Would you Like to be a Public Speaker for Susan G. Komen?

I heard once that most  people feared public speaking more than they feared death. Is it about vulnerability? The fear of looking foolish? If we can speak to one person, why can't we speak to six or six hundred?. Is it that there are strangers in the audience? Would we be less afraid if everyone in the audience was a friend or a family member and thus would be more forgiving?

This I do know, if you face your fears often enough, they shrink in size and become manageable. So, if you're fearful of an audience hanging on your every word, I have an offer you shouldn't refuse. Become a voice for Susan G. Komen. Learn to speak to groups of people about the importance of early detection of cancers, and explain why supporting Komen will lead to a cure.  And in the process, battle your own fear of public speaking.

On August 13, 2011, the LA County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen will hold a training session on how to stand up and be heard on the important issues concerning breast health. Be a vocal advocate for a disease that devastates women and their families in frightening numbers.

Comment on this post and I will respond with the details of where the training session will be held.

  1. I will be a three year survivor May24, 2013. I have had a true struggle with acceptance and self image. Breast cancer changed my life in so many ways.
    I would love to share my story in the hopes that more women will take excitereness and early detection seriously..
    I've had the opportunity to speak at the Virginia Tech / Carilion School of Medicine about the emotional aspects of breast cancer. I enjoy helping others who have had to alter their bodies in order to save their lives.
    Im excited also to read your book.
