Fall Workshops

Is your fear of speaking depriving you of career and leadership opportunities?

Cure your Speaker’s Anxiety Workshops

Do these masks remind you of your audiences? In my 35+ years helping emerging and accomplished leaders enhance their capacity to lead by becoming great speakers, I have noticed that all of them have expressed at least some hesitation, fear, anxiety, or pure terror at the prospect of facing their audience. On some level, they are sure they will screw up, be harshly judged and will bring shame to their organization and themselves.

Come to one or more of these workshops offered on Saturday mornings this fall:

October 21st
November 18th
From 9-12

This workshop is highly interactive, so come prepared to participate. I enjoy showing my clients that presenting can not only be survived, but it can be lots of fun. Consequently I structure my workshops to be full of pleasurable activities. We will analyze what is causing speaker’s anxiety and then launch into a series of exercises showing how to release the anxiety and connect with audiences. Participants will get lots and lots of practice.

THE FEE is $95.00
THE LOCATION is the Mercer Island Community and Event Center (Calkins Room).
