Each of us is familiar with a public speech and/or presentation: whether it was a presentation at university, a job interview, a home celebration, a wedding speech or a meeting with a superior. 

Public speaking and presentation have for a long time been in the forefront of all known phobias.

Do you feel the same?

So what to do about that? How to fight your fear of standing in front of an audience? How to attract and keep the audience's attention? How to properly prepare for a presentation/speech? How to know and control your body more intuitively and wisely?
