Western Mass. Business Expo to Feature Program on Public Speaking
SPRINGFIELD — Have you ever been asked to present in front of a group of people and replied, “nope! No Way! Never!” Many charismatic speakers started out that way, and Thom Fox is one of them. Almost 20 years ago, Fox was shoved on a stage and told to “figure it out” — so he did. Since then, he has conducted more than 1,200 workshops and keynote addresses nationwide.
In an interactive workshop to be staged on the Show Floor Theater at the Western Mass. Business Expo on Oct. 29, Fox will share how he overcame shyness and gained the confidence to speak in front of more than 43,000 audience members throughout his career. Attendees will learn how to overcome the fear of speaking, develop a compelling story, navigate the three most important parts of a presentation, and incorporate strategies for winning the crowd over.
