A short but action packed workshop to deal with your fear of public speaking.

About this event

Fear of public speaking is one of the most common things I hear from my clients. My Masters thesis was on this very subject and I have many exercises and techniques which can help you overcome it. This is the first step towards becoming a confident and successful public speaker, whether you're addressing hundreds of people in a ballroom, a small group around a board room table or (like so many of us now) on a virtual screen.

-includes a document of all exercises and techniques used

-a discount of 50% off your first hour of individual coaching (value $150)

Organizer Alyson Connolly

Organizer of Fighting the Fear of Public Speaking

I have been a performer all my life and a teacher for the last thirty years in Edmonton. I know what it’s like to stand on stage in front of an audience and perform. I also know what it’s like to be afraid to perform.

I started out as a child actor, in the first musical that CTV ever produced: The Magic Trumpet. I pursued a BFA in Acting at the University of Alberta.  I spent ten years as a professional actor, and began teaching during this time. In 2012, I returned to school in the Masters in Theatre Voice Pedagogy program at the University of Alberta.

My master’s thesis was on Performance Anxiety in Public Presenters.  For two years I was immersed in courses as varied as Speech Science to research papers on the plasticity of the brain and the breath techniques of professional actors. It gave me a more complete understanding of the things that influence our voice, speech and presentation.

I’m inspired by the impact of a powerful presentation. I’m excited about helping people find their voice and the joy of speaking in front of others.
