Not at all nervous. It puzzles me why anyone is nervous! I suppose I just don't care what anyone in the audience thinks about me.
Same here. (However, I think I am part ham.) ʕᴥʔ

I used to be when I first started out in my career, I would honestly blush bright red and I swear my knees used to physically shake. Now, I've done it that many times, and taken presentation skills courses, that it is much easier. Unless it's with a massive crowd, I'm normally fine. My job as a HR Manager often means getting up in front of a room of people and presenting, so I've grown accustomed to it.
I used to hate if I had to talk in front of people, even at school.

I am not quite so bad now however that fear has left me not wanting to do this if I have a choice, so I guess I AM nervous talking in front of a crowd.

It depends on what I'm talking about. If I am confident with the topic I am happy to speak about it. If I'm not so sure I don't like speaking about it I dread the questions that might be asked!

My part time job is public speaking (am a Marriage Celebrant) so...no...I am not. However I always have a healthy amount of adrenaline circulating during a ceremony to make sure I do a good job and remain highly alert to everything being in the right place and happening at the right time etc..

I feel nervous when I am talking to a large group. I always think that there is someone in the audience who knows more than I do! :)
I'm fine now.
When I first started 20 years ago, I was quite bad.

Over the years, it got better and better...Plus
it helps if you are passionate about what it is
'your talking about'.
It takes a fair bit of practice, to master it.
Yes, I hate it!!
Nope, absolutely love it, it is my job and my passion.
I find that I am always nervous at the beginning, but the nerves peter out as I go on. A teacher of mine once gave me the best advice: pretend to be confident. One of those 'fake it until you make it' bits. It really works.

I sure do. I am a teacher and I'm OK with standing in front of a class of students but in front of a large crowd, no.
I am quite nervous yes! I was asked to speak at the Australian Homebirth Conference a couple of years ago and I swear it was the scariest thing I ever had to do! I spoke for fifteen minutes in front of several hundred people. It went off without a hitch in the end, and I felt great afterwards when everyone applauded.
Used to be many moons ago but not now. Its all about preparation to fight away those nerves. and practice of course. now I enjoy it a lot.
Hell No! I love it. It is the opposite with me I get anxious when I have to tal to someone one on one.
Yes but apparently I do it well most of the time

Was a trainer in Army & at work. No time for nerves, especially giving Drill Lessons in the Army!
Not nervous at all.

Very similar to what Finy wrote! And I'm still as hopeless now, even taking to anyone I don't know, as I was at school!

I t would be my worst nightmare. Even if I knew them I would still be frightened for some unknown reason. I think you have to have a lot of confidence to do it. Queen Elizabeth was very scared facing the audience I would like to know how she feels today.
Yes!
It depends on who the people are.
