The wedding season is in full swing and, all over the country, there are normally confident, engaging, witty, reliable and articulate people who are losing sleep over their responsibility of being “best man” (or indeed, person) and the bit of public speaking associated with the role!
Speaking in public can be daunting. That is why there are rafts of books, articles and, indeed, a whole industry (like my own) geared up to advise and coach people to do it well and, importantly, memorably!
