Training for public appearances makes speaking in front of people fun

Be confident appearing in public – feel good – speak easily

A coach once said to me “The stage is the mirror of self-worth”

That is how it feels. I have experienced this myself and seen it in many other people. Being in the spotlight stresses most people and, according to studies, the fear of standing in front of others and talking, counts as one of the biggest of them.

People try to support themselves by using diverse methods, either alone or with a trainer or both. They often so want to get over their fear of being on stage, presenting, speaking in public that they push the fear away “Not allowed! Not now!” That can function, but it takes an enormous effort and a lot of energy. Furthermore, it is definitely not sustainable and it also is no fun.

And it should be. Definitely! Because your knowledge is only as good as your ability to bring it across to others: in talks, on stage, in a round table, in front of the camera. And how should you know if your audience does not like your appearance, or your voice, or your style of interacting? You can only find out if you try it out.

This is exactly where the coaching for public appearances training from ANNÉ SCHWARZKOPF COMMUNICATIONS comes into play. In our training COACHING FOR COMMUNICATIONS you will learn how to feel good before, during and after your appearance. We support you in speaking, so that your valuable subject matter reaches your audience.
