Why This Programme Was Created..
“I have always had a fascination with rock stars. When they go on stage, they are not just performing - they really own the stage.
When I started speaking and training, I modeled what I observed in an attempt to recreate that level of confidence. I imitated their gestures and used prepared scripts. But the more I did it, the less real it felt. I was so focused on the how that I lost the connection with my crowd. When we fake it, people know it, and that's why we feel disempowered.
It was then I realized that confidence and charisma cannot be faked. It is something that is in each and every one of us, and we possess it in our own unique way. When we can discover our confidence and charisma, they can never be taken away from us.
That's how you can create Impact.
That's how you can motivate.
And that's how you can initiate transformation.”
- Thomas Yap, creator of The Speaker’s Backbone
