Resources for becoming a confident public speaker
Retired after 15 years as a public speaking coach,Carla Kimball took an unusual approach to public speaking. She worked from inside-out, not giving you a list of things to remember, but rather helping you find a calm, quiet center from which to speak. This is because her simple and practical strategies and tools can be practiced in everyday life and interactions, not just when you making a formal presentation.
Carla has written two workbooks to help you discover your own innate quality of presence. They are filled with articles and exercises to practice what you’ve learned.
- SpeakingPresence Toolkit: Describes the mental models that get in the way of speaking with presence and those that help you create a sense of presence. Filled with articles and exercises to support you in your journey towards speaking confidence.
- The ABCs of Presence in Speaking, Leading, and Life!: A workbook of 26 articles and related exercises to help you over come your fear of public speaking.
Public Speaking Blog Posts: Carla was a prolific writer in the field of public speaking presence and has compiled her many articles into separate blog posts. These articles are timeless and can be enjoyed at any time.
