    the fact that you're considering it suggests to me that you probably need it

    one time in university I was very unprepared for a presentation and made a stumbling, stuttering, big pause fool of myself
    I vowed to never let that happen again
    ever since then I've been pretty good at presentations but I want to be better

    a coworker i knew years ago joined it

    it helped him with his anxiety, but he still sucked as a presenter
