He walked up to me.
I could tell that he wanted to share a burden but I just didn’t know what it was.
“My name is Francis” He started.
I have been trying to develop my speaking skills.
I try my best to communicate with people as well as I can but a lot of people especially foreigners complain that they find it difficult to understand what I am saying.
I am a graduate but I don’t have a job yet.I am still applying.
I actually got an offer with a company before.It belongs to a woman who stay at Lekki but at the final stage of the interview, she said she couldn’t give me the job because my speaking skills were not good enough to persuade her high profile clients.
I felt really bad.
A lot of people have told me that before but I didn’t know it was a big issue till now.
Please, help me.
What can I do?”
This is not fiction. It happened today.
I was touched by what he said.
Thankfully, it’s not a helpless situation.
The interesting thing is that we had never met in person before but he had heard me speak and he believed there was something I could teach him.
I was humbled by that fact and I was very delighted to offer a few quick tips.
I also spent a few minutes encouraging him.
The truth is that there are many people like Francis who should have gotten good jobs yet there are still going from one interview to the other.In many cases, they have the technical know-how that the job requires.However, they need to develop their communication skills to beat the competition.
As you may have guessed, I told Francis about “SPEAK WITH POWER!” and you can be sure that He’s going to show up.
Who knows Francis could be the next Fela Durotoye, John Maxwell or Les Brown.
Don’t laugh.DREAMS COME TRUE!
If you are like Francis, you can’t afford to miss the seminar.
Even if you are an excellent speaker, I believe that you know a “Francis”.
There might be a Francis in your house, family or neighbourhood.
Help them out.Tell them about the seminar.
Encourage them by giving them part of the money.(You don’t have to give them all the money because they also need to invest in their own future…EXCEPT THEY ARE BROKE)
They will be eternally grateful to God that they met you.
You will also be elated because you will celebrate their success.
I look forward to seeing you with all the “Francis'” you know on January 30, 2010.
