Public Speaking, Communication, & Presentation Skills Training
Does the thought of speaking in front of a group make you feel as though you're facing a firing squad?
You aren't alone! Statistics show that 3 out of every 4 people have some form of public speaking anxiety. That's 75%. In fact, in a list of the 10 most common fears, public speaking was cited as the NUMBER ONE FEAR even above the fear of death!
If any of this sounds like you, I can help!
The truth is ANYONE can accomplish great public speaking skills. Effective presentation skills training relies on mastering specific presentation techniques and practicing over and over again. Just like playing a sport such as golf or tennis, or playing a musical instrument, obtaining communication skills is a practiced, honed, skill-based performance art.
Prodigies are rare, so for most people the only way to become a skilled artist is to develop and practice the required skills...until the desired level of proficiency is achieved and can be repeated with confidence and style.
Every New Skill Takes a New Set of Tools
I teach you all the communication, public speaking, and presentation skill training tools you need to succeed. I'll video record your performance or presentation techniques so I can offer an objective analysis of what you did well and what you can do to gain more effective presentation skills. You'll see yourself on video and see what other people see when you are presenting. You'll then learn how you can begin analyzing your own performances more objectively and develop an on-going presentation training plan. I'll also help you overcome performance anxiety, shed inhibitions and negative self-speak that get in your way, and let your natural presentation style emerge!
I'll also show you:
- How to structure your presentation for maximum impact
- How to handle your visual aids so they add to your presentation
- How to avoid the use of distracting verbal fillers (um, uh, you know, like, etc.)
- How to gain and hold the attention of your audience
- and so much more...
In today's business world, presentation, public speaking, and communication skills training can be a valuable investment. People who communicate well with others and have great presentation techniques are often first on the list for the most lucrative and satisfying career opportunities.
Whether you've never spoken in front of a group and need the basic skills for success or you want to learn more effective presentation and public speaking skills, I can help you become the confident, organized, engaging communicator you've always wanted to be!
