I was asked to fill in as a speaker at a major conference in my field of business next week. I accepted as I thought it was a good opportunity to be visible to hundreds of people at once. But now that I have accepted I am freaking out. I am concerned that I will not do a good job, that the people on my panel will be more eloquent and will say more interesting things than me. As a result I don’t know where to start my presentation and I see the days pass by closer to the conference increasing my anxiety.
Please help!
