Preparation is the silver bullet that is sure to boost confidence when you step up to speak. It requires taking the time to understand your audience, giving thoughtful consideration in crafting your message, rehearsing your presentation (out-loud), as well as soliciting feedback and adjusting where needed.
If you want to be confident, prepare!

Thank Michael, well said!
Great reminder. This is the number one tool to controlling nerves and fear of speaking. Knowing your material allows you to be in the moment, and focus on your audience.
