Do you suffer from a fear of public speaking?

If your answer is yes, you aren’t alone! In fact, approximately 25% of the population suffer from a fear of public speaking (Wuench, 2021).

On my podcast, Garry’s Shortlist, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sean Tyler Foley - author, international business advisor and speaker who helps clients transform into captivating, confident speakers.

In particular, we discuss his book ‘The Power to Speak Naked: How to Speak with Confidence, Communicate Effectively, and Win Your Audience.’ Don’t fear, you aren’t expected to become the next Tony Robbins! Rather, the book is designed to help individuals share their message with confidence, whether it be in a meeting with stakeholders, clients or your own team.

Here are Sean’s three key takeaways for a great presentation:

  1. Think of yourself as a FACILITATOR of conversation as opposed to a deliverer of information
  2. The topic your afraid to discuss is probably what your audience needs to hear the MOST
  3. Encourage and invite participation

I would like to leave you with a reminder from Sean. As a presenter, aim to be AUTHENTIC and natural over perfect - an important point that applies beyond the business landscape.
