RHETORIC. The app is here!

Quite often, anxiety and public speaking go together. Many people experience sweaty palms, a racing heart and shallow breathing whenever they have to speak in front of an audience. The scientific term for this fear is glossophobia.

However, public speaking doesn’t have to be that way. With practice, you can turn your anxiety into pleasure and excitement, and overcome your fears. Here’s a great app created by Florian Mueck and my husband, John Zimmer, that will help you practice your speaking skills with family, friends and colleagues. And, you will have fun in the process!

Manner of Speaking

My friend and business partner, Florian Mueck and I are thrilled to announce the launch of the app for Rhetoric – The Public Speaking Game™. It has been an incredible journey.

A few years ago, we looked for board games specifically designed for public speaking but could not find any. Because public speaking is such an important skill, we thought, why not create something that helps people improve and makes the experience an enjoyable one? And so RHETORIC, the world’s first public speaking board game, was born.

Flo and JohnThe first edition, released in 2011, was a big success, selling out completely to people around the world. The second, limited edition was released in 2015 and it has been just as popular. RHETORIC is now played on all continents and is used by business people, high school teachers, university professors, trainers, Agile learning coaches and people who want to have a unique experience with friends and family.
