Getting Rid of the Fear and Horror of Public Speaking
If being asked to make short presentations gives you cold sweats, sleepless nights and a stomachache, you already know that the fear of public speaking is holding back your career advancement. You also know that it's time to get over it. Now there's help.
This seminar is not designed to polish your presentation skills. Instead, it concentrates on that all-important first step: it gives you the confidence to stand in front of a group and speak. You'll learn to see a presentation as nothing more than an enlarged conversation; to use a few simple tricks to calm the butterflies; and, most importantly, get through the first two minutes of your talk - the time that makes or breaks your fear of public speaking.
You will be asked to make a few, informal presentations. Our certified instructors are experts at creating safe environments where your newfound confidence can flourish.
