Speak with Courage! 40-minute keynote talk
There’s no such thing as a ‘natural born leader’, ‘natural born public speaker’, or ‘natural born confident person!’ We often see very capable individuals, who perhaps feel they’ve become a little stale, or are not making the impact they’d like yet. This is almost certainly not due to any lack of ability, but because no one (including you!) knows that you’re as good as you really are. One of the challenges is that our human nature can inhibit us from appearing too confident or pushing towards what we are actually capable of. In this talk, Thor will be encouraging you to tell your story and take action with specific ‘career conquering confidence Thorts’ to make your mark in life. Let the ideas Thor shares in this story based talk, gift you a touch of inspiration to stimulate your future accomplishments. Now it’s your turn to choose… will you speak with courage and make your impression on the world?
