This is a story of Paul and how he finally conquered his fear of public speaking…
“4 years ago, I was elected as a senior church and community elder and leader in my district. This was a coveted position which I had for a very long time anticipated.
And I knew for sure I was making the right steps because my overall goal was to transition into Kenyan politics.
You have heard the saying, “with great power comes great responsibility.” And I quickly learnt that there was a lot that was expected of me as a leader.
And one of the things that was expected of me was the ability to speak with confidence in order to inspire others towards positive change.

But what everyone didn’t know is that deep down, I was struggling with Public Speaking.
I remember one time I stood to address congregants and I got so nervous I could barely speak. I started sweating and everything I had prepared for just seemed to disappear.
While everyone assumed I was naturally born confident, I knew I needed help and fast especially if I wanted to transition into politics.
The youtube videos I watched on how to conquer my fear of public speaking were good but they weren’t helping me much.
I needed something practical, something that would enable me to see where I was going wrong and what I needed to do to improve on my skills.
Then one day as I was preparing for a speech and researching on my content on the internet, something popped up.
An advert saying, “Learn how to speak with confidence in only 7-weeks!”
And that’s when the light bulb came on! I knew this was it. This was the kind of training I was looking for.
As I clicked the link to read testimonials on how others had conquered their fear of public speaking in the past, I was simply left amazed!
Doctors, Politicians, Sales Managers, Finance Managers, Laboratory scientists, Accountants, Clinical Officers, HR Managers among so many others had gone through this course.
I did not hesitate to enroll.
7 weeks later, the transformation was evident.
Upon delivering my first sermon many of the congregants applauded me for what they termed as one of my most powerful sermons to date.
I have been chosen many of the times to speak in more engaging forums and I have found myself being able to deliver with confidence and poise.
And now as I gear up to contest in the 2022 general elections, I am confident that I shall be able to convince others confidently and use my voice to influence them towards positive change.
-Paul; Previous Participant of Public Speaking Training.
Are you in a similar position where you feel you are looking for a long lasting solution that will help you speak with confidence?
Maybe just like Paul, others naturally assume you are confident and single you out to speak but secretly, you know you get nervous at the very thought of standing and presenting in front of others.
Truth be told, public speaking is a skill that is learnt.
And being a confident speaker has nothing to do with your personality (by the way!).
Just because you are introverted doesn’t automatically mean that you are a poor public speaker. Neither does being an extrovert mean you are a great public speaker.
And in case you are wondering, there is a very big difference between communication and eloquence!
Communication is the very foundation of excellent public speaking; the ability to pass across an intended message.
Eloquence is important but it is not the backbone of excellent public speaking. You can be an eloquent speaker but your audience never understands what you are saying neither do they connect with you.
So what next?
There’s a lot of content on public speaking, on how to speak with confidence but if you are looking for a more practical approach where you can get to practice and get positive criticism, then there’s a solution for you.
Since March this year, over 180 diverse and experienced professionals have gone through a rigorous and highly practical training on how to speak with confidence to any large or small crowd.
They have gone further to experience numerous benefits in their careers and even personal lives.
They can now speak in any engagement and convince their audiences whether in a board room meeting, during business presentations, in church, in social circles, conferences etc.
If you are serious about overcoming your fear of public speaking, then join the next 7-week course on how to speak with confidence starting next month on Thursday, 4th of October 2018 from 6:00Pm – 8:30P.m.
I look forward to seeing you on 4th of October.
