Recent epidemiologic studies have revealed that social phobia is more prevalent than has been previously believed.
An unresolved issue is the extent to which public-speaking fears constitute a recognizable form of social phobia in a community sample and, moreover, to what extent these fears are associated with functional morbidity.
Even if you don’t need to make regular presentations in front of a group, there are plenty of situations where good public speaking skills can help you advance your career and create opportunities.
Public speaking includes:
• Talking about your organization at a conference
• Making a speech after accepting an award
• Teaching a class to new recruits.
• Online presentations or talks
• Training a virtual team
• Speaking to a group in an online meeting
Good public speaking skills are important in other areas of your life, as well. You might be asked to make a speech at a friend’s wedding, give a eulogy for a loved one, or inspire a group of volunteers at a charity event.
Being a good public speaker can enhance your reputation, boost your self-confidence , and open up countless opportunities.
While good skills can open doors, poor ones can close them. Your boss might decide against promoting you after sitting through a badly-delivered presentation. You might lose a valuable new contract by failing to connect with a prospect during a sales pitch. Or you could make a poor impression with your new team, because you trip over your words and don’t look people in the eye.
We will give you the confidence to speak well!
