Do you suffer from glossophobia – the fear of public speaking? Well, you’re not alone. It’s estimated that as much as 75 percent of all people are fearful of speaking in front of groups. If you’re a public official or local government staff, the occasions where you need to speak in public can be frequent and unavoidable. That’s why the VML Voice is doing a two part series on “Strategies for Successful Public Speaking.” In this first episode we talk with public speaking instructor Myeisha Grady from VML Community Business Member the American Public University System.
