From Entrepreneur To Public Speaker
Alasdair has always had an entrepreneurial mindset. He started his first business at the age of twenty-two in the bus and coach industry. His business was a hit, and he went to do that for ten years. However, Alasdair realized that business was not massively scalable. At this point, he decided to switch to the property industry. The decision to pivot proved to be fruitful, and he was able to gain financial freedom. This financial freedom, in turn, brought him time to pursue his passion.
The man is massively successful today in a field that he never thought of even pursuing. Alasdair says, “I never thought I would be a speaker as I always lacked confidence and did not like the limelight at all. I became an accidental speaker as I had to step in to deliver a seminar to a group when my business partner met with an accident. I had to run that event, and I got the speaking bug.”
Alasdair’s stint as a speaker in a company presentation led to the discovery of public speaking as a career. He even tried speaking at a property event, sharing his learning and mistakes. These two incidents hooked him to public speaking, and he actively started putting himself out there.
Today, he teaches and mentors people to deliver their message impactfully. He teaches his students ways to prepare, present, and deliver a presentation that brings a change in the audience and helps make a sale. Alasdair has helped 100s of people realize their true potential through a training program called “Tell the World”. He has become a six-figure earning speaker and has spoken across the world. He has spoken in Uganda, Spain, India, Germany, and the USA, to name a few.
The skilled speaker wants to eradicate the fear of public speaking and show people that anyone can become an effective speaker and communicator by learning and implementing the skills needed to lead any presentation. These skills are crucial for everyone right from employees who want to learn to present better at work, to small business owners pitching for business, to entrepreneurs delivering presentations for sales, to marketing and branding.
