For many of you, public speaking is like the opening of Eminem's Lose Yourself: "Palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy." It's a major source of fear.

Like anything you fear you can overcome it. Speaking in front of any audience is for many a part of the job.

So, how do you overcome fear and anxiety and give a killer presentation? That's what this episode covers.

My guest is Matt Abrahams. He is a lecturer at Stanford Graduate School of Business and Business Partner at Bold Echo, a communication solutions organization. He's also the author of Speaking Up without Freaking Out.
