Here's the path I recommend to overcome public speaking anxiety:

1. Take the SELF-PACED COURSE: Learn the fundamental concepts and techniques.

2. Sign up for the Desensitization Laboratory (LAB) workshop: Get 16-hours of personalized coaching and practice the anxiety management techniques with others who share your fear.

3. Join a public speaking practice CLUBKeep practicing the anxiety management techniques and maintain your gains.

 Sign up for one-on-one coaching (optional). If you cannot attend a Desensitization LAB, sign up for at least 2 coaching sessions so you can learn the framework. This will give you what you need to join a Club.
