We are All Capable of Public Speaking at a High Level
All of us have the potential to become leaders and communicate at a very high level. A perfect example is the story of Mohammed Qahtani. It might be surprising, but it took time for Qahtani to build confidence and overcome his fear of public speaking. Just like the rest of us. What is even more impressive is that he faces the additional challenge of managing a speech impediment.
Qahtani credits Toastmasters for helping him flourish. Now he not only performs as a comedian, he is also the 2015 Toastmasters’ World Champion of Public Speaking. Qahtani’s winning speech, “The Power of Words,” is well written and his delivery is polished. I embedded the video of his speech in this blog post as an example. It should not only be watched as a source of inspiration, but as something that is attainable.
