Join host Judi Moreo, author of Everything You Ever Wanted to Know (And No One Would Tell You) About Public Speaking as she speaks with Toastmaster Deborah Clark about her journey from fear to a career as a public speaker.

This episode's guest is Tom Dowd who is an expert in the area of public speaking. Tom is an active member in Toastmasters International, a group of 300,000 members worldwide looking to develop communication and leadership skills. Tom joined in 2008 thinking it was just a way to boost his résumé. It became a wonderful downhill spiral of failure. Whether it was a speech contest or a publisher’s rejection, Toastmasters pushed him beyond his comfort zone to find self-awareness, belief that he could make a difference and the motivation to take smarter steps toward success both personally and professionally. What Tom found was a boost in confidence that changed the path of his life and career. In 2010-2011, he was awarded the District 45 Outstanding Toastmaster of the Year representing over 100 clubs in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and the three eastern most provinces of Canada. Now exhibiting consistent speech contest success, Tom is the two-time Table Topics District 45 champion for 2012 and 2013. Additionally, he is a member of the National Speakers Association and the Global Speakers Federation.
Tom Dowd, AKA Transformation Tom™, is a loving father of three beautiful daughters and a devoted husband from a small town in Maine. He is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Communication degree, concentrating on interpersonal and organizational communication. Tom is a prize-winning speaker, an award-winning and Amazon best-selling author, trainer, coach, and radio host—all spurred by his need to be more than a painfully shy and introverted individual on a rollercoaster ride of success.

Jill Vanderwood, the author of Shaking Behind the Microphone: Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking, will share the 10 point plan she uses herself to help make public speaking experiences more manageable.
It wasn't until Jill Vanderwood became an author that she needed to overcome her fear of public speaking. She was asked to visit classrooms and give speeches to children, as well as teach workshops for other writers. She was terrified in front of audiences but told herself to never say "no" to a speech.
First she would accept the speaking assignment and then figure out how she was going to do it. This lead her to Toastmasters.
The final "leap" she made was to go skydiving. Now she tells herself, "I'm not afraid of these people. I went skydiving from 12,000 feet!"
You will learn ten points to make your public speaking experience more manageable, plus stories from others who were faced with the prospect of losing their jobs if they didn't learn to speak in public.
Biography: Jill Vanderwood is a published author of six books who also teaches workshops to other writers. She speaks to groups about overcoming the fear of public speaking. She has been interviewed on radio, television, and newspaper media. Trained through Toastmasters, she has to overcome her own public speaking fear which held her back for most of her life.
Do you fear what other people think of you? Do you worry and fret over other's opinions?

It's time to get over this fear of public speaking. You live in a world of media now. The chances of you ending up on film or having your voice recorded and played in public are outrageously large.
We're going to kill the misconceptions that make people hate the idea of public speaking.
When this show is over, if you listened closely, you will not have a fear of public speaking anymore. This fear is a bully, and tonight, we are going to kick its ass rather thoroughly and promptly.
Show notes: the correlation that I mentioned but did not follow up on was this--the fact that I do my shows (so far) without notes or preparation except for thinking is a testament to the fact that if you're open, honest, and at least semi-knowledgeable about your topic, MY broadcast is the WORST you can get, and from feedback I've seen, it isn't bad 'tall. You, on the other hand, WILL have notes (cards) presumably--I'd advise against them and just say go with it, since it allows for realism and spontaneity (something else people are terrified of) but to be safe and to be sure, you'll have your notes, so you'll be BETTER than me in this broadcast, and that should be more than good enough!
On this episode we are talking about ways to overcome the fear of public speaking.
Krista and Wendy highlight the unexpected benefits of joining Toastmasters. It can help you in several areas of your life, from speaking at your next Family Readiness Group meeting, to networking for a new job, preparing for a job interview and even preparing to give that training session. Toastmasters isn't just for "aspiring public speakers", it is for everyone!
Do you feel confident in answering the question: "Tell me a little more about yourself?"
