Public speaking anxiety: Training to overcome your fear and speak confidently!

Next to dying, people rank public speaking as the most anxiety-inducing experience they have to face. Yet, sooner or later we all have to do it — be it a toast at a party or a presentation at work.

When we suffer from performance anxiety, our body tenses, we take short breaths, while our mind bombards us with negative thoughts. The anxiety overcomes us to the point that we are no longer paying attention to what we are saying but how bad we are feeling.

When you speak in front of others, do you ever think:

  • The speaker before me was so much better
  • I’ll just speak really fast to get this over with
  • My power point will hide my nervousness
  • I can’t breathe!
  • I am having a panic attack
  • The audience doesn’t like me!
  • What am I doing with my hands?

Through customized 3-hour workshops, one-on-one coaching or larger corporate training sessions, you will learn:

  • How anxiety creates a physiological reaction in our bodies
  • How that affects our ability to communicate
  • Exercises and techniques that help you overcome the fear

By the end of the training, you will:

  • Have a strategy for dealing with performance anxiety when you’re speaking
  • You will feel calm and confident as you approach your next presentation
  • You will overcome the barriers of public speaking to make it a joyful experience

I’ll give you the tools and  techniques to reduce your fear of speaking in public. Once you achieve a degree of comfort in public speaking, we will take your presentation to a higher level. You will find the power in your voice through breath support, developing resonance and clear articulation.
