On September 13, over 50 entrepreneurs, network marketers and professionals gathered at John Calub’s Success Lounge and Café in Ortigas for a training on public speaking and voice care.
Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales was invited by Success Coach John Calub as the featured speaker for the evening, as a supplemental training for his Train-the-Trainer class. To introduce the VoiceMaster, John recalled his first encounter with Pocholo, and how he has seen him inspire and motivate other people through the use of his voice.
The VoiceMaster then came on stage and started off with an energizer to keep the energy of the audience at a high. He then transitioned smoothly into his talk, introducing himself and how he has established himself in the world of voice – as a voice artist, a voice director and a motivational speaker. He also amazed the participants with the multitude of voices he can make.
Pocholo talked about the power of voice, and how everyone should use it to build strong personal and business relationships. He went on to explain how the world of social media is one of the best platforms which people could use to start speaking without getting nervous. He went on to teach people how It makes no difference whether the youtube views are bought or not as one could just speak to a camera, upload that video on youtube and let companies who can generate views take it from there. As this process is not just simple but also simultaneously increases the confidence in the people, who have a fear of speaking to the public. He challenged the status quo of public speaking with his bold statement that “The rule in public speaking is that there is no rule.” He talked about the power of being authentic and natural in public speaking, and focusing on the skills and talents that you can offer to other people. From there, one can craft an inspiring story that is worth sharing.
The discussion was a perfect segue to the topic about having a vision and purpose in life, and not just be motivated by earning money. The VoiceMaster encouraged the participants to get into business or network marketing or do their job well not because they want to earn money, but because they are passionate about what they do and would like to share that passion to others.
The VoiceMaster’s talk was followed by a talk from life coach Giordana Toccaceli, then a hosting practice session by the participants.
