Ambitious Entrepreneur – Taking the fear out of public speaking

Does the thought of speaking in public cause you to go into a state of panic? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ – you’re certainly not alone.

Studies have shown that people fear public speaking more than they fear death. In fact, it’s not uncommon for people to turn down contracts because the new role involves public speaking.

If you’ve been turning down amazing opportunities to promote your business to a group of people because of your fear of speaking in public, this show is for you.

Join Annemarie Cross as she speaks with Robert Williams – Voice Coach, Trainer, Writer and Broadcaster about the three fundamentals of getting your voice heard so that you can calm your nerves and finally begin to speak with confidence.

According to Robert, even seasoned speakers still experience apprehension prior to an event, however in these situations it’s important to fall back on technique. Some of the techniques that Robert shares include:

– Why breathing the correct way is crucial,
– Why you need to watch your posture (and why this can be a knock out seller for your business), and
– Why being hydrated is so important not only for you, but also for your voice
Learn why a strategic pause through your presentation is a great technique to help you slow down the pace of your speech. Often when someone is nervous they tend to speak quickly, and they quickly loose the attention of their audience. If you’re nervous and have the tendency to rush your speech, make sure you know how to do a strategic pause.

Find out why it’s important to be knowledgeable in the topic you are speaking about as you’ll quickly loose all credibility if you stumble through your topic.

“When the heart, mind and mouth speak in unison – that’s when the dynamite happens,” says Robert.

Want to take the fear out of public speaking so that you can build rapport with your audience and position yourself as an authority in your field and deliver a dynamic presentation?

Robert shows you how.
