Presenting With Confidence

Overcoming The Fear Of Presenting

Make Friends With Your Fear
Many people find giving a presentation difficult. Knowing what to say, if you can overcome the nerves, and what will be the audience response, can be tricky. Our hesitation may even grow into ‘fear’ where we allow this to stop us from expanding our opportunities and sharing our experience.

The fear is usually around external factors beyond our control. Many of these are external responses might never happen. If we think about all the 'what ifs' we are projecting ourselves into the future with worry and anxiety. If we worry about the past and the 'last time I presented', then we are staying stuck in the past and letting it take control of our 'now'. When we stay present with the now we are taking control of our internal responses. We can recognise our physical responses, identify our self talk and then adjust these to empower ourselves to stand tall and confidently present the information that we have prepared.

We deserve to be Authentic and to stand tall and be heard.

Take the pressure off yourself. Launch forth with confidence and overcome the fear. Step into your Authentic personal power and reap the benefits of magnificent possibilities!

I really enjoyed the course both the online component and the 3-day face-to-face workshop.

“The workshop was just a lot more interactive and there were some good practical exercises that I enjoyed. For example I took away lots of tips on exercises including stillness and active mindfulness – that will help me to implement breaks in my very busy life. I think that’s really important according to what I have been taught to prepare myself for that peak performance state. I thought it only applied to sports but in fact for myself to really think clearly and present the version of myself to the team. I really need to be in that state.”

Thanks for training me to become a confident speaker.

“It has been one of the most valuable knowledge and skills gained through my PhD candidature. I enjoy applying the concepts learned, such as mindfulness practices into academic presentations or all aspects of my life.”

The importance of being in action, not letting resistance and hesitations get in the way.

“It’s given me a lot of tools and information that I can research more and new ways to think and how I can put things into action. Knowing that I have the ability, the resources, and the inner wisdom to do these things with courage, is great. The importance of being in action, not letting resistance and hesitations get in the way, trusting my own gut and my wisdom, the importance of affirmation has been really reinforced for me. Authentic Leadership is not about being a leader as the official title but leading your own life.”
