From Stage Fright to Spotlight: How One CEO Found His Voice
I work with CEOs to transform them into public speaking powerhouses. But when I met D, I wasn’t sure if I could help him.
He had to give a keynote to launch his new product. But he hated the idea of being on camera. Most of the leaders that I work with have an internal desire to speak in public. Not D.
He wanted nothing to do with it. But his marketing team was insistent that he needs to be the face of the company. So they brought me in.
In my first 1:1 with D, he told me his story. He became an entrepreneur and created his first product because of a problem he wanted to solve for his mom.
When I heard this, I was really excited. This sounded like a story that could really resonate with their audience.
So I talked to him to dig deeper: why did he not like the idea of speaking on camera?
