What’s the number one fear in the world? It isn’t death, but public speaking. Ironically, in trying to overcome his own fears using some unconventional wisdom in the face of tragedy, David Nihill, rather reluctantly, became one of the world’s leading experts on the topic, even though he hates it. David will show you in this inspirational and hilarious talk that while not everyone can overcome fear, everyone can learn to manage fear.
