Last Sunday, on May 21st, 2017, I went to Kids Public Speaking event organized by Johan Speaking Academy, at Evolve Shopping Mall, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
For your information, the founder of Johan Speaking Academy, Johan Ooi and Cherry Ho, has coached and taught more than 1000 kids to speak on stage since 2014. Johan is also the 2015 Peninsula Malaysia Public Speaking Champion. Besides that, he had represented Malaysia and competed in 2015 World Championship of Public Speaking that was been held at Las Vegas. Although he finished as the semi-finalist, I think that was such a big achievement, as he was been that far, competed with the best in the world.
Johan was on the right end and Cherry was on the left end
Both of the founder, Johan and Cherry, believes that soft skills like public speaking which gives kids confidence, is essential and very important in the working world. The ability to articulate messages and share stories will help ones to inspire and impact the world. I am too, believes that the ability to speak well is a lifelong skill that you need to use throughout your career and life. Since our school system focuses so much on academy, what about the ability to speak? Hence, here's this one of the best choice that you have - Johan Speaking Academy - in order to help your kids in improving and discovering their ability to speak, talent, confidence, and more.
These kids at the academy went through a 10 weeks Kids Public Speaking programme, which gives them real life experience speaking on stage. They were also went to Little Kingdom in April for their brand ambassador programme, and now is their graduation finale at Evolve Concept Mall. Have you tried speaking at a shopping mall, in front of lots of people in public? I must say it's very impressive, watching them perform and confidently speaking on stage, and graduates there. I believe Johan Speaking Academy had helps them a lot, really, as when I heard the kids and their parent's speeches as well at the end of their graduation. It's kind of overwhelming and motivates as well. 😊
There are 135 kids graduates that day. For your information, their programme in this academy is open for kids age 7 to 12 years old, comes in English and Mandarin session. Their next intake for 10 weeks is in September 2017, so yes it's such a golden opportunity for you guys to grab the seats and take advantage of it.

As from the event, some of the kid's speeches title were like The Best Time Of My Life, Bullying, My Father My Hero, Do What Makes You Great, and more. Most of them were very engaging, and some even carried out such big topics for a little kids, like environmental problem and else. As I said earlier, it was really impressive. I still can recall what Kim, from the Bangsar's branch said that day on her speech, 'Kids learn when they have fun', and yes I agreed with that. 😊
There were also Kid's Colouring Contest, products engagement, Gratitude Messages corner, and else too so yes it's such a fun event and great for both kids and parents as well 😁
So yes I hope we all could motivates ourselves and our kids, or even our nieces and nephews, or grandchildren, to read, to learn, to confidently speaking in more than 1 language, and more. Those that they could adapt from this kind of great programme. It's definitely not such a waste, I assure you. ☺️ May you guys enjoy those pics that I enclosed as well from that event.
Thanks a lot for reading guys. May it'll be beneficial and have a great week ahead! 😊❤
