Do you possess a crippling fear of public speaking? Most people do. In fact, when surveyed a lot of people have said that they fear speaking in front of others in public more than they do death, which sounds silly but really speaks to the public speaking anxiety that most people have on a global scale. So whether you took public speaking courses in high school or college or you were even afraid to do that, you have answers now in the form of a public speaking coach.
The job of a public speaking coach is to teach you cool tricks on how to forget the audience is even there, how to stay on target as you look out into the audience as you make your speech and how to overcome every fear you have about speaking in public. The role of a public speaking coach too is to help you work through these fears through discussions with your coach. He will likely ask you a series of questions that may or may not have to do directly with your past experiences speaking in public. You may have some anxieties that you had no idea existed and now that are tied to your fear of speaking in public. Your public speaking coach, then, is tasked with breaking you out of your shell and giving you the confidence to present your speech in front of 10 or 10,000 and treat it in the very same way.
