I've had been plagued by an episode years ago where I froze up in front of dozens of senior executives and it haunted me for a VERY LONG TIME. I worked my butt off and made sure I didn't have recurring episodes, and sorry to report every once in a while, you will be scared shitless before a speech, but time and time again, I always find the same thing. When I do good I blow away the rest of the speakers. It's all in my head. The fear is baseless. Good luck everyone.
