No to both.

99% of humans are introverts. The rest are street entertainers and circus clowns.

i find it dead easy now, spent the first 20 years of my life with almost crippling shyness but not giving a f*** really helped me.
Have to do presentations at uni all the time and its just down to knowing your material imo

Agreed, once you've done a few it's like being on automatic pilot.....only problem I have now is if someone is on the course who knows me well....I always imagine they think " how has that chancer got this gig?"

Should be banned imo.

We *all have the technology to make presentation videos, and could Skype any post seminar questions.

*not NoFun, obviously.

I think the point cream was making was that speaking to a crowd of 3 or more is a nightmare.

I am definitely more on the introvert side but have little problem presenting these days. A bigger crowd is oddly much easier than say four or five. As some said, know your material and don't take it too seriously. No-one is expecting stand up.

Do quite a fair amount - panel moderating, training, workshops. The biggest issue is usually the nationality. a Koreans sit silent. Indians won't shut the f*** up. Singaporeans always try to be smart arses. Chinese funnily enough are usually the best.
