I came to TCI in September 2012. Both my wife Janelle and I decided to take the journey together, figuring that if all we got out of it was a better marriage, then that’d be a pretty damn good deal! Yes, it’s been so much more than that!
Life before TCI? A bit different…!
I was an actor, producer and director of my own theatre company, whilst holding down a day job at a transport company. Yup, I told you it was a bit different!
Needless to say I was very busy. So busy that I burnt out while doing the very thing that I loved and eventually gave my theatre company away. All I was left with was my bills paid from keeping my transport job, and an empty feeling for giving up my passion.
There’s only so long that one can stay with that empty feeling before finally taking action. And after many conversations with a great friend who was then a WOW team member, I started to see options.
Fast forward 13 months after intake, and it finally dawned on me how I could bring back my old passion to help others. This realisation LITERALLY woke me up at 3am one morning, and I greeted it by saying, “Holy S#!t, That’s it!” Yep, early morning foul mouth…
That’s when The Public Speaking Institute was born! Using the 15+ years of performance experience I have to help people become brilliant presenters just made perfect sense. My passion has been reignited!
The progress of my clients has been nothing short of amazing! They’re loving the results they’re getting in a short period of time, and they’re amazed at the depth that we’re able to go with helping them become awesome presenters and facilitators.
*sidenote: they even said I should charge more – now that’s sexy feedback!
The most significant things that have helped me have the success I’ve had thus far is based on 2 main things:
What’s going on for the future? I’m currently putting together my first presenters program, ready to launch in 2015. That will lead on to advanced intensives that I’ll run a few times a year. Plus more cool things to come…!
So yes, 2015 is already mine! Come and claim it with me – if you want…
