Meet the Master of World Class Speaking in Tokyo2012.05.01

    The Master of World Class Speaking is speaking in Tokyo on May 25. Craig Valentine is like the Jazz Master of Public Speaking. A lot of speakers know how to work magic. A few know how to explain it. But no one can share it as well as Craig Valentine. I'm sure I'll be a student of Craig Valentine for life, and here is why.


    It isn't just that Craig Valentine is an award-winning motivational speaker and speech coach, who has traveled the world helping thousands of speakers build powerful presentations and get profitable results. He was sales person of the year 3 times for a major U.S. publisher, won the Congressional Achievement Award from the United States Congress for excellence in communication, and the Distinguished Alumni Award from Johns Hopkins University, where he earned his MBA.


    It isn't just that he is one of the best motivational speakers active today, having spoken in the United States, Taiwan, Canada, Jamaica, Qatar (Doha), England, Bahamas, Hong Kong, China, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Australia giving as many as 160 presentations per year.


    It isn't just that he is the 1999 World Champion of Public Speaking for Toastmasters International, winning out of more than 25,000 contestants in 14 countries. And the author of an excellent book summarizing his method called World Class Speaking: The Ultimate Guide to Presenting, Marketing and Profiting Like a Champion, as well as a number of excellent books and audio programs.


    Craig Valentine is a good friend, a great coach and teacher, and an inspiration for anyone who wants to improve their ability to communicate in personal and professional life. His style is charismatic, but his approach is all about the tools that anyone can apply.


    If you are a sales person, he can teach you how to sell without annoying people

    If you are a teacher, he can help you keep your students engaged and interested

    If you are a speaker, he can help you present in a way that is memorable and motivating

    If you are in business, he can help you present with impact and persuade with ease

    Even if it is not your first language, he can help you communicate more effectively in English


    And you can meet Craig Valentine on his first visit to Japan this month. He will be speaking at the Toastmasters annual conference for members. However, in addition my company EMC QUEST will also be hosting Craig Valentine at a lunch presentation on How to Present with Impact and Persuade with Ease, to be held in Tokyo on Friday, May 25, 2012, at the Oakwood, Tokyo Midtown, from 11:30~13:30.

    At Craig's presentation, we will also be launching the Tokyo World Class Speaking Academy by EMC QUEST, which will provide local onsite training starting in June 2012 by William Reed and Trond Varlid, both Certified Coaches in World Class Speaking (WCS).

    1) Mastering the Art of Storytelling,

    2) Creating the Keynote Presentation,
