A recent survey showed that 74% of people admitted to being afraid of public speaking. So, chances are, you’re at least a little anxious about it, too, whether it’s to one person at a networking event or 100 people during a speech.
Unfortunately, while fear-inducing, it’s also an essential career skill. Being able to communicate your ideas to groups of all sizes is essential not only for landing a job, but for getting ahead in your current one.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with General Assembly to bring you a free class on how to overcome your fears of public speaking, use storytelling techniques in your communication, and become a master orator in no time.
