      Hi, Hassam,

      Good Hub. I've been into public speaking for nearly forty years. Started in 1972 at a Toastmasters Club in New Zealand. You are right about the importance of public speaking. It does instill an awful lot of confidence once you've mastered the basics. It also opens a lot of opportunities.
