This week I spoke with executive speech coach Suzannah Baum about how she overcame her fear of public speaking, shifted her mindset and became a presentation skills specialist and speaker. 

About Suzannah

On a personal note….Suzannah is the mom of a 9-year old boy, she is always on the lookout for a pair of high-heeled shoes that are comfortable enough to wear for an entire day of training (she hasn’t quite found them yet, but continues to search), and always travels with chocolate.

With more than 14 years in the speaking industry, Suzannah has helped thousands of speakers gain more confidence, build more powerful presentations, and unleash their ultimate speaking potential.
