Overcoming Fear of Public Speaking: CTRN Cracks Worst Cases Fast
Fear of public speaking is still one of the most debilitating phobias.
But for decades, safe techniques that allow accelerated 're-tuning' of an
individual's response to performing in public have been helping people
from all walks of life to happily speak in public.
New York, NY - October 26, 2010 -- Effective public speaking is a
critical communication skill in business, not only for large
presentations, but also internal meetings with as few as 2-3 people. But
when fear of speaking strikes - a majority of adults fear public speaking
more than death itself - the results can be disastrous: lost business,
missed promotions, job loss and low self-esteem.
"CTRN provides one of the best solution to extreme fear when speaking in
front of others," says Seymour Segnit, founder and president of CTRN:
Change That's Right Now. "Everyone thinks the problem is public speaking,
but it's not. It is the fearful response that needs to be changed."
Help for fear of public speaking is offered by many organizations, but
typically focuses on developing speaking skills rather than addressing
the root cause of the problem: the mistaken neurological association that
has been formed between speaking and fear.
Organizations such as Toastmasters have helped thousands to build
confidence through practice, practice, practice. And CTRN also provides a
series of video tips at http://ConfidentlySpeaking.com or on YouTube at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5zO7J90D8o . But for the most serious
cases, or those who need to be up and speaking quickly, CTRN's audio and
one-on-one programs offer a fast and highly effective method of breaking
the link between speaking and fear.
"I was having a rough time with public speaking, which you have to do
plenty of in my line of work, if you hope to get anywhere," comments
Peter Moore, Editor in Chief, Men's Health Magazine. "About one month
after I met with [CTRN], I flew to London and was the high-pressure
opening act in an international conference of Men's Health foreign
editions. And I did well enough so that I could move on to do a lot of
radio and TV interviews for the magazine. Now I actually enjoy them."
"We're thrilled that Peter's experience is an every-day result for us,"
says Segnit. "Our clients love the results they get with these programs -
when the fear is gone, it's like getting a new lease on their careers,
and on life."
CTRN offers two approaches to getting over speaking fear:
1: The 'VIP' program is a short series of intensive sessions with a
specially trained practitioner who directs clients quickly through the
2: 'Vanquish Fear Anxiety' is a program available on CDs (or via
download) that includes many of the same techniques used by the VIP
program practitioners, but at a significantly lower cost.
"Overcoming fear of public speaking is actually remarkably simple," says
Segnit. "All it needs is for the individual to be committed to overcoming
the fear, and they quickly learn to eliminate the patterns of thinking
that were triggering those awful feelings."
