Many of us have a fear of public speaking that prevents us from sharing our great ideas and experience, and even those who speak frequently admit that getting up in front of a room can still induce trembling hands and sweaty palms. While useless tips like imagining your audience in their underwear to banish nerves abound, in truth simple steps can be taken to help you survive and even thrive before a crowd. In a highly supportive and interactive environment, this workshop will explore the causes (and even potential benefits!) of stage fright, and discuss how to mitigate it through: Mindfulness and other stress reduction techniques The fear minimizing power of a well-crafted talk Techniques for public speaking After taking this workshop, you may still not actively court the limelight. But you will have the tools--and ideally newfound confidence--to transition from perpetual audience member to speaker on the stage.
