Speaking with Confidence

Speaking with Confidence

by Nick Gold


Glossophobia, or the fear of public speaking, affects up to 75% of the population. But like all fears, this too can be overcome. Speaking in front of crowds with confidence is about harnessing your anxiety, preparing properly, and believing in what you're saying. It also helps to tell a story so that you can engage with your audience and leave a lasting impact.

Nick Gold is the managing director of Speakers Corner and founder of the speaker management business Speaking Office.

In his book, he uses his expertise to support people in overcoming the fears and barriers that stop them from developing their talent for public speaking.
