Speaking

Understanding Performance Anxiety

 

I offer informative and educational presentations to educators, business leaders, cultural institutions, arts organizations, social service organizations and mental health professionals. 


While I am often invited to present on the topic of stage fright and music performance, I also offer keynote speeches and workshops illustrating how understanding performance anxiety is relevant to  dealing effectively with a variety of social and psychological issues. I also offer presentations on the #MeToo Movement.


I have gained a reputation for my multi-faceted approach to performance anxiety and the ability to explain complex concepts in understandable ways. My presentations are enlivened with audio-visuals and a lot of time for audience Q&A.
