I’m delighted to announce that my speech coaching client, Hakki Akdeniz, has been named one of The Top 10 Most Popular TED Talks in 2022.
If you haven’t seen the inspiring story of Hakki’s journey as a 21 year old penniless, homeless, Turkish immigrant in NYC to successful entrepreneur, philanthropist and advocate for the homeless, I urge you to do so. Hakki’s presentation has succeeded in capturing the attention and admiration of more than 2 million viewers with his heartfelt presentation.
It was my pleasure to work with Hakki, not a native English speaker, to shape his story and give him the tools to become such a highly effective speaker.
While some people may seem to be born as great public speakers, most work hard and make use of resources like a speaking coach to become effective communicators.
