Did you know that the fear of public speaking is bigger than the fear of death? Do you feel nervous or have the stage freight prior to taking the stage or performing on television? Just to let you know that this is normal and understandable, and it is even good for you. But, too much fear and anxiety can ruin everything you prepared for your audience!
Fear of public speaking can, indeed, cripple you. Although different people have different capabilities to communicate, it is wrong to think that fascinating public performances are god given or matter of inborn talent. On the contrary, behind every excellent public performance is extensive preparation, work on the script and in person work with the experts!
During this training, we will help you learn to control the “butterflies“ in your stomach and bring your hopefully still ulcer free stomach back to its original position. We will help you avoid mistakes and teach you how to use humor to your advantage to relax your audience. We will also teach you the significant non-verbal gestures to support the message; what audio-visual aids to use; when you look at the journalist and when at the camera; how to establish the connection with the audience; and simply how to make your public performance better.
We will, in general, help you restore your confidence and improve your public speaking skills! Call us.
To overcome fear and anxiety of public speaking as well as to learn the communications skills necessary for successful public speaking performance.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the fear of public speaking is so grave that it prevents you from performing well in front of colleagues or business partners, or if it distracts you from having a political career because political engagement requires public appearances, let us know and we can help you.

If this is the case, then only after the individual therapy is completed, we will organize the above described training to improve your speaking and general communications skills. We will help you shine on stage, just like you always wanted!
