It's ironic, I am scared to death of Public Speaking, yet I write about it and teach it.

Background Information

After "freezing" during my first professional speech--it was so embarassing--I avoided all forms of public speaking (even in small department meetings) for the next 16 years; thus, losing out on better jobs, positions, wages, and opportunities. I don't want it to happen to anyone else, so my mission in life is to help others manage the fear of public speaking, and to increase self confidence by knowing how to give fabulous presentations. This will lead to better jobs, dream jobs, pay raises, notoriety, prestige, and better communities. And for students--better grades.

Birth Place
Spokane, WA USA

My performance isn't important, meeting the needs of the audience is most important. My credentials are Master's Degree in Communication (Eastern Washington University), College Speech Communication Instructor 10 years, and author of many speeches, training workshops, seminars, and two books on managing the fear of public speaking

Additional Information

In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I have started a small business to sell my books and workshops. Also, my website has useful content for folks to have the basics of speech writing and presntation delivery. I have also written user friendly workbooks to help folk write their own Best Man Speech and Maid of Honor Speech. Currently I am working on two projects: a workbook for writing the Eulogy (Words of Praise) and a Book called Exertion of Influence: a guide to leadership development.
