COMMENTS OF PARTICIPANTS AT OUR FIRST ABUJA OPEN EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AND BUSINESS PRESENTATION TRAINING JULY 4&5, 2015.
(1) Mr. Goke Ilesanmi has scored another goal for himself, thereby earning himself another trophy in our minds and hearts. He took us through Public Speaking Skills. He was eloquent, diligent and apt. It is only an expert or specialist that can do what he has done. With the training we acquired, surely, we shall make remarkable improvements in our chosen fields of specialisation and beyond. I won’t hesitate to be part of another training in the future.
-Mr. Hassan Dodo, Deputy Director, Federal Ministry of Information
(2) The course was conducted in an orderly manner. It paid key emphasis on the basics of Public Speaking and gave me the opportunity to learn a new approach to spoken words. Overall, it is recommended that anybody that has anything to do with the public should register for this all-important course. It was indeed worthwhile being part of this noble course.
– Lt. Commander Otuji Thomas Ogar of the Nigerian Navy
(3) The course was very clear and straight to the point. It has boosted my confidence and taught me the correct usage of the English language. I would like to thank Mr. Goke Ilesanmi for the very good work done. He should continue to train people not only in Nigeria but the world as a whole on how to become confident in Public Speaking.
– Mr. Jacob Augustus Bentum, a Ghananian with UNESCO
(4) This course is an eye-opener and a must-attend for career advancement. It was indeed a very remarkable experience to be there.

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
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.
Invitation: We, GOKMAR COMMUNICATION CONSULTING are therefore inviting you to attend our “EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AND BUSINESS PRESENTATION COURSE”.

COMMENTS OF PAST PARTICIPANTS ABOUT THE COURSE
(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.

(2) The course is really a guide to success in any career or profession. I will suggest the training should be regular.
Mr. Goke Ilesanmi, the Co-ordinator of this course is a Professor of Communication, a force to be reckoned with. So this course is recommended to all those who want to succeed in life, business or career.

(3) 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.

(4) It is incredible! This is a University of Communication opened by the language and communication guru himself, Mr. Goke Ilesanmi to get the world out of the enclosure of public speaking and business presentation challenges.
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.

(6) 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.
