Presenter: Trisha Griffin-Carty

Sound familiar? You know your material cold, but the idea of making a presentation brings waves of doubt and discomfort.
The White Knuckled Speaker is designed for anyone who wants to speak more confidently in one-on-one conversations or with large or small groups.

Specifically, those who attend will do the following:
- Review a model (research, write and practice) that works for every presentation
- Identify specific factors and symptoms associated with presentation anxiety
- Challenge internal negative statements as a way to reduce anxiety
- Develop a list of practical suggestions to reduce nervousness using planning and delivery tips
