I have a tip for this topic, too: JOIN TOASTMASTERS! It gives you the ability to better your public speaking and get over your fear (or a way to get stage time if you already love public speaking).

You would not believe the famous people that are or have been Toastmasters. I am co-leader of the club here on SP!
When you have finished your first 10 speeches, Toastmasters International will send you or your boss a letter to that effect. Same when you receive your leadership award.
It's a WONDERFUL thing to add to your resume. I have received at least one promotion due to membership in Toastmasters.
