Make 2015 your year to shine on a public platform by attending PR News’ Feb. 24 webinar, "How to Conquer Your Public Speaking Anxiety." Our team of public speaking experts will share with you practical tips and exercises to help you manage your fear of appearing nervous while speaking before an audience, calm yourself in the moment when you’re delivering a speech or presentation, recognize when you’re unprepared in advance of a planned speech or public talk and—most important—learn from your mistakes.

Experts from the LPGA, Goodwill Industries International and Communications Works will focus on:
  • Asking an event or meeting organizer the right questions before speaking in public
  • Knowing when you’ve prepared enough in advance of a scheduled talk
  • Determining what your audience already knows, before you speak
  • Confining your speech or presentation to what you what your audience to learn
  • Using numbers to organize your key messages
  • Relying on simple breathing exercises during jittery moments
  • Quickly recovering when you’ve lost focus during a live speech or presentation
  • Using personal storytelling to build rapport—without getting too personal
  • Managing and respect time constraints
  • Preparing for the unknown, including difficult questions
  • Succeeding as a public speaker despite inherent nervousness
  • Making positive use of negative feedback
Excelling as a public speaker separates the superstars from the stars in the workplace. Captivating listeners at conferences, client meetings and internal meetings is a skill that can be taught, but unfortunately many people are so gripped by anxiety about public speaking that they are hesitant to learn how to do it right. In particular, professional communicators who seek to enhance their personal brand must compete against peers who perennially get invited to speak at conferences, lead client pitches, get interviewed on news programs and capture the ear of the CEO.
