Hacking the Fear of Public Speaking
Does speaking publicly make your pulse race? We’ve got you. Whether it’s on a stage, in the boardroom or even at an Out Professionals event, public speaking anxiety is real--and for many LGBTQ+ speakers, years of self-judgment and self-editing make that anxiety more acute. But what would it be like to speak about your work from a place of greater authenticity and power? Eduardo Placer, Founder of Fearless Communicators will open your eyes to strategies that can help you gain confidence speaking in any public situation.
“According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number TWO. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”
— Jerry Seinfeld
