There are three things you need to sell yourself in life and reach the peak of success. These are: COMPETENCE, LIKEABILITY and LUCK. While competence and likeability will almost always deliver “luck” to you, one potent instrument that is very critical to your being able to advertise your competence and become likeable and “lucky” is the POWER OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION, especially excellent public  speaking and presentation skills. This is why an average but articulate and confident candidate often outshines brilliant but inarticulate candidates at an oral job interview.


Employees: More than ever before, people are now being increasingly called upon to present their information publicly to co-workers, customers, etc. To get ahead, you must make presentation. Being an excellent presenter will enhance your business, career and social life.


Organisations: Organisations from time to time make presentations to existing and prospective customers to sustain and increase their customer base. This means that if your staff cannot display enviable oral (and written) communication skills, your business is paying the price in lost time, lost customers and lost revenues.


Politicians: As a politician, for instance, you need to master the art of effective public speaking and persuasive communication to succeed because you must be able to convince the electorate and even win opposition over during electoral campaigns so that they can vote for you.


Barack Obama: If President Barack Obama was able to win election without resorting to rigging, and became the first Black President in the United States of America because of his skills of logical presentation, didactic articulation and linguistic simplicity and creativity, then it means YOU TOO can achieve your goal in life through exceptional public speaking and presentation skills.

(1) The course has been an eye-opener to my aspiration as a public speaker.

The course contents and delivery methods are highly impressive.  Within the short time that I have spent, I have been exposed in my organisation, because, it gives me courage in my interactions. Without people being told, I am now the focus person whenever we have a programme. This stimulates me to read wide.


Mr. Goke Ilesanmi’s methods of teaching Public Speaking need to be introduced to those who have undergone Basic Communication Studies to enable them to perform effectively. 


I therefore recommend that it is a course worthy of spending time to do.

Comments from my in-house training at QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja in March 2012


(3) After attending the course, I now understand that every aspect of life requires effective communication for the achievement of expected results. I learnt in the course that the English we speak in Nigeria is not acceptable internationally and something drastic needs to be done, including training of this kind.


I now understand proper use of English, body language, mode of presentation, etc. I hereby recommend this course to all that matter in the Nigerian society and many that still believe they know much as I had thought before undergoing the training. I look forward to a future refresher course.

-Architect Seyi Oni, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08037037515




(4) This course is an eye-opener. It has shown me how English language is daily misused in Nigeria as well as steps towards speaking and writing Standard British English.


The course has also given me the confidence I need to forge ahead in my career presentations which daily are part of my professional life.

I now know that speakers are not born but are made through calculated and tested professional procedures practised with time.

-Architect Aderopo Joseph, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08037862643




(5) It is a comprehensive course that exposes one to day-to-day mistakes in Nigerian English. It is a must for anyone that wants to stand out in public speaking and business presentations, especially politicians, professionals, etc.


I will also advise that those in the media should attend this course so that they can correct the errors they spread to the public every day. Mr. Goke Ilesanmi is a genius. I advise him to keep up the good work.

-Architect David Idowu, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08039687578




(6) I never believed I could stand up and speak in public without fear or being short of words. But I now speak confidently. Thanks to Gokmar Communication Consulting for organising this 4-Saturday “EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AND BUSINESS PRESENTATION COURSE”.


I strongly recommend this course to those of you still finding it difficult to speak in public. After attending the programme, you will never remain the same again.

After the course, my goal of becoming an exceptional Motivational Speaker has now been achieved because of the extensive motivational speaking training received during the comprehensive course. I advise those who want to excel in life to attend this multipurpose programme.

(9) You are exceptionally brilliant. How can one attain your type of competence in English Language and Communication? You need to find a way of educating as many Nigerians as possible on the shortcomings of the type of English we speak and its global implication. Please endeavour to write a dictionary and reflect some peculiarities of English spoken in Nigeria.

Comments from my in-house training at QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja in September 2012


(11) The Public Speaking Course has made a great impact on my general knowledge of not just basic communication skills but English as a whole. It has given me greater insight on confidence and solutions to public speaking fears. It has also enhanced my knowledge of proposal writing. In general, the course is very informing and covers larger areas of English Language and communication where most of us fall short.

-Shittu Yinka Ahmed (08033500534)


(12) The course is worthwhile. It is motivational and more importantly very educative. It has revealed my deficiency has enhanced my skills of public speaking and business presentation. No doubt, I am a better and more confident speaker at the end of the course.
