Author Carma Spence asked these questions of dozens and dozens of speakers and discovered the answer was, “Yes!”
Three out of every four people suffer from speech anxiety, and research suggests that people who don’t confront and overcome that fear are less successful in their careers and lives. However, people often look at successful speakers as superheroes with superpowers they, as mere mortals, could never possess.
Drawing from extensive research and interviews with business and professional speakers, Public Speaking Super Powers will show you how to:
↪ How to overcome the fear of speaking
↪ Develop the skills needed to be a success on the stage, such as storytelling and humor
↪ Master techniques like a superhero speaker, such as audience engagement, and using your voice, body language and eye contact effectively
and much more… There is even a bonus chapter on the business of speaking.
Unleash your inner Public Speaking Superhero and communicate your message with confidence starting today!
