We just finished another great Fearless Presentations ® public speaking class in uptown New York City this week at the Hilton Times Square. We had a pretty nice sized class of 13 people from high finance to book publishing to high-tech engineers. Two of the participants were CEOs of their respective companies, and interestingly enough, one of the young men in class is graduating from high school next week. But they all had the same challenge before this workshop... They had a public speaking fear that they felt was holding them back from the success that they wanted.
What we have found with The Fearless Presentations ® Course is that public speaking fear is both common and easy to eliminate if you follow a simple step-by-step process. Public speaking fear (any fear for that matter) comes from situations or events where we attempt to deliver a presentation and we have what we perceive to be a failure. Much of the perception comes more from the way that we FEEL when we stand up to speak versus the way that we actually perform or the way that we look when we perform. But regardless, when we don't do as well as what we think that we could have, the nervousness or fear of public speaking grows.
So these 13 presenters became fearless by having a series of progressive successes in front of a group. With a really good public speaking coach, you too can have success after success in front of a group and eliminate your public speaking fear.
