Conquering Fear of Public Speaking

Conquering The Fear Of Public Speaking

Challenge

The president of a powerful nonprofit had a terrible fear of public speaking. As president, she would need to host the organization’s upcoming gala fundraiser.

Solution

GPC helped draft a message to her target audience, coached her in presentation skills, rehearsed her finalized script until she felt confident that the words were truly her own and she exuded confidence.

Result

Her message was so personal, persuasive and charming that the organization’s goal—building a new museum in New York City to house its unparalleled collection of Spanish Art—is solidly on its way. She said, “I hear the comments that people make [about the success of her part in the gala] and a part of me still thinks they are talking about someone else.   At the same time, I can honestly say that I was not nervous and felt very calm and confident about it all; and that is to YOUR credit.”
