Yes, you can learn to love the spotlight.
Why do some of us gladly step forward while others shy away from public speaking, despite having something to say? If you’ve ever watched others take the stage - at conferences, in meetings, or even at your sister’s wedding - and yearned for the confidence to do the same - you can.
In this transformational guide, speaking coach Linda Ugelow delivers a holistic methodology that gets to the root of what’s stopping you from sharing your voice. Through powerful exercises and real-life stories of conquering performance nerves (including her own), Ugelow tells you how to free yourself from the anxieties and psychological roadblocks that are holding you back, and actually learn to enjoy the limelight. You’ll also learn exactly how to effectively prepare for speaking opportunities; how to memorize effectively; how to finally eliminate your use of filler words (like “um” or “right?”); and how to smoothly navigate slip-ups in front of an audience.
This isn’t an audiobook about “feeling the fear and doing it anyway", it’s about shedding that fear, loving yourself, and embracing opportunities to shine brightly. Whether your audience is online, in the boardroom, in a theatre, or in the workplace, your journey to full self-expression begins here.
“Linda Ugelow is a champion for those who suffer from anxiety around public speaking. In Delight in the Limelight, she offers a fresh approach to transform that fear from the inside out.” (Michael Port, New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author of Steal the Show and The Referable Speaker)
“It would be easy to just treat the symptom of camera-fright, and in fact, that’s what most books and coaches do. Thankfully, Linda Ugelow goes far deeper than that with this wonderful and practical book. She helps you not only find and heal the source of your fears but also build the skills and frameworks for you to finally become the speaker and presenter you want to be.” (Tamsen Webster, author of Find Your Red Thread)
“I love this book! It is wise, passionate, grounded and immensely practical. Using a wide range of wonderful stories and powerful, actionable techniques, Linda Ugelow shows us how to access our best selves, and gives us the tools to speak in public with freedom and joy. If you’re nervous about public speaking, or if you simply want to experience the power of integrating your authentic self into your professional life, this book is for you.” (Rebecca M. Henderson, Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire)

This book changed my life!
My whole life I’ve been shy, hate being in the limelight, and avoided it every way I could. This has affected me on a personal and professional level and has held me back from my true potential. Linda gets you to think about where this all began and helps you to move past it. For me, ever since I was little and just learning to speak my older sister has spoken over me or for me. “What she is trying to say is…” was a common sentence from her. I didn’t realize how much this had impacted me until this book. I felt like it was not safe to communicate (or be in the “spotlight”), or what I wanted to say was stupid and didn’t matter. I always knew part of my shyness was do to my sister, but this book gets you to think beyond that to what untrue things your inner voice has been telling you. I’ve noticed I’m already more present in conversations. Instead of analyzing everything I want to say before I say it, I’m able to be a bigger part of the conversation and share my knowledge and experiences with people. My brain is not in constant fight or flight mode! I cannot thank Linda enough for writing this book!
