You’ve got big ideas to share.
A message burning inside of you.
Although you’re a great one-on-one conversationalist, the thought of a room full of eyes on you puts a lump in your throat, a quiver in your voice and turns all of those well-thought out ideas into a jumbled mess.
Public speaking is NOT your thing, but…
…imagine taking the stage with absolute clarity in your content and poise & polish in your presence. Knowing that presentation victory is yours, your ideas are the catalyst for change in all who hear them, and there’s a hefty dose of alone time waiting for you after your speaking success.
And I’m the woman who’s going to help make it all happen. I’m Communication Consultant & Speech Coach, Dr. Michelle Mazur, and it’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance. You might wonder how did a nice girl from a working class family in New York ended up with a Ph.D. in Communication and a passion for coaching presentations?
It all began with a cute, blue-eyed boy in a Kansas City Royal baseball hat.
Allow me to tell you my story.
Imagine me in 9th grade wearing my 80′s fashion best, the boy that I had a mind-blowing, soul-crushing crush on was in my public speaking class. Back then, I was shy, terrified and never made a peep in class (even though I knew all of the answers). The thought of getting up from my desk, standing in front of the classroom and that blue-eyed love of my life, made my hands shake, knees go weak, and stomach churn.
For my first speech, I don’t remember what I said, but I’ll always remember how it made me feel – sick – moist sweaty palms, voice barely at a whisper and my knees knocking so hard I thought I was going to quite literally fall on my face.
I blazed through that presentation in record time with zero eye contact, death grip on the podium and my heart beating so loud I thought everyone in the first row of seats could hear it.
I got a C – it was a pity, “don’t be discouraged, but you suck” kind of a C.
Despite the crap grade and never landing a date with that baseball cap sporting minx, the universe placed a thought in my brain during that class that I could not shake (and trust me I tried hard to drive it out).
If you open your mouth and speak, lives change & people benefit from your message!
I knew that I needed to master this skill, but as the consummate over-achiever instead I fell head-over-heels crazy in love with public speaking.
Joining the speech and debate team transformed me from the girl who never spoke to the woman who could not just own the room but command it. I mastered my Masters degree, burst into a Ph.D program in Communication since then I’ve been coaching introverted, mission-driven entrepreneurs as well as quiet and shy business professionals to speak up and cause ripples of change in their businesses, careers and even their lives.
I’ve seen public speaking transform my clients from an awkward Dungeons and Dragons playing introvert to a well-spoken, audacious attorney or a panicky, over-the-top brilliant career gal to a poised business superstar on the rise.
Public speaking changed my life, and I 1000% believe it can change yours if you join me on the journey of mastering your speaking nemesis.
