The Pleasure Principle

of Public Speaking

“As a result of one Speaking Circle, I did my first talk a week later without beta blockers! No nervousness, no anxiety. I felt involved, vivacious, interested in the people, like we were having a conversation!”

Charlotte Melleno, Psychotherapist


"Public speaking was an agonizing experience -- evenwhen I knew the material well and wanted to share it. I had always been so wrapped up in my own anxiety that I hardly paid any attention to the audience. Through Speaking Circles I now actually enjoy speaking!"

Hal Perry, Psychotherapist


"I learned not only how to be a better speaker, but how to be more fully alive in my power. I use these principles in my ministry to transform the people who come to my church."

Janet Herron, Unity Minister


"Yesterday I spoke at a local TEDx event. If it were not for my Speaking Circle workshop experience I know I would not have been on that stage yesterday.  Lee, as I settled in my spot on the stage at the beginning of my talk, I took a moment to take a breath and see and feel my audience.  I have not forgotten!"

Mary Schaefer, Coach, Trainer, Consultant and Speaker
