Why you should step up the ladder at Speakers Corner

Inspiring Speaker

Adam Wells, wannabe inspiring speaker arrived to Speakers Corner four hours earlier than the rest of the Inspiring Speakers group. Their challenge was to deliver a 'rant' to hecklers and beyond, but Adam's problem was, he just didn't seem to have a message - just an impeding sense of dread. Here's what happened when Adam climbed the step ladder...

 

A trip to Speakers Corner is one of the challenges we put to the participants on Ginger's Inspiring Speakers Programme. It's designed to help them step into their Fearlessness, to bring out their passion and to encourage them to fight for what they believe in. Here's what Adam learned from his experience:

Despite his trepidation, Adam got what was probably the biggest cheer of the day from his Speakers Corner rant. He was natural, authentic, strong - and was definitely not going to be defeated by the hecklers. And even more than that, he managed to deliver a message with heart and soul, that was sure to benefit his audience. Well done Adam!

More reflections on Adam's experience in his Magical Life blog.
