breath - it will instantly make you calmer.
Focus on friendly faces
During the speech, you may take a look at the crowd and see them as a big
group of people. That may just end up confusing you. Rather, concentrate on
particular faces; you should choose the friendly ones. Move your eyes gradually and look at different people while speaking. It will also make the audience feel that you are conversing with them instead of just giving a speech.
It makes you look confident and relaxed. It also gives you time to relax and
remember exactly what you had to say.
Speaking fast and swallowing words is a blunder done by many speakers.
Avoid it at any cost.So, go out there and conquer your
fear of public speaking!
