Fear of speaking in public

Greater than death or even the fear of spiders, personally I dont get it, dont get me wrong, when I present I get anxious, scared and all the other traits that go along with the risk of public humiliation, but the drive and thrill of getting it right is far more powerful. I recently heard of a senior manager who would avoid public speaking at all costs, I wonder how much this is limiting her career as presenting and conveying your leadership message is part and parcel of modern day management. What I hope to share with you is my daily experiences of people presenting, good and bad, even include some videos and together, we'll analyse how people present, and how we can learn from other peoples mistakes.
