Storytelling to Command a Crowd


Robynne Trifiletti


Why are we fine having 1-on-1 conversations, but get incredibly nervous in front of a crowd? In the world of psychology, there is no one size fits all solution for those fears, but there are ways to deal with judgement and everything else getting in your way to speak up.

In this session, we'll explore some of the most powerful techniques in order to control nerves and come across confidently in front of any audience. You'll learn how to overcome self-judgement and self-consciousness when speaking in public. You'll walk away having fallen in love with public speaking, feeling more confident and courageous, ready to take up your next speaking opportunity and make it a success!
