What if you knew that mastering the art of public speaking was easy? That you could transform your business, your career and your life by getting to grips with this one skill? That you could find yourself a member of a global community with a hub (and a welcoming home) in every city around the world?
Well, that’s just what Eric Edmeades is on a mission to do. Eric is an author, serial entrepreneur and international business speaker. He has logged thousands of hours on stage, even sharing it with the likes of Tony Robbins, Richard Branson and Bill Clinton. Eric’s been involved in a variety of businesses ranging from mobile computing to Hollywood special effects, and now he has turned his attention to his latest project, creating a global movement called Speaker Nation.
“One of the greatest gifts that I ever gave myself was overcoming both my fear and my lack of confidence around communication. I changed my life by overcoming my nervousness and working to cultivate skills and learning how to engage an audience and communicate effectively.”
Learning to conquer his fear around public speaking inspired Eric to help others overcome their anxieties. He had already triumphed in the wellness world with his Wildfit programme, helping over 15,000 clients in 130 countries around the world change how they feel about food. Now he is determined to help others who are struggling to get their words out or struggling to create the kind of influence they want.
He already runs The Speaking Academy, an outstanding and highly effective 5-day presentation skills training program, but Speaker Nation is a movement that will create an international community for aspiring and professional speakers who share in a common vision of a better future, that will make them better.
