Fearless! Public Speaking Bootcamp 2020: April
Eventbrite's fee is nonrefundable.
We understand the fear of public speaking. We understand where it comes from and we understand how to help you fix it.
Living in fear of speaking out in a group or living in fear of your next presentation can hold you back significantly in both your personal life and in your career.
We believe that anyone can overcome this fear and go on to give successful presentations without stress.
Fearless Bootcamp is a 4 hour workshop. These four hours are a small investment of time for a huge reward. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in any speaking situation, whether interpersonal or public.
A four hour seminar will not, in itself, remove your fear of speaking, but will provide you with all the tools necessary to put into practice in order to change your mindset and your habits, and to approach public speaking with a proven process to ensure success.
We invite you to join us for this small group session in a relaxed and supportive learning environment. Our coaches have years of expertise in working with participants of all levels, however this seminar is reserved for those with fear of speaking in public. (We offer other seminars for those who have different speaking needs.) You will be in good company!
Our sessions are based on both lecture/discussion and interactive exercises. We believe that many of the skills necessary for confident speaking may be learned by understanding theory and techniques while practicing one-on-one, while gradually incorporating the skills interpersonally and eventually...... in front of an audience. The timing of “eventually” is up to you. While we will invite you to practice the technique one-on-one, there is NO PRESSURE to speak publicly in our sessions. You may speak in front of our small audience if you wish, but you will still gain valuable experience if you choose not to do so.
