All of us communicate, and presenting is an integral part of the communication process. We present our thoughts, ideas or knowledge to others whether it is a one-to-one situation, a small group of friends, or a large audience many of whom we do not know.
The author argues that essentially the skills involved in each of these scenarios are similar. It is basically a matter of increasing our self-confidence to go beyond our existing comfort zone.
