Learning how to be a better public speaker will change your life.

“Speaking changed my life. It improved my confidence and communication skills, I found life-long friendships with other speakers, and I met my wife. All because I chose to fight the fear and get on stage. I believe wholeheartedly that anyone can become a great speaker, and that you too will see a profound impact on your life by following the voices of wisdom on Be the Keynote.”

Learning how to be a better public speaker will change your life.

“I refused to speak for years because I was suffering – as many do – from imposter syndrome. I was terrified of someone in the audience, during a Q&A session, asking the question “How do you know?” and that I wouldn’t be able to defend my position. In the six years that followed, travelling the world speaking to crowds from 6 to 6,000 I’ve never once been asked a question like that.
