Speak Up And Shine!

Speaker Shola Kaye is on a mission to help people achieve their best selves and be confident,  courageous communicators in the workplace. Shola is also an international entertainer, having performed on four continents,  and is confident, entertaining and energetic on stage. Many years ago, however, when she was working in corporate positions in New York and London, Shola sometimes lacked the courage to speak up in meetings and it meant she wasn’t always able to show her full potential.

Shola helps individuals communicate effectively in the workplace. Having the ability, courage and confidence to be your true self means you’ll never think “what if”. This diversity of voices and ideas helps organisations become more successful. Teams become innovative, creative and build better solutions. Even if you already feel confident speaking up during a meeting or making a presentation, award-winning speaker Shola Kaye is able to help you become even better. She shares practical tools, easy-to-use frameworks and insightful advice. Shola also delivers keynote presentations on networking and entrepreneurship.

She is the author of two books: the soon to be published “Speak Up On The Spot” which helps readers become more effective during meetings and difficult situations and  “How To Be A D.I.V.A. At Public Speaking” which uses accessible examples from the world of pop music to help staff become better presenters. Speaker Shola Kaye also provides engaging and creative corporate training, executive and employee coaching, workshops and online programmes.

Shola has an undergraduate degree from Cambridge University, trained to be a teacher at Oxford University and as a speaker she is interactive, humourous and one-of-a-kind. She studied stand-up comedy and her keynote topics are unique and truly entertaining. Shola customizes her keynotes to fit the exact audience and event, and is ready to transform your audience and help you achieve success.
