Believe it or not I knew an executive who had a similar problem and he found that going to a course on public speaking helped.

Usually, this can be handled with a few things. If it's public speaking, sometimes a med that is used only on those occasions is prescribed. These are not antidepressants or anxiolytics.

You can also use relaxation breathing before any social event that would cause you a problem, use positive self-talk to coach yourself to calm down. It will take a bit of work, but you can do it.
