I am honoured and grateful to bring you guys my next podcast episode with the incredible Eric Edmeades. Thank you, Roland Tokko and Edu Akadeemia for making this possible! Eric has had an eclectic career as a serial entrepreneur – he has been involved in a variety of businesses ranging from mobile computing to Hollywood special effects. Besides being an internationally renowned speaker, most people know him today as the creator of many life-transforming programs like WildFit, Business Freedom and Speaker Nation. What you might not know is that in his early days he was so terrified of public speaking that he could barely eat for days before a talk. Fast forward and at one point he was invited to speak on business and marketing at Anthony Robbins’ Business Mastery program in Fiji. He was initially booked as an emergency fill-in speaker, but Tony enjoyed his style so much that booked him for a year of events which ultimately kicked off Eric’s speaking career. Since systematically reversing his fear of public speaking, Eric has become a highly sought after main stage speaker with over 10,000 hours of stage time in tens and tens of different countries around the world. Among the many well-respected speakers, he has shared the stage with Sir Richard Branson, Jack Canfield, John Gray, Robin Sharma and President Bill Clinton. In this special episode we will touch upon some of the essential elements of mastering the art of public speaking.
Moreover – he is not only an impeccable speaker, but he also teaches others how to become one. The amazing news is that Eric is going to facilitate a day-long workshop called “One Talk Away” in Tallinn on the 24th of August! What an incredible opportunity to learn the skills of effective communication from the very best in the world! I am going to attend the event myself and I am inviting you as well!

“In today’s world you can change your entire life by constructing and delivering one very powerful presentation. Indeed, you can change your whole life! You could land that book deal, the movie deal, raise the money for your company, launch a political campaign, etc. Michelle Obama commented that she and Barack would often sit in the White House and think back to this one specific talk that Barack once gave. And that talk was the talk that changed everybody’s energy about him. From that day on, instead of asking him state or local political questions, people started asking him national and international questions. Both Michelle and Barack believe that that talk was the one talk that led him being in the White House. And so in my workshop I am helping people design and deliver a talk that has the capacity to change everything in their life. Indeed, the ability to communicate your ideas persuasively is one of the most powerful forms of influence on earth.”– Eric Edmeades
