Public speaking fear

“I have experienced public speaking fear and trembling every time I have had to deliver an academic lecture. Herman’s Public Speaking seminar changed all that. Herman’s presentation addressed the psychological underpinnings of fear of speaking and was followed by practical exercises where each member stood up in front of the group to practice each new skill. We not only learned to be calm and composed while speaking before a group – Herman made it fun.”
