Here’s the Problem
It’s 7:45. Your palms are sweaty. Your hands are trembling. Your stomach is turning somersaults. You didn’t sleep well and anxiety is building.
What if your mind goes blank?
Even something as basic as standing in front of a group can make your heart race. The thought of facing a large audience can be a heart stopper.
It’s called podium panic, and you don’t need a podium to feel it. Millions of professionals struggle with its symptoms, regardless of job title or audience size – it’s as common in your world as the bottom line. Experience lessens the fear and anxiety for some, but that’s learning the hard way – and it doesn’t refine your delivery skills, or prepare you for the next presentation. You know what to say to a prospective client or in a department meeting. The how may baffle you – how to use your voice and gestures to persuade, how to keep their attention, how to exude just the right degree of confidence.
In our presentation skills course, we can show you how to overcome fear and anxiety, channel your energy, and develop skills that will come naturally when you are under pressure. You will learn how to communicate with both internal and external confidence.
