As a senior manager, you are used to making tough decisions. You work under pressure. You hire, you fire. You liaise with senior colleagues every day. You’ve been doing this for a long time. So why on earth does your face still go red when you are giving a presentation?

Going red is one of the most common speech anxiety symptoms. When you go red in the face or neck, it’s a vicious cycle. As soon as you feel the warmth spreading, it makes you lose your cool…literally! Even if you avoid it happening on one occasion, it’s likely to happen the next time.

The best way to deal with going red is to treat the cause not the symptom. So what is the cause? Stress and anxiety is created by what we call ‘Public Speaking Monkeys’ – those voices of self-doubt that say negative and discouraging things. They may tell you that you’re a rubbish presenter or that you’re going bright red or alert you to the fact that your voice sounds squeaky.
