    How a shy guy like me became a well-renowned speaker

    How a shy guy like me became a well-renowned speaker

    Shyness can be a thief of Joy, Purpose and fulfilment, yet, there are  exceptions. And this happens when your passion and purpose are more prominent than any shyness you can ever have. This is the case with my  guest on the show today.  David was an extremely shy and timid young man. Still, when purpose called in the form of speaking and training others to speak and to lead exceptionally, his shyness took the back bench and he showed forth his oratory excellence to the awe of his audience.   



    About David O. Lawal  

     David O. Lawal is a graduate of Biochemistry from The Federal University  of Technology, Akure (FUTA). He is a thinker and an award-winning writer, conference speaker and leadership coach. David is a co-founder of KIST! and the founder of Friendship Leadership  Institute, an organisation which powers his conferences, seminars and training programmes such as the International Masterful Speakers  Masterclass (an international masterclass where David and other speakers and trainers from the UK, USA, Canada, S/Africa, Cameroon, Ghana and  Nigeria train professionals and corporate executives—from around the continent—to become certified orators and efficient leaders through the mastery of precise and powerful communication skills). 



    David is the winner of the prestigious IDW Essay Contest (2016) and has won several leadership awards. David consults for businesses and corporate organisations. He is a favourite resource person for government establishments like the National Library of Nigeria and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). He is the serving Public Relations Officer for over 200 facilitators of the NYSC  Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development programme in Oyo  State, Nigeria.



    As one of the fastest-rising and highly sought-after  professional conference speakers in Africa, David has enjoyed the tremendous privilege of addressing an audience of about 30,000 people in one sitting (with almost a million listeners connected over the satellite and social media all over the world). He has trained over 2000  leaders and speakers. David enjoys spending time with his certified masterful speakers in the Global Masterful Speakers Network, training them, cheering them, providing honest and helpful answers to their burning questions, creating speaking platforms for them, promoting their personal brands and celebrating their wins.



    David currently lives in  Ibadan, Nigeria, with his beloved “Wifey” Aminat Oluwatosin David-Lawal—  and travels to speak at conferences, facilitate training seminars and lead coaching classes around the world.

    4:45 - What made you leave Nigeria?
    5:27 - Do you have plans when coming to Dubai?
    6:17 - What was your first reaction to realising you've been scammed?
    7:53 - Tell us a little about the struggles you had to face.
    16:51 - What was your worst day and your best day as a delivery rider?
    20:22 - What are your lessons from those experiences?

    My guest on the show today is Gift Preye Solomon a.k.a GPS. She is a  Nigerian living and doing business in Dubai. Currently a travel consultant. She started off with no job in the UAE and had to exit twice before she finally got a job as a call centre agent. She grew in her career over the years to become a supervisor.   

    An opportunity came for her to be a delivery rider and she jumped on it.  Unknown to her that this would make her a record breaker as the first and only female delivery rider in the UAE. This singular decision opened her up to numerous opportunities one of which was her being one of the  75 faces of the UAE.   

    As a Nigerian, she has done us proud and made us realize that nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it and if you believe that you can achieve the unachievable.
