"Nancy Regan has interviewed many of the biggest stars in the entertainment industry--Oprah, Madonna, and Harrison Ford to name just a few--and has a gift for putting people at ease. But while studiously projecting confidence, the beloved Live at 5 host often struggled with insecurity, imposter syndrome, perfectionism, and fear of failure. In her first book, Regan offers up her own life experience and struggles in vulnerable and honest prose, exploring how overcoming these challenges enriched her life and now fuels her ability to help others. Weaving together self-help and memoir, Practicing Presence offers readers access to Regan's personal and professional toolkit--whether they're leading a Zoom meeting or speaking to a crowd of thousands--garnered from two decades of television broadcasting, as well as real-life examples drawn from her current role as a professional speaker and presentation coach. Ultimately, this timely book asks readers to explore the deeper issues behind their fear of public speaking, and learn to embrace their authentic self in every interaction; and to understand that being present in the moment is a practise. This book will be a handy map for anyone who wishes to embark on a journey to living their most authentic life with contentment and confidence."-- Provided by publisher.
