Speakers Connect is an initiative of Bolaji Femi a renowned public speaker, trainer and entrepreneur of repute. The idea was to create a hub for existing and budding speakers to network, share knowledge and become better at what they do. It is this idea that birthed the Speakers Academy which held her maiden edition between 4th & 5th January 2018. The launch of the Speakers Academy is to teach those exploring a career in professional speaking (people who want to turn their passion for Speaking into a full-time profession).
The first edition was a huge success, over fifteen (15) participants registered and attended several intensive labs, a deep-dive on speaking business, marketing, eloquence, ethics and other topics that helps professional speakers grow their business and perfect their speaking craft.
The impact of the Speakers Academy can only be explained through the overwhelming request received by the association from people who are either willing to join Speakers Connect (which has become the umbrella body for public speakers) or ready to attend the next edition of the Speakers Academy which comes up in the 2nd quarter of the year 2018. Details of the next Academy will be made available in due course.
Below are pictures from the 1st edition of The Speakers Academy.
