    Get the professional edge

    I recommend the ASP program wholeheartedly. Manoj created a positive and friendly environment. The content of the course was easy to follow and well structured. It was tailored in a way to boost the confidence of everyone in the class and build our courage and competence to stand in front of a crowd and talk.  There was a good balance of excellent teaching, practice sessions, assessments, handouts, videos and slides.   He created a tailored framework built based on his own research, experience and learning which is easy to understand and implement for everyday use. He was engaging, precise and concise. It was clear he had a vast array of experience and knowledge.  He was able to keep the attention of everyone in the classroom for the entire duration of the training. Because of the transformation, I saw in others and especially myself, I recommend the program to anyone who wants to have a professional edge, build their confidence in speaking and become better communicators in a very short time.

    Must-attend learning experience

    Accelerated Speaking Program by Mr.Manoj Vasudevan is a must-attend learning experience for anyone who would like to discover and attain their full potential. During the six-week course, Mr Manoj covers various topics from the importance of physical traits like Stage presence, body language, voice control to the mental traits of connecting emotions and logic with credible information including real-life examples. The course also includes practice sessions as well as examples of exemplary talks to develop the above abilities. Mr Manoj comes across as a professional speaker who understands and communicates well the nuances of techniques for making an effective speech by adopting various structures and is able to build the confidence and self-belief in the trainees in the course of 6 weeks. I strongly encourage everyone to attend this course and apply its principles which will transform your life as it has done for me. Achutha Pai, Senior Manager

    Attention to each and every individual

    The most important thing I like about ASP is that it was very practice-orientedThe structure of the program was very clear and easy to follow. During each session of the program, we implemented what we learned from the previous sessions.  This practice-based approach is excellent and I was able to see improvement by the end of the program. Manoj was very interactive and charismatic throughout the program.  He gave attention to each and every individualand highlighted specific areas for improvement. That was very impressive. One more important aspect was that the tips provided during the class were easily actionable in my professional and personal life. I would definitely recommend this program for those who would love to be a better speaker, presenter or communicator.  The reason is that I can see the significant improvement I had by the end of this program in terms of self-confidence, the way I structure my speech and engage the audience. Before attending ASP, one of my major flaws was with engaging the audience.  ASP provided me with very simple tips and tricks to engage the audience.  This was one of my key takeaways from this program. If you have any other programs in the future, please do let me know. Thanks once again for a fabulous ASP program.

    Brilliant Course

    The training value is visible every time I apply the new knowledge I learned. It is amazing how easy it is for me to be a better speaker and be more confident as a speaker. On top of it, it is actually more fun than ever before to speak and even try things out.  What makes it a brilliant course? The toolset and techniques you get into your hands are powerful for all situations. You also get to practice the learnt topics in front of a camera and get valuable feedback. The toolset guides and prepares you for different situations and goes beyond the typical communication classes elsewhere. Manoj is providing you with his experience and showing by example how to do it. The course benefits and results are quick wins and win in the long run which makes it a great investment for your future speaking and career;because communication is the top capability you need to succeed these days.

    It's Practical and Motivational

    It was a wonderful experience and I really appreciate how you sincerely wanted to help us to improve. That’s precious cause not many are willing to spend that much of effort and time in this. All they want is our MONEY :/I was a tutor myself before, and just like you, I’d do experiments and try to improve the lessons from time to time. It takes time but more importantly, it takes a sincere heart to make the efforts. I couldn’t ask for more :). Communications is pretty much my bread and butter and I wanted to be able to speak in front of a big group without any fear. I must say I like how I have paced down tremendously and try to think and organise myself before I speak. I’d recommend ASP for others because unlike the rest of the courses, it is practical and it motivates you. Theory can be learned anywhere, from a book, from a lecturer, from Youtube, but practising the theory is a totally different story and this is the place where you can improve your skills and make yourself a better speaker. I enjoyed it very much and I didn’t want it to come to an end :/

    Changed my life

    I am very glad to have gotten the chance to attend such a wonderful course. I joined this course to improve my skill and confidence in public speaking and communication. After this course, my confidence level has been improved. Now I can connect with the audience, effectively present my ideas using stories, structures and persuasion techniques. Manoj is a world-class speaker and I feel very fortunate to be trained under him. His shortcuts, techniques and methods are very practical, effective and easy to use. I have already recommended this course to my colleagues because I know how helpful this course is. It will change your life.
