Yes, you can learn to love the spotlight.
Why do some of us gladly step forward while others shy away from public speaking, despite having something to say? If you’ve ever watched others take the stage—at conferences, in meetings, or even at your sister’s wedding—and yearned for the confidence to do the same—you can.
In this transformational guide, speaking coach Linda Ugelow delivers a holistic methodology that gets to the root of what’s stopping you from sharing your voice. Through powerful exercises and real-life stories of conquering performance nerves (including her own), Ugelow tells you how to free yourself from the anxieties and psychological roadblocks that are holding you back, and actually learn to enjoy the limelight. You’ll also learn exactly how to effectively prepare for speaking opportunities; how to memorize effectively; how to finally eliminate your use of filler words (like “um” or “right?”); and how to smoothly navigate slip-ups in front of an audience.
This isn’t an audiobook about “feeling the fear and doing it anyway,” it’s about shedding that fear, loving yourself, and embracing opportunities to shine brightly. Whether your audience is online, in the boardroom, in a theatre, or in the workplace, your journey to full self-expression begins here.
