If not you,
If not now,
What if you weren't dreading that upcoming speaking engagement? What if you were actually looking forward to it?
In this outrageously fun workshop, veteran film and television actor, Patrick Richwood takes a specific set of tools that have helped actors for generations, and brings them to everyone else. As modified by Richwood, anyone can use these tools to move concerns, fears and anxieties out of the way quickly, allowing you to deliver your message with confidence and ease to any audience you want to impact.
You really can become masterful at speaking in front of any audience, in any situation, from conference room to TED Talk – and (are you sitting down?) actually have fun doing it! The results are real: more sales, clients, influence... impact. Because when you have something to say to people, and nothing's in the way of you being really you – people listen in a whole new way.
Is this AN ACTING CLASS?
This workshop is NOT an acting class. In fact, it's not even for actors. It's very much for everyone else though. As an actor who's worked on busy, stressful Television and film sets for decades, I've developed a set of tools many actors use, which allow me to do my work, no matter the circumstances, and actually have fun doing it. I'm now bringing these tools to people who aren't in my business so that they can make the difference they're looking to make in their businesses – their communities and their lives. And, I've modified them so that anyone can use them to kick fear to the curb and have a breakthrough in their ability to reach people with their message, authentically and free from anxiety.
How much does it cost?
Admission to the FEAR SCHMEAR workshop is $140.00* Why so inexpensive? Because I want as many people as possible to have access to these tools. That's pretty much it.
Sometimes the person or business hosting the workshop will offer discounts and/or scholarships to their participants, in which case, rock on! Your host will communicate those details when they contact you to register.
My philosophy is simple: If not you, who? If not now, when?
* Credit processing fees from Eventbrite make the total $150.15
IS it coming to a city near me?
If you'd like to bring the FEAR SCHMEAR workshop to your community -- be it business, educational or social, let's do it! All it takes is a minimum of 10 participants and a conversation with me to get the ball rolling. I've had requests to do the workshop in New York City, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, Silicon Valley, Orlando, Atlanta and Waikiki. Let's bring it to your city too!

will you work with me one-on-one?
Absolutely! A lot of the people I work with are strictly private coaching clients. The benefit of course is that when it's just you and me, it's a much more individually tailored process because... well, it's just you and me.
Whether in the workshop or one-on-one, you'll get to implement and start using the tools that will free you up right away – and that's what it's all about.

I had no idea what to expect from my first session. In one afternoon I was able to identify what was standing in the way of my communication and progress. Patrick - thank you! You are a treasure!
This is a DO NOT MISS workshop! Patrick uses the tools he has developed as an actor and translates them beautifully and simply for anyone, regardless of their work! Vin Siegfried, Banking Technology Executive.
