“I read a thing that actually says that speaking in front of a crowd is considered the number one fear of the average person. I found that amazing – number two was death! That means to the average person if you have to be at a funeral, you would rather be in the casket than doing the eulogy.”
We’ve all been there: clammy hands, dry mouth, a nervous quiver. Public speaking can be one of the most intimidating activities of our personal and professional lives — but it doesn’t have to be. Join Chicago Taiwanese American Professionals for our inaugural ongoing workshop on public speaking!
The format of the workshop will be similar to that of Toastmasters, a non-profit organization with over 230,000 members worldwide. You’ll get a chance to refine and practice your public speaking among a supportive group of people all fighting to achieve the same goal. Members will critique each other with instant and anonymous feedback to help everyone improve.
Don’t let a fear of public speaking hold you back in your life and your career! Conquer it.
