This Week: Public Speaking Horror Stories

This week, I’ll focus on public speaking horror stories—mine and yours.

The goal isn’t simply to share fun stories about the public speaking nightmares we’ve all experienced (although I’ll admit that they can make for fun reading). Rather, my hope is to use those experiences to share lessons about what others should do if faced with a similar situation.

I’ll post a few of my own horror stories this week, but I’d also like to post yours!


Please leave your personal public speaking horror stories in the comments section below. In addition to sharing the story, please leave some advice for people who may face the same situation. Now that you’ve had time to think about what went wrong, what would you do differently?

I’ll post a few of your excerpts throughout the week. I look forward to learning from you!
