Cure the Fear, Embrace the Power: Public Speaking for You and Your Children
January 3, 2013
Hosted by Chris Efessiou
If you’d rather die than speak in front of a group of strangers, you are not alone. Research shows that Public Speaking is the #1 fear for most us, followed by the fear of death. If you’ve ever wanted to overcome your fear of speaking in front of a group, here is your chance to make it your New Year’s Resolution. Teach yourself and your children, the art of speaking with confidence and passion, in front of any audience - large or small. Why? Because studies show that those who speak clearly and articulately sound smarter, are more socially engaged, more confident, and ultimately more successful. “It is easier and faster than you think. It is all in the ‘tweaks’ of what you already know,” says my guest Jan Fox, 4-time Emmy Award Winner, Author, Speaker, and Coach. Join us on January 3, 6 PM East – 3 PM West, for her tips on how to teach yourself and your children the art of public speaking, even if you –the parents- are not completely comfortable with the idea.
