So ive been asked to be a Miba (Mums in business association) guest speaker for my local area. I immediately said yes as I felt honoured to be asked, but now im bricking it lol. Im one of those people, who will always put on a brave face, paint on a smile and the more nervous I get, the more silly I get. So anything could happen on the day. But that’s me, and I wont pretend to be anything other than that. Which I guess is ironic, as my subject is whats you USP – what makes you different, what makes you stand out?
So other than picturing people naked (which I soooooo don’t want to do, these are mums and if its anything like my baby body, its not something I wish to see) or standing there with a bag over my head, has anyone any proper advice about public speaking?
Facing your fears isn’t easy but im gonna hold on to the fact that the thought of fear, is worse than the fear itself and its a great opportunity & an amazing learning curve even if I go bright red, babble like a baby, then trip up on way out. So send positive vibes my way and ill let you know how I go on.
