Book of the month: Goodbye Glossophobia – A guide to banish your fear of public speaking

Jan 12 2020

Public speaking advisor Esther Stanhope advises her audience on effective communication and how to succeed in your job in her thought-provoking self-help book, Goodbye Glossophobia – A guide to banish your fear of public speaking.

It is certain that everyone has had to speak in front of a group at some point in their life. Whether this is in front of ten or ten thousand people, it can be equally terrifying for everyone. I’m sure almost everyone has had a moment whilst on stage, you gaze out across the audience and become engulfed by the fact that hundreds of pairs of eyes are fixed on you. Overwhelmed, you then begin to stumble, your speech is ruined, and you’re humiliated. Stanhope’s polished information guide provides a clear insight into not only why we have such a fear of public speaking, but also what we can do to (as she puts it) ‘own’ our fears and transform into much more confident public speakers.
