After carefully reviewing this best selling public speaking course devised by Jason Teteak, I have come to the conclusion that seeking professional advice does hone your public speaking skills considerably.
The biggest fear that you all face (including me) while speaking in front of a packed audience is to be cool, calm, composed and completely natural.

What are the 7 Deadly Sins of Public Speaking in Everyday Life?
Even before you start searching for the best public speaking course in the world today, you need to first get your basics right. This is with special regards to speaking out in front of others on a day to day basis.
While all of us do interact with more than a single individual daily, sometimes, speaking out in front of others (especially a group) is a daunting task indeed. Not all suffer from public speaking hesitations but many of us do.
So, what do we do in such a scenario?
Well, here are a few typical issues that often plague us when we are out in the public speaking our mind in front of others:
Am I Good Enough for the Speech:
Assuming that you need to speak in front of a group of people, you need to be confident of your own abilities. More often than not, lack of self-confidence is what tarnishes your well-prepared speech. So, regardless of whether you are addressing an audience that is here to listen to your words or a group of friends at a collage party, your hesitation is what often stops you from speaking out.
You therefore need to work on your self confidence. Regardless of what the other party thinks of you, supreme self-confidence is what shall get you through even the stickiest of situations. So, speak your mind and convince yourself that whatever you are saying aloud is perfect for the audience.
Would I be Able to Speak Out in front of a Group?
If you are sure of the topic and you have in-depth knowledge on the same then, there is nothing to worry about. Nonetheless, this is just the first battle won in terms of public speaking. You now need to ensure that you stop getting jittery when facing a larger audience. Getting nervous is not new to anyone. Almost each and every one of us tends to get nervous.
Nonetheless, your level of nervousness is what determines your mental stability when you are speaking in front of a packed audience. If you are scared of facing others, you should try and not maintain eye contact with them. A simple trick is to look just above the heads of your audience and speak.
This way, you are actively engaging with the audience and not looking directly in their eyes. Also, have a pen & paper handy that has your speech written on it. In case you tend to forget any part of your speech (due to nervousness) then, you can look-up the paper and continue speaking.
I Simply Cannot Memorize the Speech:
Some speakers are confident and not nervous while speaking in front of a packed audience. This is just half the battle won. Nonetheless, these ‘confident types’ simply cannot remember their speech. This is a natural issue that has nothing to do with your lack of confidence. If you forget what you need to speak in front of an audience, things can go ‘south’ rather quickly.
To avoid this from happening and hampering your daily lives, you need to make an effort and recite the speech a couple of times at home. If still you think that you shall forget then, you should take a pen and paper and write the entire speech down. Always keep this paper handy when you are speaking to others. Use it as a reference as and when you forget to keep the chain of thoughts synchronized.
How would My Listeners React?
You have absolutely no control over the behavior of your audience. If someone laughs at your speech or yawns then, you need not to get disturbed. This is a natural act of an audience that you simply cannot control. Instead of getting bothered by how the audience shall react to your words, focus on delivering your speech flawlessly.
If someone yawns then, crack a joke. Doing so shall lighten up the atmosphere and grab the attention of anyone who is getting bored. If someone laughs then, say something serious that shall stop them from laughing and force such individuals to pay attention to you. Basically, you need to improvise in order to keep the audience in your grip.
What if the Roof Collapsed?
In case you are expecting something that has yet to happen then, you need to be careful. For example, if you are scared that the power would shut down or the roof shall collapse as you speak then, calm down. These are things that you have absolutely no control over. So, quit worrying about such incidences.
In case you cannot get over these thoughts then, you need to learn how to maintain a calm mindset. Your focus should be to get on with your speech. Quit worrying about what is not in your control. Practice meditation in order to maintain laser focus. Yoga and regular exercise sessions too enable you to achieve this aim.
I am Not Comfortable with Mikes and Projectors:
It is quite possible that you may not be comfortable with electronic items that dictate our lifestyle. So, the mike, screens, projectors and even the speakers, tend to irritate speakers that belong to the old school of thought. Nonetheless, you cannot avoid these in today’s world.
Get in sync with the latest technology as soon as possible. Take lessons from an expert in the field of technology to ease your burden. Try practicing speaking with electronic gadgets that irritate you in private. When you are fully comfortable with them, use the same in your final speech.
