Overcome Fear Of Public Speaking Workshop

In his latest "E-Book," Gordon Wallis of Visual Communication States, a company dedicated to providing non-verbal communication and sound techniques, gives the Overcome Fear of Public Speaking Workshop. If you're an average Joe or Jane who is still having trouble accepting the fact that they may have to speak in public, then I suggest you take this workshop.

First of all, I want to compliment Sean G. Gordon on his new e-book. This is one of the best I've ever come across on online communication. It's about five hundred pages long and it's well-written, easy to read, and comes with a free audio download of the same book.

That's great, but now the question becomes: what is this different concept from his earlier work? While overcoming fear of public speaking is very common, I don't think many people really understand the concept.

Many voice actors, for example, begin their careers as script writers. So if they don't want to act, they become a writer... and by the time they get to act, they don't believe they can do it.

Newbies can suffer from the same problems. If they don't want to move beyond the stage of a model or plain Jane and they know they're going to have to perform in front of an audience, they might choose to do that. They won't be ready, though, when the time comes to do it.

But don't worry - they'll learn. Eventually, they'll decide that they need to perform, and that they must be seen performing. The difference between them and the professionals, however, is that the pros will soon get used to doing it without the fear.

This type of speech production, called "performative speech," is considered by many to be the real act of speaking. If you want to avoid falling into the same traps that you see experienced speakers in front of an audience fall into, then you should learn how to overcome fear of public speaking.

A lot of your career is going to be spent rehearsing your speech and getting it ready, but eventually you're going to need to do it on the spot, as you are asked to. Remember that your voice needs to be high, clear, and absolutely believable. There are few people who will believe that you've been hit in the head, so be careful about what you say.

You've heard it all before: "I'm a freshman in college, and I'll be giving my final speech at graduation in two weeks. I need a powerful speech."

You don't need to be dramatic or "overly dramatic." All you need to do is provide a clear and concise message and tell it from the heart.

That's why speech playwrights and speeches in general are so common problems for lots of people. Most people don't have any problems believing that they can be extraordinary speakers.

Once you start to perform, and they get used to seeing you perform, it's not hard to overcome fear of public speaking, because you'll realize that you don't need to be extraordinary in speech production or in speaking in public. You only need to put your heart into it.
