Public speaking tops the list of people's greatest fears, according to recent polls. (Fear of snakes ranks second.) Expert Mary Anne Dorward offers relief with the launch of her new website, http://www.speakingtowin.com. Mary Anne has seen firsthand how fear prevents even the smartest professional from speaking to win.
In the past five years, Mary Anne Dorward has helped political candidates, sports celebrities, business and non-profit leaders conquer their fears and go on to deliver the most effective speeches of their lives.
"I've helped many people give powerful and winning presentations," says Dorward. "Great public speaking skills are essential to success, especially in tough economic times. You only get one chance to make that great first impression."
Speaking to Win provides one-on-one executive training, presentation skills workshops, and turn-key coaching services for business speakers, political figures, and non-profit professionals. "I've developed a comprehensive curriculum which includes techniques that have been tested and proven." says Dorward. "No one method works for everyone; each client is an individual with a personality and set of goals that are unique. I carefully tailor my methods to each client."
Dorward provides clients with a customized program designed to achieve their goals, including a full analysis of speaking styles, speech content, and target audiences. "I know firsthand how scary it is to speak in public. As a Broadway actress and signature voice for many national and international advertising campaigns over the years, I learned how to harness those unruly demon voices in my head. I've turned them from adversaries into allies. It's my greatest satisfaction to help others do the same."
