We ALL have speaking anxiety. It hits each of us differently based on the situation, but we ALL feel it.
Some people use their speaking anxiety or nervousness to deliver amazing talks, presentations, and to speak up in a meeting with confidence.
However, for most people, speaking anxiety is a very real and debilitating emotion or phobia that keeps them from achieving more success in business and life they can ever imagine.
When it's your turn to speak, do you feel any of these symptoms?

Increased heart rate
Pounding heart
Butterflies in stomach
Tunnel vision
Shortness of breath
Dry mouth
Neck and shoulder tension
Cold clammy hands
Sweaty palms
Mind blanking out

If you answered Yes to one or more of these symptoms, consider yourself normal, alive, and someone who cares about what they are going to speak about. We ALL feel these symptoms to some degree. It's quite natural and it's actually an automatic response to the situation coming from deep within your brain.
Don't you feel a bit of anxiety just thinking about this?
If so, please join me at swissnex in San Francisco for a career up-leveling day at one of the most creative and memorable places in San Francisco. Here are some snaps of the workshop location:

Has this ever happened to you?
It’s time for your big presentation to the corporate executive team, and when you plug your computer into the projector, you accidentally project your search history full of job-search sites.
You’ve just been hired into an important role at a successful company, and 3 minutes into your first speech to the troops, someone falls asleep so hard that they get a concussion from the back of the seat in front of them.
It’s time for your big presentation to a key group of investors, and when you plug your computer into the projector, you accidentally project that chart accounting sent over that shows the company's profit line plummeting.
You’re sitting in an important meeting, and you know exactly what to say but your speaking anxiety holds you back from saying anything.
It’s the day of your big interview, and when you reach to shake the interviewer’s hand, you knock a mug of coffee into their lap.
It doesn’t have to be this way!
