Table of contents


“What will people think? What if I do badly or if I forget? How can I speak with more power? How can I really engage people throughout?” For the last decade, I have been coaching people to become fearless and powerful in their communication. Just search for me on YouTube and see the TEDx talk on Fear of Public Speaking. If you find that useful, you will love this course.
There are 3 main areas of focus, (1) Conquering Stage Fear, (2) Create Strong Content, and (3) Speaking Powerfully: Includes Conversational Skills, Body Language, Storytelling, Speeches, Interviews, etc. Plus I offer personal feedback and coaching sessions as well – offered in my premium course on my personal website.
