Fear of Public Speaking

Speaking and leading with gravitas isn't easy. For starters, it's difficult for many to define. You can spend a long time searching and not make any progress. This is frustrating and time-consuming. While you're slowly feeling your way, the opposition is progressing quickly.

Course Overview

"Let Me Transform Your Public Speaking Fear Into New Confidence & Poise - In Just A Few Short Hours In London..."

- says "The Fear Doctor" Vince Stevenson, founder director of the College of Public Speaking which has helped over 10,000 people from 50+ countries to manage their fears and speak with confidence since 2006

Be honest now: when called upon to speak in public, how do you FEEL?

Scared? Paralysed? Shaky? Dry throat? Racing heartbeat? Profuse sweating?

Maybe even dizzy, short of breath, or thrown into a full-scale panic attack?

If so, let me assure you:

You are similar to the 10,000+ students, from 50+ countries who I've trained over the last 12 years to:

1) 'Reprogram' the natural fear they feel when asked to speak in public, and
2) Speak from a position of genuine, easy confidence and poise, using simple and immensely powerful techniques.

Question 1: What is critical for you to resolve right now?

Question 2: What's going to happen if you don't sort it out?

Course Summary

Join me in London for your choice of 1 or 2 days, and say goodbye to public speaking anxiety and self-doubt, like all these people before you...

As a founder director of the College of Public Speaking, it would be my pleasure to help you defeat fear and anxiety, and discover new confidence and poise...

My name is Vince Stevenson - otherwise known as 'The Fear Doctor' - and as a founder of the College of Public Speaking, I must tell you in all seriousness that if you're motivated to overcome your fear and enjoy life as a confident speaker, we have the skills to positively change your life.

Since 2006, we've helped thousands of people from organizations such as the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Buckingham Palace, BT, HSBC, Oxfam and many private individuals who realise the value of this critical skill.

And to remove any risk from your experience, our promise is that when you complete our unique speaking process and if you have not become an effective speaker, we offer you a 100% money-back guarantee.

What would your confidence, your career, your life look like in the next 12 months if you simply joined me for a day in London?

Here's the truth: your fear is nothing more than a bully that will melt away when properly confronted, leaving you free to enjoy the life and success you deserve...

Fear says others will laugh at you; that you're not good enough; that you're not worthy enough; that your speeches will flop and that you are a flop.

Fear says you cannot cope; that you lack preparation; you don't know what you're talking about and that nobody is interested anyway.

Fear tells you that your topic is boring and your points and examples are obvious and not worth saying.

And as a result, fear holds you back, blocks your path to success and prevents you from achieving your goals.

Good news - there is a solution! Simply join me on my next 'Fear of Public Speaking' course...

Fear is a bully and like most bullies, when properly confronted, its threat diminishes - leaving you free to enjoy the success you deserve.

You just need the correct strategies and techniques to overcome it.

And if you join me for just one day in a convenient and comfortable central London location I'll show you them, including:

  • How to build or rebuild your self-confidence
  • How to focus nervous energy on positive outcomes
  • The key to opening your speech with impact and confidence
  • Breathing techniques that help you remain calm
  • A 6-point checklist to help you speak with confidence
  • Developing your 'Base of Certainty'
  • Tapping into your personality, creativity and authenticity
  • Practising correct posture, breathing and relaxation
  • Building confidence through interactive group exercises

You'll get a unique understanding of the fear of public speaking - and a bag of effective tools and techniques for future use. 

Like all of our professional classes, our Fear of Public Speaking course is accredited by CIMA, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants. CIMA's parent group Pearson is the world's largest private educational concern.

What's the difference between the one and two-day course?

On the 2 day course, you get an extra day's speech practise, expert feedback and exposure to mindset techniques.

The 1 day is a great course and it's high paced. The 2 day is a bit more relaxed as we have more time to explore each individual's issues.

Class sizes & times:

Our class sizes (for fear) range from 4 to 12 people which allows everybody sufficient time for individual speeches and feedback.

Courses start at 9:30 and end at 5 pm. 45 minutes for lunch. It's a fun and intensive day.

In summary:

Specialist trainers: friendly, qualified and empathetic

Quality and easily accessible venues at Kings Cross and Holborn, London

Outstanding outcomes

Question 1: What is critical for you to resolve right now?

Testimonials

  • 'Hi Vince, I am already lining up some public speaking events one of which might be to seventy people. I am not frightened at all now. Previously I would have died a thousand slow deaths of anxiety and nervousness which could well have resulted in a panic attack on stage. Now I can't wait. I'm proud to announce that I can do it. Who would have thought it from a two day weekend session?'
    Simon Smith - Northolt
  • 'Dear Vince, Today I did my first major public speaking since attending your course a few weeks back. I did an assembly in front of 150 pupils and then staff training at the end of the day. I'm pleased to say that I paused, didn't get nervous and spoke so fluently. All day, I've had kids approach me and thank me for the assembly. One even said he found it "inspirational". 'I can only really thank you for this. I took all of your advice, reviewed the speeches and read your book since the course. I feel so much better now and truly believe that I can do this. Thank you so much and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!'
