According to a Book of Lists survey, 41% of people’s biggest fear is “public speaking”. To put that into perspective, “death” is the biggest fear for 19%, “flying” for 18% and “clowns” don’t even register (which does make me seriously doubt the survey’s credibility).
I gave my first public presentation at IOUG Collaborate 2015 last week in Las Vegas and I didn’t die.
Why did do make your presentation debut at the second largest Oracle event on the calendar? Excellent question.
