In my fiction book, my main character, Ian, one of Santa’s helpers, has to undergo some management training. Of course it includes public speaking which he dreads at first. But he soon realizes that all of his classmates suffer similar anxieties. They address their fears and conquer most of them in a planned, gradual way. Most of them learn to cope and Ian is one of them.

All the best!
