I suffered for years from the fear of public speaking so I know first hand what an awful curse it can feel like to have your potential locked up inside of yourself by the fear. It can feel like you're being forced to accept less of a life than you deserve. Don't do that!


I did and YOU can too! What finally got me ready to end my fear was a horrible public speaking experience at work. I just locked up inside in the middle of a presentation and couldn't remember what I was talking about or why I was even up there. It was humiliating but it hindsight that "disaster" was a bit of a gift because it forced me to finally commit to conquering my fear of public speaking. 

I decided if it took the rest of my life I would walk in front of audiences free of fear! I committed to saying YES to every speaking opportunity I could find. With courage I never knew I had I lead presentations at work, I mc'd friend's weddings, I joined public speaking clubs and I signed up for public speaking contests. I even tried stand up comedy. I said YES to them all. 

Was that easy? NO! But necessary? YES!

I wasn't any sort of overnight sensation but gradually I reclaimed my confidence in front of an audience and even began to learn to enjoy myself there. 

Somewhere along the way an organization offered me money to speak to their people about my personal quest to conquer public speaking fear. I said NO. :) Then I gathered my nerve and said YES. That lead to me saying YES to public speaking in a way I never dreamed could have ever been possible for me. I said YES to making it my career. I started Toronto Speakers Academy and have never looked back. You could say I went from public speaking fear to public speaking career! Now I enjoy helping other people conquer public speaking fear and tap into their fuller potential. 

From the moment I started my company I knew that I wanted to do 3 things with my life:

1. Make it my personal mission to help others overcome public speaking fear.

2. Invent a more fun and inspiring way to build speaking confidence and skills.

3. Build a community of courageous and inspiring people to share my journey with.

The result is Ignite Your Inner Speaker.
