Weekly BUZZ- Overcome Fear of Speaking

Welcome to this week at The Hive RI!  

Thursday’s Lunch & Learn

3 Proven Steps to Overcome Your Fear of Speaking:

We are all pretty comfortable talking to people we know. It’s usually the fear of the unknown that we hesitate to face; and few things are more scary than people we don’t know. Specially people that we are going to want to sell to. Whether it’s a product or a service, we fear rejection or just looking silly.

Many of us are trapped behind the hesitation and downright fear that can prevent us from stepping up. That holds us back from doing what we know we need to do to grow our business. That makes it impossible to come out from under the shadow of fear that keeps us from the success that we deserve.

The presenter is Richard Austin:

Rich Austin is president and founder of Speaking of Success, LLC. He has taught and coached business people, entrepreneurs, and students in the art of public speaking. As a life-long stutterer, Rich understands better than most, the fear of approaching new people and engaging them in conversation.

Rich has trained thousands of people here in the U.S. and in Europe. Over many years of public speaking and training, Rich has developed a proven approach to verbal engagement that makes people listen to what you say, understand what you do, and appreciate who you are.
