Disaster at the Podium or Fear of Public Speaking

October 4, 2010 at 1:55 pm Leave a comment

Many times I’ve had to stand in front of a large group to speak on certain topics or to conduct presentations or workshops.  Believe it or not I experience tremendous anxiety just before I talk.  Tongue-tied, sweaty palms and an inability to remember my introduction are typical reactions when I begin speaking.

For many of us in the workplace, presentations and public speaking are a necessary and vital part of our job.  Even if you are looking for work and preparing for an interview it’s important to present yourself with confidence.  No matter what – all of us need to be able to speak with success.

So don’t be shy!  Learn the strategies to conquer your fear of speaking!  Join me Wednesday, October 13th for an informative seminar titled “Speak for Success” presented by well-known speech coach and author Leila Alson, of Alson Power Speaking.  Her power-speaking method has helped many prominent business and political leaders become successful presenters.  She is also the author of “Say It Again, ” a guide to the most mispronunciated words.  Leila will provide you with the tools and techniques to become a powerful speaker.  She will show you how to listen, share information and be persuasive. 

The seminar will start at 6:00pm in the West Palm Beach Public Library’s Clematis Room and of course is free and open to all!  For more information call 561-868-7701.

If you can’t make the presentation then be sure to check-out some of our books on public speaking:

 See you at the podium!
