Jerry Seinfeld once said that at a funeral, most people would rather be in the casket than giving the eulogy. America’s greatest anxiety, public speaking, is a necessity in today’s business world. Those who can speak in front of crowds and have effective presentational skills tend to move up the corporate ladder more swiftly. The ability to stand in front of an audience, project confidence and knowledge, all the while making a connection and capturing your audience’s imagination is very powerful and persuasive.
