Thanks to his social anxiety and a deep-seated fear of personal judgement my guest Tom Bailey spent the first 25 years of his life avoiding public speaking and anything to do with presentations.
This avoidance saw him launch multiple businesses that never even saw the light of day simply because he was too afraid to tell anyone he had launched.
… What if they didn’t like it?
… What if no one wanted to listen to what he had to say?
… What if they didn’t like him because of his accent?
These were the sorts of questions plaguing Tom’s mind and ultimately holding him back.
Fast forward 25 years (along with some serious inner work) and you will see someone who now understands the impact that public speaking and presentations can have; on both business relationships and careers overall.
Today you will find Tom helping other Entrepreneurs, Experts, Coaches and Consultants use speaking to amplify their authority, raise their profile and showcase their genius to a wider audience where they can attract new clients.
Grab your pen, a journal for notes, your favourite hot drink and settle in with me as we hear from Tom exactly what it took for him to overcome his limiting beliefs and achieve the quantum revenue expansion he was looking for.
