All About Public Speaking and Presentation Skills

Chris has been speaking and training professionally since 2015. His audiences include students, out-of-school youth, and professionals in the academe, government and industry. His  topics include leadership, communication, confidence building, personal branding, basic personal finance and many others.

This year, he re-launched with more focus on the much need skill of public speaking, which includes but not limited to keynote speaking, training, presenting, moderating, facilitating and hosting. It’s going to be all about public speaking!

“Join me in my mission of building a better community one better public speaker at a time.”

Chris believes that you and I need to become better public speakers regardless of our profession or business. Public speaking is not limited to professional speakers, trainers, teachers, priests, pastors, preachers, professors and politicians. It is a mistake to forget about public speaking if you are not one of them. It is also a mistake to forget about public speaking once you become one of them.

You and I need to hone our public speaking skills no matter what we do in life. It has to come with it.

All of us – at certain points in our lives – have spoken and will speak or present in various occasions for various reasons. So even if you are not a speaker by profession, he wants to serve you. And if you speak or present regularly as part of who you are and what you do, he says this:

“Let us journey together. Let us build a better community with our better presentations and speeches everytime we take the stage.”

“Join me re-launch with this tagline: Speak. Spark. Spur. This is what we are meant to do.”

First, speak. We need to speak a message. In whatever we do and speak about, our message should be very clear. It is important that we stand our ground and give that message. Speak up as necessary. Do not silence yourself. There is a time to shut up but there is also a time to speak up. Let us learn to speak a message.

Second, spark. We need to spark inspiration. Speaking your message comes with the responsibility to lift people up. There are already tons of problems in this world. There are already countless bad news. While we do not deny or cover those up, it is essential that we speak a message of hope, of inspiration to our audiences and to the people around us. Let us learn to spark inspiration.

Third, spur. We need to spur action. Our message that comes with the message of hope should lead us to move people to action, an action that is based on sound decision for the betterment of life and of the community. The message and inspiration shall be made full with the action that is spurred because of what we are able to speak and spark. Let us learn to spur action.

“My friend, join me! Let us journey together for something better and deeper. Let us journey together to speak a message, spark inspiration, and spur action. Let us journey together and build a better community one better public speaker at a time.”

“I enjoyed reading Chris’ book. I know it will help many, many people.”

“Chris is a great example of someone who has been faithful with what God has brought his way. From humble beginnings, he did not let those circumstances define him, and cause him to grumble. Instead, he pursued excellence, rose above the circumstances, and is now an author, an author of his second book!”
