Public Speaking

It is estimated that 75% of people get nervous and anxious while speaking publicly (Hamilton, 2008). Fear of public speaking is the number one fear held by human beings. Higher than the fear of spiders, snakes, heights and even death!

Do you want to be remembered?

Do you want your messages to live on in people’s lives?

Do you want to make people think and to make them feel?

Do you want to deliver great speeches or presentations

Do you want to train,or facilitate with impact?

but…

Does nervousness, anxiety, or inexperience get in the way of you achieving this?

If so read on below…

Fear of Public Speaking

I know how it feels to be standing above a sea of faces, staring back at you expectantly. As if you can hear your audience thinking things about you: “this had better be good”, “who does this idiot think they are?”, “have I got to sit through a whole hour of this?”. Terrified of freezing up, being laughed at, being judged, your heart thumps, your breathing shortens, your face is glazed with sweat and your normal thinking disconnects. You know you have to speak about something, but you can’t completely remember what. You are brain-dead, ready to fight to the death, run for your life, or do your best impression of a snowman.... but definitely not ready to give the performance of your life! At the most critical moment you have been let down by your own emotions...

Why I Can Help

...That was me, that was normal and could have been normal forever, had I not (back in 2012) learned from a wise old wizard at the top of a mountain, to create a new possibility for speaking with true authenticity and impact. Okay there was no wizard and no mountain. Actually I learned from many people (and like all of us, I am still learning) though it was my friend and mentor, Kevin Batchelor who first helped me to own my performance and speak from the heart, uninhibited! I immediately started helping others to do the same and quickly realised it was working. I also realised that it really is possible for anyone to speak with power, confidence and integrity. Since then I have helped thousands of people in this way, from tech start-ups to social enterprises. From international executives, to entrepreneurs and young people who are“NEET”.
