What differentiates Talkpower from all the other Public Speaking programs?

Most public speaking teachers are academics, or they have been trained by academics. This means that they deal with intellectual information like facts and observation and not with skills training. Ms. Rogers is an actress and a behavioral psychotherapist. She has developed practical and intuitive methods for training people who need performance skills. Just as you cannot learn how to swim or ride a bicycle with video, advice, visualizations or psychological explanations, you cannot learn how to hold on to your concentration when you face an audience with these techniques. Rather you need practical, hands-on training procedures. For twenty years, Talkpower Workshops have been offering original, systematic and repetitive exercises and drills that enhance concentration and significantly reduce anxiety. No matter how anxious or avoidant you are, we guarantee that a Talkpower two full day workshop will train you on a muscle memory level to feel comfortable in your own skin when you speak in public. Our approach is truly for everyone – just listen to the comments from workshop participants.

"Natalie H. Rogers offers a different approach to treating the fear of public speaking."

— Daniel Goleman, New York Times

If you avoid speaking in public because of:

  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Intense anxiety
  • Memory loss
  • Rapid speech
  • Shaky voice
  • Trembling
  • Nervousness in stomach
  • Panic attacks
  • Tension in chest
  • Hyperventilation
  • Feeling faint
  • Anticipatory anxiety
  • Feelings of humiliation
  • Loss of control

Twenty years ago, Natalie H. Rogers, MSW, discovered that visualization, positive thinking, and seeing oneself on video could not significantly eliminate public speaking phobia. She realized that the problem is not about your material, your body language, or knowing your audience. The problem is about YOU standing in front of people who are LOOKING AT YOU.

With our simple and practical step-by-step method of mind/body training exercises for concentration and focus, you will stop thinking about what the audience thinks of you. We will help you to transform your loss of concentration into fluid public-speaking skills. Comparable to the systematic training athletes receive when preparing for competitive events, Natalie Rogers has designed this unique program synthesizing neuroscience, behavior modification, correct breathing, acting techniques, speech crafting, leadership training, and self-esteem training.

"Natalie and her assistants were spectacular in providing 'hands on' techniques and a step-by-step approach to master the fear of public speaking. I am confident that this training will significantly impact my ability to do formal presentations with greater ease and finesse. My anxiety has already diminished dramatically."

This program is remarkably effective for people who avoid speaking before groups or participating at meetings, conferences, in classrooms, making toasts, asking questions, at job interviews, or any other performance situations, because of intense anxiety.

A ratio of 10 participants to one instructor in a safe and supportive setting sets the stage for a transformative training experience. This approach is structured, systematic, and safe, and boasts a 95% success rate.

"I have already received my original investment back three times over with the three keynote speeches that I have made. My confidence is building with each speech and my stage fright has almost disappeared. I recommend TalkPower enthusiastically and without any reservations. Thanks for introducing the world of public speaking to me."
