Terrified of Public Speaking? 2002 Bali Bombing Survivor Helps Non-Speakers Find Their Voices

Carren Smith, survivor of the 2002 Bali bombing, overcame a paralyzing fear of public speaking to become one of Australia's top motivational speakers. Now she teaches other non-speakers how to find their voice and share their message from the stage.
April 26, 2011 - PRLog -- Statistics show that the fear of public speaking overshadows all other phobias, even the fear of death. But one of Australia’s top speakers – a survivor of the 2002 Bali bombing – says she’s unlocked the secret to helping anyone become a successful speaker.

“The fear of public speaking stems from our projections and misinterpretations about what we think our audience must be thinking about us,” explains Carren Smith, who overcame her own fear of public speaking to become one of Australia’s top motivational speakers.  “The most important thing you must do to break through this fear is to become more authentic. The more clear you are about who you are and what message you’re here to deliver, the more magnetic you become – and less you worry about what people might be thinking.
