  • Turning Fear Into Courage: Finding Your Power In Public Speaking

    MUST RSVP HERE: https://bostonspeaks.com/breakthroughseminars/fearintocourage Fear is a common experience for almost every person that speaks in front of an audience of any size.

Famous speakers have worked hard to overcome their fears, and go through a conscious preparation before they take the stage.

You will leave the bootcamp with a personalized plan to overcome your fear of public speaking. *This bootcamp has pre-work!* Come prepared with a 3-minute speech on any subject you choose.
