Do you know that feeling of increased perspiration? Wondering if anyone has noticed? Sweaty hands… sweating armpits… sweating forehead? We’re not talking about a first date when you’re exercising. We’re talking about when you’re nervous presenting – sweating as social anxiety. It’s an outward sign of your nerves, and there’s no disguising it. We’ve probably all seen a speaker stumble through their presentation while wiping their palms and mopping their forehead, the dark patches under their arms spreading across their shirt. It’s a horrible feeling – both to be that person and to watch that person.

Are you a professional struggling with public speaking? We’ve helped hundreds of professionals become confident speakers. Contact us today to discuss 1-to-1 training and taster sessions.

Hyperhidrosis – or excessive sweating – is a condition that affects hundreds of thousands of people in the UK. While primary Hyperhidrosis has no known causes or triggers, secondary Hyperhidrosis is triggered by social anxiety, including situations like public speaking and presenting virtually.

How to tackle sweating during public speaking

So how can you improve your mentality around public speaking so it doesn’t lead to nervous sweating, one of the most common speech anxiety symptoms? You must treat the cause not the symptom, and that means getting to the root of your public speaking issues. For many years now, we’ve been working with professional clients to tackle and tame their ‘Public Speaking Monkeys’ – those voices of self-doubt that discourage you. They might tell you that you’re a sweaty mess, a boring speaker, your slides are dull or even make you believe that the audience member who “went to the toilet” has actually abandoned your presentation.

However, by tackling your issues head-on, you will tame those pesky monkeys. Your new-found confidence will allow you to become a clear and calm speaker, and you won’t need to feel nervous or sweaty.

So what are you waiting for? If you suffer from sweating during presentations, it’s time to take action. You can buy our book Taming Your Public Speaking Monkeys: Building confidence for public speaking and presentations, or you could read more about our multi-award winning one-to-one presentation coaching.
