Workshop Description:

Fear is a common experience for almost every person that speaks in front of an audience of any size. Rejection, failure, ridicule, not knowing answers to questions, the list goes on. Most of this fear can be managed and overcome, allowing you to feel more confident, and deliver a clear and impactful presentation.

Famous speakers have worked hard to overcome their fears, and go through a conscious preparation before they take the stage. In this bootcamp we will identify what comes between you and presenting confidently, and learn techniques to move through your fears. You will leave the bootcamp with a personalized plan to overcome your fear of public speaking.
