Control your nerves and stage fright


Gain confidence, clarity and charisma! This workshop is designed for technical, sales and international business speakers. If you have not received face-to-face presentation training or feel nervous when public speaking, this is the course for you!

First, you'll receive tools to manage your public speaking nerves. Then, we'll go through a 5-step process to help you develop engaging presentations, that are easy-to-present. With just 5 attendees, you'll be able to practice, receive personal coaching, and improve your skills. We video your practice sessions to help you build on your strengths and find your personal style.  

You'll be trained by Kimberly VanLandingham, CEO of European Market Link Sàrl. She has over 12 years of public speaking training experience and 20 years of corporate management experience, including speaking on TV/radio, at large events, and as a keynote speaker. She has also been a trainer for TEDx events. Kimberly has degrees in communications (MACCC) and engineering (BSEE). She is a native English speaker and specialises in helping international and analytical speakers. And, she loves helping nervous speakers build their confidence.

Zsolt Pinter, public speaking

Thank you very much for all your great support regarding my presentation yesterday. It went really well. Actually, I felt even more confident than during the rehearsals. And, by going through this training as a team, sharing our vulnerabilities and growing confidence together, it created a powerful bound and trust between us. Thank you again for this great journey, which made me feel happy and proud.”Zsolt Pinter, Senior Director Finance Systems (from a major global hotel chain)
