11 people participated in the Fearless Presentations class held in Phoenix, AZ, on January 20-21, 2011. This was a great class of exceptional individuals who came to conquer their fear of public speaking, as well as learn an effective way to prepare and present with impact and enthusiasm. The 11 ranged from a tire company to health care systems to credit card security. The wide range of experience and personalities added to the fast-paced learning experience. Each person had great ability and by overcoming the fear of public speaking will be able to do and accomplish more.

During the two days of training each person got the opportunity to present in front of the group, received coaching, and shared ideas on making presentations more interesting from the audience’s point of view. Often times we prepare by just making some notes, or preparing some words almost in random order. We feel the pressure and prepare in a way that is least effective. When we have done the prep we still feel unsure and that adds to our insecurities and nervousness.

During the class we addressed public speaking fear, but also shared an easy way to make preparation effective and fear reducing. This technique reduces fear, makes preparation much easier and, the best part; it makes your presentations fun and informative. The key is using your strengths to help the audience receive the information in a way that connects with them.

Congratulations to the 11 outstanding people that chose the Fearless Presentations ® class in Phoenix to help them with their public speaking needs. Their audiences will see and appreciate the difference!
