Overcome Your Fear Of Public Speaking


"All the great speakers were bad speakers once.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Public speaking is often regarded as the No. 1 fear of people around the world and many people say they would rather die than have to stand up and speak. People avoid public speaking, they get nervous, they panic, they get stage fright and they break out into a cold sweat. Yet public speaking is such an important skill. It is part of our work, our careers and everyday life.

This workshop is designed to help people who don’t normally do public speaking or who have a fear of public speaking or who wish to become more confident in their public speaking. The skills learned in this workshop will help you to step up and assist you in many speaking situations including but not limited to anyone who:
