"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

Natalie H. Rogers, MSW is recognized as a pioneer in the area of Public Speaking Phobia. She is the first communications expert to call serious attention to the devastating physical and emotional effects of fear of speaking in public.

Twenty years ago, Ms. Rogers realized that visualization and positive thinking could not significantly cure this condition. Arriving at a practical step-by-step solution through techniques similar to the way athletes are trained for major sporting events, Ms. Rogers developed an original muscle memory training program for enhancing concentration and focus. Participants develop the permanent skills necessary for thinking and speaking comfortably when facing an audience.

Former actress, acting teacher, and artistic director of the Dove Theater Company in New York, Ms. Rogers is a behavioral psychotherapist. She is the founder and president of TalkPower Inc., providing seminars and workshops internationally for companies such as IBM, Texaco, and American Express, as well as the United Nations. Her ground-breaking programs, detailed in her book The New TalkPower, have been published internationally in fourteen languages.

What differentiates Talk Power 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, intuitive methods for training people who need performance skills. Just as you cannot learn how to swim or ride a bicycle with video, advice, psychological explanations or visualizations, 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, Talk Power workshops have been offering original, systematic and repetitive exercises and drills that enhance concentration and significantly reduce anxiety.

"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 Talk Power enthusiastically and without any reservations. Thanks for introducing the world of public speaking to me."
