About Steven

I get it.

When surveyed, most people place 'fear of public speaking' above 'fear of death' on a list of things that scare them the most.

I understand. You know how to talk. You talk to people all the time. Whatever help you need with annunciation or organizing your thoughts to express them verbally - that's not the big issue.

Learning to speak to an audience with confidence is about more than learning to project your voice, or learning how to breathe from your abdomen. Learning to speak with confidence is less about learning to speak and more about gaining confidence.

No matter where you stand on the public-speaking-confidence-scale, whether you're in the 'abject-terror' or the 'shaky voice' category, you can learn to speak to groups at wedding receptions, meetings, presentations, or conferences.

Public speaking is built on self-confidence, and self-confidence can be exercised and strengthened much like your muscles.

Will we cover things like projecting, breathing, and how to work with a microphone? You bet. We'll cover those things because, when you master them, you gain confidence. But we won't stop there. We'll work on exercises that convince your conscious, and your subconscious, that public speaking is actually enjoyable.

You can get to a point where you look at public speaking as an opportunity to shine.

I can help you get there.

I was a speech major in college (big surprise, right?), but I've been reading at church since elementary school and I've addressed audiences of thousands of people at conventions in Las Vegas. And, yes, I still get butterflies. That's what makes me a good teacher. I'm not a natural. It's not a gift. It's a skill that can be learned, and if I can learn it, you can too.
