Overcoming fear and finding your voice

In my previous post I mentioned that the solution to anxiety about public speaking is not medication, but rather preparation and practice.

Yesterday’s Times (UK) provides an excellent example. One of their columnists, Sathnam Sanghera, discusses how although he is Not Wolverhampton’s Answer to Barack Obama…at age 32 he is finding a voice. He describes how some coaching finally helped him become comfortable at speaking to large groups.

Mr. Sanghera is a journalist who grew up in Wolverhampton. He has written a book along with numerous articles and columns. You can find a brief biography here on his web site, and a review of his book here.
