Workshop to Help Attendees Overcome Fear of 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 (a card-carrying introvert) 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 a workshop on June 8 titled “Nope, No Way, Never! How to Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking,” Fox shares 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 manage the fear of public speaking, develop a compelling story, navigate the three most important parts of a presentation, and win the crowd over. The free event will run from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the UMass Center at Springfield, 1500 Main St., Suite 260. To register, click here.
