"Let's put people in the know about the power of every presentation opportunity,” said webinar speaker Kraig Kann, chief communications officer at LPGA. “Great speakers focus on outcome."

Excelling as a public speaker separates the superstars from the stars in the workplace. Captivating listeners at conferences, client meetings and internal meetings is a skill that can be taught, but unfortunately many people are so gripped by anxiety about public speaking that they are hesitant to learn how to do it right.

During this informational 90-minute webinar, attendees will become better public speakers, and learn how to better prepare for an upcoming speech overall by:

  •     Asking an event or meeting organizer the right questions before speaking in public
  •     Determining what the audience already knows, before a speech
  •     Relying on simple breathing exercises during jittery moments
  •     Quickly recovering after losing focus during a live speech or presentation
  •     Using personal storytelling to build rapport—without getting too personal
  •     Managing and respecting time constraints
  •     Preparing for the unknown, including difficult questions

This highly interactive seminar will allow for real-time Q&A’s to ensure specific questions are answered. To register for PR News’ “How to Conquer Your Public Speaking Anxiety” webinar on February 24, visit:
