For most people, their number one fear is public speaking. Most people fear it more than death itself. This informative and fun seminar, taught by stage, film and television actor Paul Hecht, is designed to help people overcome their fear of public speaking by introducing a series of easy to use methods and techniques that will empower them.

Paul Hecht is a Canadian actor who made his Broadway debut in 1968 in Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, for which he was nominated for a Tony Award. Additional Broadway credits include 1776, The Rothschilds, The Great God Brown, Caesar and Cleopatra, and The Invention of Love. He received the Obie Award for his performance in the off-Broadway production of Enrico IV. His television credits include the recurring role of Allie's ex-husband Charles on Kate & Allie, Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and As the World Turns.
