Do you get nervous at public meetings?

public-meetingDo you get nervous at public meetings ? the simple tip is ” be Yourself ” 

Public meetings can make even the most outgoing person nervous. In such a socially intense environment, it’s easy to have a mini identity crisis: Who am I?,Why would people listen to me?…

Forget those worries and be yourself. Resist the urge to drop a name or spout off your credentials, e.g., you have a fancy title or you’ve had work published. Instead, get to know people as people, free of titles and status. Let them get to know you in the same way. Sure, it’s nerve-wracking to introduce yourself without immediately identifying your role. But try asking open-ended questions and getting personal. Ask your fellow attendee what she’s liking about the meeting, or even how far she traveled to get there.
