Ignition takes you on a journey to unleash the speaker within you. It shows you how to apply Dineshrie Pillay’s powerful insights to overcome your fear of speaking, regain your confidence, and use the power of words to influence, impact, and inspire those around you.

I believe that speaking is an art that can be learned, not a privilege afforded to an elite few. We are all entitled to use our voices to become agents of change in our personal lives, careers and societies.

The key to achieving this is to believe that, within you, is a speaker waiting to be ignited.

As an executive coach and leadership consultant, something I have found common among people is the desire to be a confident and impactful speaker. For 11 years, I have taught people how to present in public and in their corporate careers. In that time, I pursued my own journey of becoming a public speaker. I became obsessed with finding innovative, educational and fun ways to teach and inspire people to overcome their fear of speaking and ignite the speaker within them.

In this book, you will find a step-by-step approach to transitioning from a newbie presenter to an advanced or expert speaker. You will find detailed exercises, illustrations and action steps for every stage of your speaking journey.. You will also learn how to:

  • create and present a talk that is impactful and memorable;
  • “read” your audience and respond appropriately;
  • create rapport with your audience and engage them from start to finish;
  • use your speaking area, equipment, body and voice effectively;
  • facilitate and answer questions from the audience;
  • craft different presentations for different occasions.

Regardless of whether you are a newbie presenter, or a seasoned presenter looking for more advanced speaking techniques, the insights from this book will give you the edge for your next presentation.

I hope that you will join me on this journey as I work with you to build a world full of inspired speakers. Together we can create that Ignition to your speaking ambitions!
