Crushing Public Speaking Fears
Public speaking is consistently rated as the Number 1 fear people have in surveys, ahead of heights, drowning and even death. Fear is the most debilitating emotion. We fear embarrassment or rejection, so we don’t tell the truth, we ‘play it safe’, we hide ourselves away and we don’t put ourselves out there. We shut ourselves away and protect ourselves from the discomfort and awkwardness, not realising we are also shutting the door to real happiness, fulfilment, purpose and genuine, lasting confidence. I would like to invite you to attend our public speaking and confidence meeting where I will guide us through: • Impromptu speaking off the cuff and preparing talks and presentations • Making a positive first impression and freely making connections with people • Increased, sustainable confidence and less anxiety in social settings • A greater understanding of public speaking fears and blocks • Communicating with more effectiveness, clarity and authenticity. Successful and confident people are those who have learnt to diminish their anxiety, and to channel it to propel them on to do things they never believed possible. I want to help people to go on this same journey. The strategies I share are based on my personal experience of studying and practicing public speaking, training as an actor and producing and presenting weekly hospital radio shows. In my professional life I have also prepared witnesses before appearances at Parliamentary inquiries. I encourage you to take a step toward your personal growth and join us at the meeting! The group is limited to a select number of attendees. You can purchase a spot here: Any questions please get in touch: [masked]. TESTIMONIALS I enjoyed it and particularly admire the way that Stephen injected his honesty, commitment and enthusiasm into the sessions… The most important thing that he achieves in the sessions is to make the learning experience fun and memorable and he provides the participants with a taste of success; there is nothing like success to build more success! The delegates really enjoyed Stephen's session! It was incredibly interactive and got them thinking about the impressions they currently create and need to create to make a positive impact. It would be great to run this again on another programme. He did really well. I was very impressed actually! Hi Stephen! It is really my greatest pleasure to have learned from such a professional and friendly person like yourself. Someone trustworthy who helped me to overcome my fear in public speaking. Thanks to you, I have gained a higher confidence in myself by overcoming that barrier of being a shy and afraid person to speak to a large number of people. You have made us feel capable and empowered to ‘speak with no fear’ and to show what we really feel and believe through the words we use. I am 100% sure, not only me, but the rest of the class saw the progress in each one of us. I am really happy with the results and do encourage others to do the same! Stephen’s classes are welcoming and friendly – great for anyone new or more experienced in public speaking. I find that he really listens to the class and caters for their needs so everyone can make the most of it. Stephen definitely made it less scary for me and gave me a lot of positive encouragement! Strongly recommend you to try one of his classes soon!! Stephen’s public speaking classes were inspirational, yet realistic; allowing the delegates to grow with confidence every class. I went from being very nervous and a confused speaker, to being able to understand the basics of public speaking and talk in a much more articulate manner. MORE ABOUT ME I look forward to seeing you at Crushing Public Speaking Fears! Lynchie
