"There's no such thing as 'public' speaking, only speaking," asserts author, guest speaker, and executive speech coach Matthew Cossolotto. Matthew shares over a quarter-century of experience in his new book, All The World's A Podium: Unleash Your Authentic Podium Power and Speak Your Way To The Peak.

I recommend (Matthew's) new book and his coaching programs to any executive looking to enhance his or her podium power.

    He says the self-imposed feelings of fear, intimidation, and anxiety that hamper the public speaking performance of millions of people can be overcome through five simple mind-set shifts.

"We speak with complete comfort to people all the time," Matthew says. "Once you begin to give speeches as if you're having a conversation with your best friend, you'll be speaking from your personal comfort zone of authentic speaking. Many people hold themselves back from achieving their full potential because of self-imposed fears about public speaking. I want to change all that by bringing Podium Power to the People."

Having worked closely with corporate titans and Capitol Hill heavyweights like former Speaker of the House Jim Wright and Congressman Leon Panetta -- who later became White House Chief of Staff for President Bill Clinton -- Matthew now shares his insights about how others can enhance their "podium power" and develop and deliver compelling presentations.

"If the thought of speaking in front of a crowd of people gives you the willies, Matthew Cossolotto's All The World's A Podium is the right medicine for you--a healthier and more effective alternative to a stiff drink, a security blanket, and a bottle of Valium."
