Franklin, MI – Mark Twain famously said, “There are two types of public speakers: those who are nervous and those who are liars.” Indeed, public speaking is considered the greatest fear a person can have, even greater than the fear of death! This fear can prevent people from discovering and using their unique voice, from speaking their truth and reaching their personal and business goals.
Speaking, message and marketing mentor Marjorie Saulson is the founder of Vibrant Vocal Power, a coaching practice dedicated to helping individuals who are nervous about public speaking, to develop their messages, acquire powerful presentation skills, and overcome their fears. Known as “The Show Up, Speak Up, Stand Out and Succeed Specialist,” Marjorie guides fearful speakers to feel comfortable in any speaking situation.
“Vibrant Vocal Power is about empowering ourselves through the power of our voice, our message and sharing our gifts with the world,” says Marjorie.
Most people are afraid to speak in public, but that fear is not limited to speeches on stage. Marjorie also works with people who are afraid to speak up in a meeting or attend a networking event. Some people are even afraid to pick up the phone.
“I believe public speaking is any time you talk to someone other than yourself,” says Marjorie. “It’s important for your message to be engaging, understandable and digestible.”
According to Marjorie, overcoming fear of public speaking is about overcoming fear of criticism, fear of rejection and fear of failure, and she offers specific strategies that will reduce your anxiety.
