  It was a pleasure being interviewed on the Life Unrehearsed radio show on CJAD 800 Montreal, where we discussed: How to manage public speaking ‘jitters’ (seriously, I love that word) Why my shoes nearly ruined my presentation (and why they nearly ruined my feet too!) From Nervous to Nailed It! The book that’ll help you get over all the bad feelings (yes, those jitters) related to public speaking and instead, support you in finding your voice, sharing your message, and presenting with impact. Thank you Matt Delvecchio for inviting me onto the show again, and for the great conversation ..read more

  When our coaching mandate ended, I asked a client if she would consider providing me a testimonial that speaks to the amazing work that we did together. She did me one better and wrote me a poem. But not just ANY poem. The best poem. EVER. And so, compliments of the incredibly talented and creative Kara Rutherford, MSc, Manager of Strategic Growth & Planning at the Walkerton Clean Water Centre….and now one of my favorite clients EVER, may I present:   “A POEM TO MY PUBLIC SPEAKING COACH”    Twas’ the night before work, but still in the office;  A nervous employe ..read more

  And just like that, From Nervous to Nailed It! is launched! I was nervous that it would never see the light of day. But somewhere in the last 2 years, a fire was lit under me, I regained focus, and there was no turning back. Many thanks to the people who got tired of asking me about the book, yet somehow, never gave up on me. And now…. It is done. It is launched. And I’m so excited (and a teeny bit emotional) to share it with you. There’s still much to be done to share the message of moving From Nervous To Nailed It! with the world (e-book, Audible, Online Program, recharged keynote, p ..read more

Big News: The first proof of my book is here! (and cappuccino was involved…)

After 5 years of on-and-off writing (with the ‘official’ re-start over 2 years ago), the PROOF of From Nervous to Nailed It! Find Your Voice, Present With Impact, and Unleash Your Ultimate Speaking Potential is here! Yes, I know that the word “to” is missing. It’s hiding behind the “not for resale” banner. This version is the first hard copy, and is intended as the final proofreading opportunity to catch any lingering spelling, grammar or formatting errors. We’ll get there. I started with a “just sit down and get it done” mindset. But again… this is the almost-final-but-not-yet-for-sale-beca ..read more

“It’s really best if you DON’T succeed” – said no one ever, except for THIS company

I once coached a client on an important presentation that she had to deliver to her company’s sales team where she, and other members of her marketing department, had to present the new product updates and marketing strategies for the next quarter. Over five intensive sessions, we restructured her presentation, created engaging elements, shared relevant stories and examples, and rehearsed extensively. We even brought in fun props – largely because it was a toy company, and everything was fun. We established a call-to-action to help her sales team understand their next steps, including what th ..read more

Confidence is a LIE. Here’s why you don’t need it to succeed.
Suzannah Baum | Unleash Your Speaking Potential

Many people reach out to me because they feel that their speaking journeys cannot start without it. They want to FEEL confident, LOOK confident, BE confident. Our belief in the POWER of confidence, and the NEED to have it in order to be a successful speaker, is skewed. And the endless pursuit of it can hold us back from a lot of great opportunities, or even lead us in the wrong direction. Think of those individuals who are FULL of confidence, but who are lousy speakers (and lousy leaders), but don’t feel that they need any help building these skills because they don’t feel nervous, and they j ..read more

Let Frustration Be Your Guide to Getting What You Want (and Need)!
Suzannah Baum | Unleash Your Speaking Potential

“I’m so frustrated….I’ve got to shake this feeling!” Do you really, though? While we may sometimes perceive that frustration is a negative emotion, it’s ALSO possible that this same frustration can lead you to do things that you would not normally do — which then not only kills the frustration, but can set you on a new, far more positive path. Here’s how a recent fit of frustration led me outside in -20 degree C weather, where I spent an hour slipping, sliding, and falling on my bum (and somehow, loving it….although not the falling on the bum part) — while reflecting on how a conversation abou ..read more

WHEN should you address questions in your presentation?
Suzannah Baum | Unleash Your Speaking Potential
by Suzannah Baum
1y ago
“When giving a presentation, should I save all questions to the end? Or should I take them as they come up, even though it might be distracting or go off topic?” While it’s likely more convenient for you, as a speaker, to hope that the audience will leave their questions to the end so that you can stay focused on the content that you’re presenting, that’s not always realistic – or advisable. Especially in work meetings, it makes sense to answer questions as they come up because if someone needs clarification or would like to add additional information to what you’re saying in a way that will b ..read more
