Passionate About Helping Others Overcome Social Anxiety and the Fear of Public Speaking
The great Stephen M.R Covey once said,
“Smart People see mistakes that will help them improve and they become an expert in learning from their mistakes. Most often, in fact, it is the failures that bring about the breakthroughs and insights. Success can only be achieved through repeated failure and introspection.”
This quote sums up how the Fedderson Formula came to be. It was methodically created through repeated public speaking fails. No joke… I’m talking speech after speech and presentation after presentation of sweat, anxiety, stuttering, rambling, slide overload, and shaky voice. It was brutal!!
My name is Stuart Fedderson and I am a Social Enthusiast with Social Anxiety.
Yep, you read that right.
I have struggled with SOCIAL ANXIETY and my own SELF-CONFIDENCE since the time I was a boy. Each time I would stand up in front of a group, become nervous, or go to a social event, I would begin to stammer and ramble nervously. A term that became known as 'THE FEDDERSON FUMBLE" to many of my classmates. I knew that I could not live like that anymore. I realized that the only way I could overcome this suppressed anxiety and lack of self-confidence was to finally step outside of my comfort zone and confront every uncomfortable situation head-on. I realized those situations were often the most important if I ever want to reach my potential. It was painful at times... but certainly worth it.
As a teenager, I discovered the art of public speaking and my life changed forever as I gradually overcame my insecurities. At age 15, I began keeping my own public speaking research journal with “AWESOMENESS RESEARCH’ written on the cover. I began documenting what made the greatest speakers, both modern and historical, so influential. I continued my research throughout high school and college. As I graduated college and started my career, my Awesomeness Research slowly developed into The Fedderson Formula as it is today.
I learned through trial and error that at the essence of every credible public speaker is an in-depth understanding of his/her individuality and authentic sense of self.
These seminars are my way to let the world know that there is hope because learning the art of public speaking changed my life. Whether you suffer from depression, anxiety, lack of self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, public speaking fear, or speech impediments there is hope for you in this program. On the other hand, if you simply want to improve your social presence, your presentation skills, or stand out in the crowd, these workshops are for you.
I have consolidated years’ worth of tools, techniques, and strategies into a comprehensive formula that will not only TRANSFORM your audience, but also will TRANSFORM YOU along the way.
Now don't get me wrong... To this day, I still struggle with my social and general anxiety disorder and my own self-confidence, it is a daily battle, I am not afraid to make that confession. I have simply learned how to turn on my social presence instinctively, suppress my anxiety, and channel that energy into something that engages others and builds credibility, confidence, and charisma. Join me on my journey!”
