Some of them are confidence, language and preparation problems. Based on these problems, we feel intimidiated to take the oral presentations challenges in order to change our perception about the negative effects due to our weakness in handling oral presentation.

Lack of confidence is one of the major problem that we face while presenting oral presentation due to the uncertainty in presenting oral presentation.

Some of us are gifted a charismatic personality that able to attract audience to keep listening on what they talk about without any preparations. In contrast, for those who is not given a charismatic value, we agreed that lack of preparation would affect the effictiveness and efficiency in performing the oral presentation. This is because oral presentation is not only to communicate among each other, it also involves with the communcation arts which is sometimes make us feel bounded with it.
