Did you know that the greatest fear that people have is the fear of public speaking? For some people it is so traumatic that they cease to function, and everything shuts down.
Well, let me flip that thinking for a moment and explain the feeling of absolute joy that you get when you nail a presentation. When you said what you wanted to say, and people took the message on board and left with ideas and concepts on how to be more effective in life.
It truly is an amazing feeling!
It doesn’t mean that you don’t experience fear, in fact I would be worried if you didn’t, it is just the realisation that the message is far more important than those fears and breaking through that fear is where our strength is found.
The wonderful thing is that this feeling of achievement and joy is not for a select few, it is on offer to every one of us if we are prepared to put the work in to make it happen.
It’s not about getting everyone to agree with us, it is about being brave enough to communicate what you really believe and bringing hope to those who are listening.
Every leader of the future must be able to communicate effectively and must be bold enough to deliver it as effectively as they can.
It is an amazing experience when we experience the joy of presenting rather than just the fear, and every one of us has the opportunity to do that if we are prepared to go the extra mile.
Take a look at our Leadership Speak program if you are interested in developing these very important skills.

What people are saying about Leadership Speak program:
“Incredible program. So practical. I felt myself improve hugely as a presenter over the 2 days. It was challenging and confronting but still enjoyable.”
Roxanne Ewing - Cromwell Property Group
“The Leadership Speak program demonstrated to me the power of first impressions, body language and framing messages to engage and give clarity around your objective. But more, it challenged me to put it into practice, time and time again, and the feedback from the presenters and my program colleagues was invaluable.”
Narelle Peach - University Of Southern Queensland
“One of the best professional development courses I have attended. Even though I find speaking in public extremely challenging, the course gave me tools & information I can use to craft exceptional presentations.”
