Meet The Co-Founders
Andy O'Sullivan is Keynote Speaker, Award Winning Mentor and an International Best-Selling Author of 5 Books on Public Speaking
When Andy first started his career, he always struggled to get his voice heard. As a shy introvert, he struggled to speak up in meetings and avoided the distress of ever delivering a presentation. The result? He became ‘invisible’, causing his corporate career progression to stall.
Frustrated at continually seeing his less experienced, more confident colleagues receiving the opportunities and promotions because of his fear of speaking in public, led Andy on a long but exciting journey to overcoming his fear of public speaking.
Today, Andy’s many international clients benefit from this journey and his extensive 25+ years experience. With Andy as their public speaking coach, they lose their phobia of public speaking, confidently speak up in meetings, deliver presentations and grow their impact in their organisations, and attain massive career success.
Brian Guo is a multi-award winning speaker, national speech contest finalist, and multi-award winning speaking mentor
Brian never expected to become a public speaking coach. When he moved from China to London, he had a poor grasp of English and had a fear of speaking in public.
By overcoming his fear of speaking in public, and growing his confidence, he has rapidly progressed into leadership positions, gaining experience in a wide range of roles, including researcher, data analyst, project manager and consultant.
Seeing the career success he achieved by speaking up in meetings and confidently delivering presentations, Brian started to help professionals who suffered from the same fear of public speaking.
Today, Brian is a sought-after presentation coach and mentor with specialised skills in helping non-native English speakers overcoming their fear of public speaking.
At the Academy of Public Speakers, we know you are a smart, competent professional who wants to progress rapidly in your career.
In order to achieve this, you need to confidently and clearly convey your ideas, opinions and thoughts to small or large groups in both online or offline meetings.
The problem is that the moment when you need to speak or present to an audience, your lack of public speaking confidence causes you to feel butterflies in your stomach and you hear the self-doubting voice in your head.
You shy away from opportunities to speak up and present.
You feel frustrated and stuck.
We are there to help!
