The Confidently Speaking™ Story

Confidently Speaking™ was founded in New York in 2002.

Our Founder Seymour Segnit (himself a former nervous speaker See him now ) realized there was very little quality help available for people who are serious about overcoming serious fear.

Initially we set up an office on Central Park West to see clients in person.

But a funny thing happened. Our first client was a woman from New York who visited the office. The second was an executive who called from Saudi Arabia and insisted on working with us by phone. The third was a well-known artist in Los Angeles, who again wanted to work by phone.

A few weeks passed and our friend in Los Angeles wrote to us:

  1. "Hope this note finds you well. Just wanted to tell you, that four public speaking engagements later, I have realized that I have gone through a total transformation...

  2. I´m telling you all this because I´m convinced that before working with you, I would not have had the confidence to trust myself enough to stand up as an authority and do this work.

  3. Your process works, and I will not hesitate to advice anyone with public speaking issues to contact you!"

And so Confidently Speaking™ was born.

We're still in New York state, but now in California and the Gold Coast of Australia as well, and we work exclusively by telephone with clients all over the world.

If you are now ready to overcome Fear of Speaking forever, we believe you will not find a better, more successful team.
