  • Address the fear factors for public speaking
  • Offer mental shifts to boost confidence and manage nerves

About our speaker

 

Betsy Graziani Fasbinder

Betsy Graziani Fasbinder

Betsy Graziani Fasbinder is an award-winning author, a licensed psychotherapist, and an in-demand communications trainer. She has coached public speaking for the enthusiastic, the reluctant, and the downright phobic in Fortune 500 companies and public classes throughout the U.S. and abroad. She has coached executives preparing for high-level pitches, politicians running for office, and movers and shakers preparing TED talks. Regardless of position or the type of presentation, she coaches others to conquer their stage fears, to engage listeners, eliminate distracting habits, and never again allow a fear of public speaking to be an obstacle in their business and personal endeavors.

A lifelong lover of books, empowering writers is one of Betsy’s passions. After all of the work that goes into writing a book and securing opportunities to speak about it, authors deserve to enjoy their book events and trust their own speaking skills, making them the best possible advocate for their books and ideas.

Betsy overcame her own terror of public speaking by learning a set of simple techniques. She now shares these skills with writers and other creatives, helping them to inform, entertain, influence, and inspire audiences of any size. She loves helping those skilled at finding their “writing voice” to find their “speaking voice” so that they can use their platform to maximum advantage.  

Betsy is the author of a novel, Fire & Water, (2013) and Filling Her Shoes: A Memoir of an Inherited Family (2017), both published by She Writes Press. Filling Her Shoes was honored with a Booklist Starred Review, a Pinnacle Achievement Award, and listed by Readers’ Favourite as a “memoir to read”.

As a Book Midwife, Ruth helps authors get clear about the steps needed to turn out a professional book that looks as good as anything coming from a traditional publisher. Ruth helps you get past the stuck places, getting through the decision-making process quickly, birthing your book with ease.
