Though nerves before a presentation are natural, you can conquer them. Use these three tips:

  1. Memorize the beginning. A strong opening sets the stage for a great speech.
  2. Put things in perspective. Your listeners believe that you are the expert. They likely won’t know when you’ve stumbled unless you tell them.
  3. Smile. Smiling increases your sense of well-being and relaxes you.
