Authentic Public Speaking
Public speaking is considered to be the top fear of the general public. Unfortunately, many people are thrown into speaking situations without any opportunity to practice or develop this skill. In this class you will have a chance to expand and test your abilities in a safe, supportive and fun environment. During the class you’ll have an opportunity to go through a variety of fun experiences to help you develop your skill and comfort in front of any group. Centering, improvisation, and the principles of NLP and Ericksonian Hypnosis will be leveraged so you can gain access to your most comfortable and authentic self while in front of one, two or a hundred people.

The format was great and I gained more tools than I thought I would, and I feel much more comfortable, ready and even excited to present. I know I will still be nervous when I speak and it will take me a while (and lots of practice) to fine tune my skills, but you’ve set me on the path to success and I really appreciate it. You’re an awesome teacher!
