Eliminate common speaker fears & build your self-confidence - guest speaker Beth

In this complimentary interactive and “no scary goals allowed” presentation about public speaking, Beth Stoller talks about how business professionals and entrepreneurs can authentically use public speaking to grow and expand their reach. Her “goals” are to help you: • Start eliminating common speaker fears • Start building your speaker self-confidence • Set the stage for speaker success It’s Always Best to Start at the Beginning—Especially With Public Speaking! People often say that if your goal doesn’t scare you then it isn’t big enough. That kind of thinking doesn’t work when it comes to public speaking. In fact, it has the opposite effect, because if your goal is too big, it’s likely to stop you dead in your tracks. About Beth Stoller Beth Stoller is a relationship-driven person who has a passion for helping people step into their roles as speakers and leaders. In 2014, she combined her savvy organization and logistics skills with her talent for networking and established her speaker’s business, At the Podium, LLC http://www.atthepodium.biz/. In 2019, she started ATP’s Business Professionals Speaker Mastermind Group which meets the 2nd Saturday every month. “Speakers can change people’s lives for the better in a moment. That’s one of the reasons I love my work. I get to help business professionals, whether they’re aspiring or seasoned speakers, prepare for and create those moments!” Beth has an absolute belief that everyone has gifts, talents, skills, experiences, knowledge, stories, and/or special messages to share. “When knowledgeable professionals start sharing their expertise from the stage, we all benefit.” On a personal note, Beth resides in Trumbull, CT, where she lives with her husband, her son, and their dog Pancho. When Beth’s not working on At the Podium, she pursues other passions which include bookkeeping, tennis, photography, and hanging out with family and friends. Occasionally, you might also see her attempting to hit that little white ball around a golf course (it’s a networking thing).
