A great group of people met in Dallas, TX on May 14-15 to overcome their fear of public speaking and to improve their presentation skills. A smaller offers the participant more one on one coaching, more time to spend on the different modules. In addition the atmosphere is more relaxed and helps the participant feel more relaxed and in the end achieve more success. The Fearless Presentations Public Speaking Workshop is centered on the philosophy is that we have to have right attitude to develop a new skill, we must learn the proper techniques to be a great presenter, and to practice the new skills. But, participants found that the biggest difference between this workshop and others they have attended was the practicing the techniques they have learned prior to presenting to the room. Just to name a few things the Fearless Presentation course covers is the power of stories and being persuasive without your audience feeling manipulated.
The group quickly bonded and it was hard not to notice the networking going on in the group. Everyone shared openly and enjoyed the different activities aimed at increasing their comfort in presenting and their ability to deliver effective public presentations. The group realized when watching the recorded session that 90% of nervousness doesn’t show which it helps when continuing with the presentation. It was a great group, very enthusiastic, funny, and outspoken. The comments from the participants were very good, for example “The instructor was informative and answered all my questions, so when the class ended I felt confident about moving forward with this skill” “I am very thankful that I attended this class and I would recommend it to my colleagues”
