Does the thought of public speaking cause you to feel anxiety and concern? You are not alone, it does for most people. There are many people that miss fantastic opportunities for speaking to an audience at conferences, teaching a class at your work, or simply accepting an award for your hard work. Being a good speaker can boost your self-confidence, and enhance your reputation. Most importantly, public speaking is a learnable skill!
As a Distinguished Toastmaster of Toastmasters International, Professional Registered Parliamentarian with the National Association of Parliamentarians®, and US Air Force veteran, I can provide you with the skills necessary to become a better public speaker.
My program provides a balance of Communication and Leadership that is incorporated with your own style. I won't try to make you into a perfect orator, but, help you develop the presence and confidence necessary to connect with others and inspire them. I will teach you how to build trust and credibility with your audience and to be able to clearly convey your message.
There is simply no "best way" to do a presentation. What is most important is that you are comfortable, able to share your passion, and demonstrate your expertise on the topic. If you are fearful or disingenuous, the audience will pick up on that and "tune out". That is why I will work closely with you to help you focus on presence and authenticity.
