In your life, there will be hinge moments like these when the quality of your speaking can change your fate -- and that of those around you. Do you know what to do with your voice, body and words to get the results you want? Are you going to leave those moments to chance? Or do you have the tools to master these moments such that you always position yourself for greater growth, wealth, and success?
Public speaking is one of the keystone skills of life. Unfortunately, few people receive formal training in it. Heck, most people are more afraid of public speaking than of death! Well, the fear ends here, people. This course aims to turn what may have been an area of uncertainty into a source of strength. Whether you are an entrepreneur, student, politician, professional, or teacher, the tools I give you will help you convey your message in a way that is persuasive, powerful, and moving.
Nobody's born a great public speaker (especially me), so wherever you start is fine. I even include some tips and tools specifically for overcoming stage anxiety and pre-talk jitters for those who may be a little wary of public speaking (which is approximately everyone). Whether you're a beginner or seasoned pro, these tools will help you achieve the next level of moment mastery when it comes your turn to speak. Once you acquire these skills, they stay with you for life. Join us to tap into a source of power that cannot be taken away from you.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT OTHER STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE COURSE:
"This is the best course I've seen on speaking and stage charisma. In a compact amount of time, Ali gives a ton of to-the-point, actionable advice and delivers it in an engaging and sometimes humorous way. This sets the bar for how a self-help course should be presented. 5 STARS." - Chris M., USA
"Dr Ali did a really great job by setting up this course! I am so glad I took it, especially as afterwards I had to moderate a panel with 4 people and also stood a few more times on the stage during a conference and recognized how his hands-on tips and tricks helped me with my posture, my voice, my eye contact and engagement of the audience, etc. Thank you! The course can be done on one day and practised over a longer period of time. I like that I can go back whenever and refresh my insights. I can highly recommend the course to anybody looking to enhance his/her public speaking skills, but also overall connecting with people (dating, job interview, bank loan, ...) Because although we all already know something, Ali sum's it up and makes a sweet package out of it, which is easy to follow and carry out. 5 STARS." - Karolina Z., Poland
