Speak With Confidence and Power!
Does the idea of speaking to a group of people fill you with dread?
Do you know what you want to say, but somehow it never comes out the way you want?
Do you feel "left behind" in your career — or in life — because of poor speaking skills?
Are you eager to strengthen your speaking skills... but you don't know how to go about it?
Then you need to work out at the gym... but not just any gym. You need Speaker Gym!
Speaker Gym is a free podcast chock-full of useful suggestions (and a few dire warnings), tips, techniques, insights, general guidance, and much, much more.
But Speaker Gym is more than a simple podcast. While you're listening to an episode on your phone, you can tap the "message" button and ask a question, and I'll answer your question in an upcoming episode! So Speaker Gym isn't just a podcast, it's a dialogue between me and you! (Note: "message" is only available when you're listening to Speaker Gym on your smartphone using the Anchor app.)
But wait, there's more!
Speaker Gym is also a website (you're looking at it right now), and on the website I'll offer suggestions and guidance that don't necessarily lend themselves to an audio podcast.
In today's communication-dependent world, good presentation skills are no longer good enough. Your presentation skills need to be top-notch, the best that they can be. You need Speaker Gym.
