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.

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.

Whatever your nervousness profile may be, the fear of public speaking 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.
