Do you have a speech or presentation pending and feel unprepared?
Do you freeze or feel awkward in front of an audience?
Do you want to hold your listeners’ attention while putting them at ease?
Let’s prepare together.
If you dislike speaking in front of an audience, you are not alone.
Fear of public speaking affects up to 75% of adults.*
But that fear can stall your career.
In a survey of more than 600 employers, “[good] oral communication” was the most sought-after skill; “presentation skills” came fourth.**
Confidence with spoken communication has become even more vital in the age of the hybrid workplace.
Many job interviews—especially for senior-level positions—now require a presentation to an interview panel, either in-person or online.**
If a presentation’s on your horizon, we are here to help.
