Have you always been scared of addressing a group of people? Does the thought of walking up the stage and presenting make you feel nervous? If you feel nervous when the spotlight is on you, you’re not alone. Findings in surveys suggest that, for many people, our number one fear is of public speaking. In those same surveys fear of death comes third! How is it that so many people worry about being the centre of attention? For one reason, we live in a society where people are all too willing to criticise. Through the coaching sessions on presenting and communicating skills offered by Madeleine Morgan you can discover how to avoid the mistakes that could sabotage your presentation and learn the secrets of the master presenters. Then, you’ll be remembered for all the right reasons. We can even take a video of your presentation to help you improve.
Research shows that people make 11 judgements about us within the first 30 seconds of meeting us. It’s frustrating when, out of lack of confidence, you may stutter over your lines, become tongue tied, present yourself in a wooden way or fail to speak up. In many situations that negative impression can lose you the sale, a job opportunity, a chance to make a positive difference or cause you to be overlooked in favour of more confident, but less talented people. Even when you do manage to present yourself well, if you feel nervous inside it takes away much of the enjoyment of your success. It doesn’t have to be like this though!
