The Confidence Doctor
Presentation Skills Trainer • Executive Speech Coach • International Speaker
No matter who you are or what you do, speaking well is one of the most important skills you can develop. Personal relationships, social interactions and work situations all require you to communicate with other people.
By becoming a better speaker you can advance your career, enhance your reputation, boost your self-confidence and open up countless opportunities.
Why is it people fear public speaking so much?
The fear of public speaking is the #1 fear of all fears. It ranks far above the fear of death, heights, sickness, jumping out of a plane or loneliness.
Overcoming this fear is the first step to becoming an effective public speaker, powerful communicator and influencer. It’s a skill that’s essential if you want to have impact at work, at home or in your community.
If you’re only able to talk with people one-on-one, you’re greatly limiting your ability to grow and succeed in life. Everything at a higher level involves being able to talk with groups of people.
