Jerry Seinfeld  made a great joke based upon surveys carried out in America –  “I read a thing that actually says that speaking in front of a crowd is considered the number one fear of the average person. I found that amazing – number two was death! That means to the average person if you have to be at a funeral, you would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy.”

A good point to remember is – if you are have being asked to stand up and give a presentation then the majority of those watching you are there because:

a) they believe that you are the expert in that field or

b) they can learn something from you.

Your audience usually wants you to succeed – remember your presentation  is more about your audience than it is about you.
