that blew up (may not know the disaster but no worries its not relevant) but luckily there was no time left, I have to do it next monday and am ******** myself, the last time I did a speech I kept stuttering, shaking way too much and just like you my voice started cracking. The best thing to do is just read out loud in front of a mirror, which I will probably do tommorow morning to hopefully alleviate this anxiety.

    I have just started doing ju jitsu and I haven't seen any changes in my confidence, public speaking wise, but if I do start to get more confident, public speaking wise, I will tell you. I know that learning ju jitsu focuses more on building your confidence, fight wise, but I'm doing literally anything to get rid or atleast reduce this anxiety.
