Disclaimer: I don't promise any magic pill, potion, button, breathing exercises, yoga, warm up, stretch, relaxation, visualization, meditation, sacrifice or guru nonsense that is going to get rid of your nervousness. That's why wine was invented.
What I DO promise is teaching how to emotionally connect with people using the unique blend of advanced skills I have gained over my 30+ years career in media, advertising, and filmmaking.
I do that utilizing this course, Keynotes and other programs. Just contact me.
