More than death, more than snakes or spiders or falling from a terrific height, people fear Public Speaking. Multiple surveys call it "America's #1 fear".

- Standing up in front of a jury is public speaking.
- Selling pharmaceuticals to doctors is public speaking.
- So is reporting to a board of directors, explaining a new initiative to stockholders, introducing a new product, sharing information with colleagues.

Grounded confidence is immediately sensed by an audience as is discomfort or nervousness. Neuroscience suggests you've lost your advantage right then and there. Experience proves it.

Confidentiality - One singular skill is mandatory when dealing with any information shared by companies, lawyers, doctors or government agencies.

It means that you have been entrusted with critical information and long after a project is done, even years past an end-date to an agreement, she believes one is honor-bound to never discuss it. Ever.
