Fear is the main barrier to successful presentations. It is important to engage the audience in order to be an effective professional presenter. I definitely have a fear of public speaking and this prevents me from fully enjoying the experience of sharing knowledge and my vision. However, this weakness is only with large groups of 5 or more people. I suppose I’m afraid I’ll make a huge mistake and everyone will laugh or critique me. Also, another weakness is a lack of eye contact with the audience. I tend to focus on a few friendly faces when it is important to make the entire audience feel as if you are speaking directly to them. Facing my fear one step at a time seems to help ease the nervousness a little more each time. According to Foulkes, 2014, acquiring the skill of professional presentation can increase a nurse’s sense of empowerment and confidence. One method which could potentially calm my nerves before a presentation would be to utilize deep breathing and visualization. Also, doing something to release the nervous energy such as taking a quick walk outside. In addition, I believe if I can visualize myself as a confident speaker who is engaging and interesting, it could help this become a reality. Also, being organized and well-prepared will be vital to the success of my presentation. Moreover, practicing with a friend or family member could provide useful feedback.

My strength is that if I am passionate about the topic, I tend to be enthusiastic and lively. I’m more concerned about sharing my knowledge and/or vision than my fears. So, whenever presenting professionally, its vital that I truly believe in the topic. Also, another strength is that I tend to keep presentations to the point and enjoy creating visual tools such as powerpoints.
