Become a Master Speaker and Wow Your Audience

Oh man, I can't wait for you to listen to today's conversation on The School of Greatness.

Oh man, I can’t wait for you to listen to today’s conversation on The School of Greatness.

Especially if you are afraid of public speaking.

Have you ever listened to a powerful speech or spoken word performance and been mesmerized?

And wished you could do the same?

Sekou Andrews is here to teach you how.

He is one of the very best spoken word poets in the world and has developed an amazing performance style called poetic voice.


“You are still your most important audience of all.”  

But he didn’t start out thinking he’d be a poet.

He was a school teacher.

And then he realized there was a bigger purpose for his voice.

Sekou not only shared a powerful performance of one of his poems during our interview, but he also gave TONS of really helpful tips on how anyone can improve their speaking skills.

His advice is some of the best coaching I’ve ever heard – and he has the qualifications to back it up.

Be sure to give yourself the gift of listening to Sekou’s insight and inspiraton in Episode 410.

“Instead of quitting your day job you quit your day dreams.”
