Speak Without Fear

Ivy's Total System for Becoming a Natural, Confident Communicator

Speak Without Fear aids the millions of Americans who list fear of public speaking as one of their biggest -- along with going to the dentist, being audited, and attending a funeral. It combats performance anxiety in everyday business situations -- meetings, presentations, interviews, reviews and sales conferences. Public speaking skills can be learned and honed and many books cover this topic. However, Speak Without Fear delves beyond external techniques and probes deeply into the reason for your performance anxiety.

Are you an Avoider, Anticipator, Adrenalizer or Improviser when it comes to making a presentation, going on a job interview or speaking before a large audience? Whatever your nervousness profile may be, fear has taken over and disabled you from giving an effective, well-executed performance.  Speak Without Fear will help you with overcoming fear of public speaking.  You're not alone.
