Rule the Room Public Speaking Coaches are equipped to walk you through the Rule The Room Public Speaking programs, help you discover your unique strengths, build your powerpoints and generally put your best foot forward.
What are the advantages of having a public speaking coach?
A public speaking coach helps you stand and deliver by answering your questions about what to expect, helping optimize your powerpoint (if using), easing your fears, helping you develop a plan, and generally getting you ready for the arrival of your “presentation baby.”
During presentation creation and delivery prep, a public speaking coach provides constant, knowledgeable support.
They can make suggestions about body position, help you with timing, and provide a sounding board for decision making.
Faced with some of the uncertainties of public speaking, many people find enormous reassurance in having a public speaking coach through the process. Research has found that people who have coaching support tend to have less anxiety and use medication less often.
People who have continuous support are also more likely to report being satisfied with their experience.
One theory is that people who have coaching support produce lower levels of stress hormones during their presentation than people going it alone or taking pointers from a book or friends.
