FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SHARES PUBLIC SPEAKING "SECRETS"
WITH VALLEY WOMEN BUSINESS OWNERS
Woodland Hills, CA - Are there easy ways to overcome the fear
of standing in front of an audience? Are there simple and natural
ways to make a positive impact and immediately win respect? "Yes"
said Pasadena-based author and nationally respected speech coach
Practicing her own advice, she was the featured speaker at a meeting
of the California Women Business Owners Monday evening, November
8, at the Warner Center Marriott Hotel. The title of her address
was "Stand Out When You Stand Up!"
"It begins with an attitude adjustment," Rocha advised. "Are you
comfortable with yourself and your subject? Are you comfortable
with silence? If so, you're likely to make a great first impression
on any size audience, because you'll be focused on them, not on
yourself," she continued. "Increasing business and meeting your
growth goals are often going to depend on your coming across as
knowledgeable and tuned into your audience."
The title of Ms. Rocha's book, "Getting Over Yourself - A Guide
to Painless Public Speaking", reflects the philosophy she shared
with the CWBO gathering. "Getting over yourself means you get
out of your own way - to better connect with your listeners. It
means you're free to communicate your ideas, instead of your fears",
