For context, I've been on a team of 8 for a year now and recently my team has taken on a very big project for the company. Because of this, naturally, a lot of managers want presentations of what is going on. While we do have presentations within the team, our company has scheduled a bi-weekly demo for anyone who wants to demo anything in front of the company (this is set up in such a way that there is a casual gathering in front of 50+ people) but naturally we are more required to give a presentations given our project.
Needless to say, most of my team members do not feel comfortable giving presentations. This is a very related question and I would say most of my team members have been fairly vocal about not wanting to give presentations. We have a few new members on our team and it sets a pretty bad precedence which ends up discouraging them from wanting to present their work either. I think what makes it more challenging is the senior engineer and our team lead on our team are very reluctant to give presentations.
Inevitably, while I also don't feel comfortable giving presentations, because I gave one recently and I am willing to give them since I understand it's good for my career, I am always nominated and assigned the task. There have been times I have said no and yet I still get assigned. Since I am the "most comfortable", I've become a scapegoat to give presentations and I believe my manager recognizes that. The truth is, I don't mind giving the presentations sometimes but I feel I can't always give the presentations.
I had a talk with my manager about how we can motivate and encourage the team to give presentations and he said "this is something we'll have to work on together over time."
I am just wondering if there is anything I can do or perhaps something I can suggest to my manager to help with this? I really liked the suggestion in this question's answer (How to request senior team members to prepare well for the team meeting?) where there was a way to not come off rude towards more senior members but it doesn't really seem applicable for my situation as it isn't just the senior engineers that have the issue of not wanting to share the responsibility of speaking.
