Transform Stage Fright into Authentic Presence Weekend Workshop

Do you freeze up, tense up when you speak?
Is fear of speaking holding you back?
Do you want to develop public speaking courage?
Want to be comfortable & confident speaking to groups?

This workshop will change your life! Sandra Zimmer guides you through her revolutionary Zimmer Method for transforming fear of public speaking and stage fright tension into a natural presence. You learn to show up with a powerful and authentic presence that frees your self-expression, so you improve public speaking significantly.

It is different from traditional public speaking courses. Instead of forcing mechanical speaking techniques on you, Sandra Zimmer helps you release the tensions, anxieties and physical sensations that distract you from sharing your ideas, insights and expertise. The result is that you feel comfortable to be yourself and confident to share your ideas freely in front of groups.

Through step-by-step exercises, you gain the following results from this 2-Saturday workshop experience:

  • Release the tension of being the center of attention
  • Be comfortable in your skin in front of others
  • Develop public speaking courage and free your self-expression
  • Create a genuine connection with listeners & audiences
  • Think on your feet in front of others
  • Practice sharing stories, ideas and expertise in a compelling & engaging manner

Who is this workshop for?

  • Professionals who need to speak but can't
  • Leaders who want to be more compelling & engaging
  • Salespersons who need to be more present & persuasive
  • Performers who want to shine when they share their talents

“I had to speak in front of about 30 people that were very high ranking in my company and I was applauded. I went around the room prior to speaking and shook hands with each person which helped me to connect with each one of them. That helped me out greatly in my speaking. I feel so wonderful about the experience now and feel like I can move on to do more things. Thanks!!! ”

“Sandra, please accept my joy and excitement “the day after“ your weekend Turning stage fright into Dynamic Presence workshop. It was everything I was looking for and more. You have found a way to make it possible for me to find and be with the power that I have. Part way through the workshop I began to feel a presence or strength in my upper abdomen that is still with me. It's solid like a rod or column of a building that supports me, but also has a pure energy quality to it. This presence will be a constant reminder that I can and do connect with others in powerful ways.”
