Mastering the Art of Fearless Public Speaking: A Neuro-scientific Approach for Authentic Connection and Lasting Impact

Presented by: Michelle Anne

The Fear of Public Speaking is Worse Than the Fear of Death.
Add flight delays, rental car lines, lost luggage, stage freight, difficult audiences, bright lights and the unpredictable ebb and flow of gigs that comes with being a public speaker and you wonder why we do it. We continually traverse the perfect stress storm that impacts your memory retrieval, stage presence, delivery, self-perception and self-evaluation of a job well done or poorly done.The fear of public speaking is the most common phobia ahead of death, spiders, or heights (The National Institute of Mental Health). The underlying fear is judgment or negative evaluation by others. Public speaking anxiety is considered a social anxiety disorder.

Meet Michelle Anne. Keynote Speaker, Neuroscientist, Guru, and Master in Overcoming Stress. Michelle’s solution cuts right to the core, helping you get out of your own way. Michelle introduces a perspective unknown to many, that induces a paradigm shift. Her solution is linked to reduced stress (reduces cortisol), increased authenticity & connection (increases oxytocin) and promotes sustained learning (leaving a mutually rewarding and memorable experience). Michelle’s solution changes your brains response to stress for good. Michelle artistically integrates neuropsychology with Eastern philosophy to reveal the wisdom beneath the surface. Leave feeling lighter and with the wisdom to deliver more intelligent fun and rewarding presentations — no matter who the audience. These invaluable tools have the power to shift your outlook immediately.

You will learn:

  • How to shift from stress to relaxation on demand
  • How to increase authenticity and connection
  • Key players in the brain’s stress response
  • One-step behavior change process
  • How to induce positive contagion in others
