If you are worried about performing in front of large crowds or giving a presentation in front of people, if you are concerned about being watched and judged by others, and if you have anxiety about speaking in public, it is likely that you will try to avoid it as much as possible. If it is unavoidable then you will worry about it for weeks or months in advance. When people are nervous about speaking or presenting in public, they may tend to repeat certain phrases, speak rapidly, their hands tremble, they may ignore the audience, and avoid eye contact with them. They may worry a lot about what others will think of them, about getting fired, criticized or laughed at due to small mistakes in presenting, forgetting their lines, and coming across as a failure.
