The best way to overcome the anxiety of public speaking is to prepare, prepare, and prepare some more.
Start with FRMedia Train first – we’re here to help – and we’ll give you the strategy and confidence to succeed! 

 
The first time I ever spoke to a group of more than a dozen people it felt like being in front of a stadium full of the other team’s fans! I didn’t exactly hear boos but nervous doesn’t begin to describe it – and I was sure everyone out there in the audience could notice! 
The funny thing was, at the time I had already done hundreds of television reports in my career and never felt as shaky. Turns out it ALWAYS feels worse than it is.. or looks.. as the audience that day confirmed. The key? I was as prepared for that speech as I was for all those TV reports.
At FRMediaTrain we have used that personal experience along with years of practice and study to ease the anxiety of public speaking.
After one session in our presentation training program we will have you giving press conferences, speeches, group talks and business presentations as if you’ve been doing it for years. Think of it this way: YOU’RE the expert – who better than YOU to give that presentation?!
Just like our media training and crisis communications programs, our presentation training involves tools, tips and tactics you can draw on for every appearance. And you WILL learn how to practice them, you WILL learn to be prepared, to fight those nerves, entertain, inform and persuade your audience. Even if there’s no way you ever think you’ll get up on that stage, give us a call. We can help! Below are just a few more focused areas of our presentation training.

Mix and Match Media Training Services

All of these Brand Media Training components can be paired with other aspects of our training programs, such as Brand Media Training orCrisis Communications Training. Remember, our courses are tailor-made to YOUR business. After a free consultation where we can talk about all the options, you can decide what type of media training would best fit you and your employees. For instance:
  • We recently trained a lawyer in a 3 hour one-on-one setting so that he could appear as a legal expert on network television talk shows. His program emphasized message development and how to make his delivery both informative AND entertaining.
  • We also trained a group of eight sales and marketing professionals before their work in a company booth at a recent convention. Their program specialized in brand promotion and answering tough questions. 

Put simply, we’re here to help your business communicate better –
