3. Background - what can you share that is related to the group's core purpose for meeting? Is it an
event, experience, a particular skill or educational qualification?

Usually the leader will start and around the members of the
group you go, one by one.
• What's the purpose of this speech? What do you want it to achieve
• What can you say that will interest people?
• What topics fit with the occasion?
• What will the people listening expect to hear?
• What tone do you use? Formal or informal?
• And more importantly, if you're anxious about public speaking,
what will stop the fear of making a complete fool of yourself?
6. Self-Preservations techniques for Nervous Speakers
• If you're inclined to be tongue-tied,
awkward and nervous, don't listen to
what others are saying before you.
• I know that seems rude but the
situation calls for self-preservation.
• If you listen, you'll get mesmerized
by their speeches and unable to plan
anything useful for yourself which will
heighten your anxiety.
