ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of formal training in speaking for scientist. One tip is to start with the most comfortable material as possible. This is often the background history of the research, the experimental description, and acknowledging other co-workers. There are many myths and fallacies that people have about speaking formally at a conference. Certain aspects of the fear of speaking are not related to technical issues, but are true of any speaking to groups and in a formal setting. Most people fear being the focus of attention, with a large number of others listening carefully to every word that is said, and all eyes focused on the speaker.
