Banish fear of public speaking

Boston  College Associate Vice President for Alumni Relations John Feudo shares advice based upon a lifetime of speaking in public in his new book, I’d Rather Eat Live Spiders: A Definitive Guide to Becoming a Successful Speaker. In the book, Feudo discusses the importance of fine-tuning one’s communication skills in any field; how to overcome fear; and tips on using voice, eye contact, and hand gestures to develop a strong presentation. The key, Feudo tells the Boston Globe (last item), is treating all public speaking situations in the same manner: as a one-sided conversation in which you’re answering an unasked question.
