Tame anxiety to turn it into your ally (ENG)

Anxiety is a common experience for many of us. Anxiety is usually seen as an obstacle, an impairment, a force that takes control over us to our detriment.

The fact that anxiety is so commonplace & widespread clearly suggests that it serves us as a biological survival mechanism; not only for coping in life-threatening situations, but, actually, in our daily routine.

How can we tame our anxiety so that it will work as a friend rather than an enemy?

Coordinator: Emanuele Mascherpa
"Bachelor in Psychology I worked for the HR department of multinational firms in the Beauty, Banking, and Consulting sectors. Since 2000 I help managers and clients to deliver effective speeches capable of inspiring people and move them to action and change. This is the only way you can bring your idea to life, whether you are a manager or an entrepreneur, you have to persuade someone to help you. You need money, investors, people to work with, managers to change their ideas and so on. Most of the time you achieve these through a presentation, that's why Public Speaking is so important nowadays and why it is a key competence to develop. I've designed a public speaking method that not only focuses on the delivery part of a speech but, more importantly, on the strategic path to take to be more effective. Preparation is the key and most of the time this phase is skipped for lack of time. This is the reason why most of the speeches are boring, not focused, ineffective. Through the right strategy, you can be more effective and result-driven and transform each presentation into a success."
