A few years ago I was giving a talk in Dublin and afterwards I was approached by a very shy man.
He told me that he dreamed of being a successful speaker but didn’t know how to overcome his fear of public speaking.
Slight issue there indeed…. 🙂
The comedian Jerry Seinfeld once said that most people would rather be in the coffin than deliver the eulogy – this is because the majority of people fear public speaking more than death!
I shared with the man that I used to be terrified of public speaking.
