Podcast Episode 15 – With Brenden Kumarasamy

How to Overcome the Fear of Public Speaking

July 6, 2022

Overcoming the fear of public speaking requires a deep understanding of two basic concepts; where it comes from and how to fix it. Whether someone went to college or university, many presentation skills were taught in school. However, this training created three problems. The presentations were mandatory, different from others,  and were tied to punishment. Such scenarios reinforced a bad communication reputation, which is why we will always have fear in presentations. Join this conversation where Brenden Kumarasamy joins me and learn about how you can fix it.
