Rehearsing a speech to a virtual audience increases confidence

Rehearsing a speech to a virtual audience increases confidence

Giving a speech or presentation to an audience can be nerve-wracking. To practise, you can either imagine an audience or enlist a few friends or acquaintances. But these practice scenarios are far from the reality of an audience made up of different characters, emotions and interests. Ni Kang observed the behaviour of a group of people listening to speeches and developed a virtual audience for speakers to practise on. On Wednesday, 2 November, she will obtain her doctorate on the subject of ‘public speaking in virtual reality’ at TU Delft.
