Public speaker and Stutter Coach, Daniel Francis, whose claim to fame is his master sales skills, natural leadership, and effective communication. All achieved through extensive training, practice, and thousands of hours of experience. Daniel coaches people who stutter to adopt his method of mastering the art of public speaking, which is a simple and effective way of overcoming communication and speech difficulties.
Acceptance of a problem is the beginning of a solution. Some people might find reasons not to give a speech or even speak up at meetings, but Daniel encourages us to examine those excuses and ask yourself where they come from. He believes that once you realize that the source of discomfort is not in the audience or anyone else’s judgments, but rather originates from within yourself, is when you can take full control of your communication abilities.
Daniel Francis is a stern believer of looking inside oneself to get hold of the core problem. Since he dealt with stuttering his entire life, he empathizes with those experiencing the same difficulties. This is why he developed a program called, Master Your Stutter, which is a coaching program aimed to help individuals learn the strategies and techniques of public speaking in order to better one’s communication.
One of the key reasons why Daniel first took on leadership and sales positions, is to become better at the one ability that he considered to be his main weakness: speaking fluently and speaking with complete confidence. It is known to many that the only way to overcome fear is to confront it head on and rise above. That is exactly what Daniel did, as he mastered his stutter and became more confident than ever before.
“What I realized is that when someone learns the mechanics and strategy of public speaking, they are confronting all of their blocks, troubles, and insecurities they have with communicating. Once they handle those areas and practice where they struggle most, then they can truly overcome stuttering, increase their fluency while speaking, and take back control of their life.”- Daniel Francis
