ENGAGING GOKE ILESANMI AS YOUR CORPORATE EMCEE

CORPORATE EMCEE PROFILE OF GOKE ILESANMI

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
It is difficult, if not impossible, to achieve effective communication and persuasion without entertaining your audience. Keeping your audience interested and involved by entertaining them is essential because you need their full attention to be able to disseminate your information.

Listening is hard work, especially at conferences, where people attend seminars lasting many hours. This is why individuals and corporate organisations now engage the services of stand-up comedians to complement (guest) speakers’ communication entertainment or completely entertain the audience in case (guest) speakers cannot entertain with their presentation. To minimise cost, those who can function as emcee/comedian are often engaged by organisations.

However, due to global economic downturn with its attendant business collapse and loss of jobs, most audience members do not find jokes funny because they are too sad to laugh. Such people need to be seriously, psychologically and intellectually motivated to be happy.

Therefore, organisations now need more than just an emcee and/or a comedian or the two-in-one emcee/comedian, but emcee/motivational/intellectual/comic speaker (four-in-one) to offer audience all-encompassing entertainment. The emcee/motivational/intellectual/comic speaker is somebody who can professionally coordinate proceedings, tell jokes and psychologically and intellectually motivate the audience, thus carrying everybody along.

In short, by international standards, modern-day corporate emcees must be professionals who can offer motivational, intellectual and comic entertainment in addition to the major emcee requirement of oratorical competence.

To entrench this all-round entertainment, modern-day emcees must go through courses in motivational speech, intellectual development and (corporate) humour guidelines, among others.

Professionals condemn the ignorant use of off-colour, intellectually-valueless or abusive jokes in an intellectual corporate setting by non-professional emcees or comedians, all in a bid to entertain the audience.

GOKE ILESANMI, a Professional Public Speaker, Motivational Speaker and Language/Communication Specialist, is a perfect blend of the all-round professional competence prescribed for a modern-day corporate emcee.

COMMENTS OF PAST PARTICIPANTS ABOUT THE COURSE
(1) The course has been an eye-opener to my aspiration as a public speaker.
The course contents and delivery methods are highly impressive.  Within the short time that I have spent, I have been exposed in my organisation, because, it gives me courage in my interactions. Without people being told, I am now the focus person whenever we have a programme. This stimulates me to read wide.

Mr. Goke Ilesanmi’s methods of teaching Public Speaking need to be introduced to those who have undergone Basic Communication Studies to enable them to perform effectively.

I therefore recommend that it is a course worthy of spending time to do.

Comments from my in-house training at QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja in March 2012

(3) After attending the course, I now understand that every aspect of life requires effective communication for the achievement of expected results. I learnt in the course that the English we speak in Nigeria is not acceptable internationally and something drastic needs to be done, including training of this kind.

I now understand proper use of English, body language, mode of presentation, etc. I hereby recommend this course to all that matter in the Nigerian society and many that still believe they know much as I had thought before undergoing the training. I look forward to a future refresher course.
-Architect Seyi Oni, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08037037515

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(4) This course is an eye-opener. It has shown me how English language is daily misused in Nigeria as well as steps towards speaking and writing Standard British English.

The course has also given me the confidence I need to forge ahead in my career presentations which daily are part of my professional life.
I now know that speakers are not born but are made through calculated and tested professional procedures practised with time.
-Architect Aderopo Joseph, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08037862643

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(5) It is a comprehensive course that exposes one to day-to-day mistakes in Nigerian English. It is a must for anyone that wants to stand out in public speaking and business presentations, especially politicians, professionals, etc.

I will also advise that those in the media should attend this course so that they can correct the errors they spread to the public every day. Mr. Goke Ilesanmi is a genius. I advise him to keep up the good work.
-Architect David Idowu, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08039687578

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(6) I never believed I could stand up and speak in public without fear or being short of words. But I now speak confidently. Thanks to Gokmar Communication Consulting for organising this 4-Saturday “EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AND BUSINESS PRESENTATION COURSE”.

I strongly recommend this course to those of you still finding it difficult to speak in public. After attending the programme, you will never remain the same again.
Mrs. Sowemimo Folake (08133218821)

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(7) It is incredible! This is a University of Communication opened by the language and communication guru himself, Mr. Goke Ilesanmi to get the world out of the enclosure of public speaking and business presentation challenges.

After the course, my goal of becoming an exceptional Motivational Speaker has now been achieved because of the extensive motivational speaking training received during the comprehensive course. I advise those who want to excel in life to attend this multipurpose programme.
-Okechukwu Augustine (08033437277)

……………………………………………………………………………………………

(8) This programme has brought out the action in me by helping me to miraculously eliminate my public speaking fear. I hereby recommend the course to anybody that is ready to achieve enduring career or business success.

(9) You are exceptionally brilliant. How can one attain your type of competence in English Language and Communication? You need to find a way of educating as many Nigerians as possible on the shortcomings of the type of English we speak and its global implication. Please endeavour to write a dictionary and reflect some peculiarities of English spoken in Nigeria.

THEME:BECOMING AN EXCEPTIONAL PUBLIC SPEAKER AND BUSINESS PRESENTATION EXPERT”

 

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

There are three things you need to sell yourself in life and reach the peak of success. These are: COMPETENCE, LIKEABILITY and LUCK. While competence and likeability will almost always deliver “luck” to you, one potent instrument that is very critical to your being able to advertise your competence and become likeable and “lucky” is the POWER OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION, especially excellent public speaking and presentation skills. This is why an average but articulate and confident candidate often outshines brilliant but inarticulate candidates at an oral job interview.

Employees: More than ever before, people are now being increasingly called upon to present their information publicly to co-workers, customers, etc. To get ahead, you must make presentation. Being an excellent presenter will enhance your business, career and social life.

Organisations: Organisations from time to time make presentations to existing and prospective customers to sustain and increase their customer base. This means that if your staff cannot display enviable oral (and written) communication skills, your business is paying the price in lost time, lost customers and lost revenues.

Politicians: As a politician, for instance, you need to master the art of effective public speaking and persuasive communication to succeed because you must be able to convince the electorate and even win opposition over during electoral campaigns so that they can vote for you.

Barack Obama: If President Barack Obama was able to win election without resorting to rigging, and became the first Black President in theUnited States of America because of his skills of logical presentation, didactic articulation and linguistic simplicity and creativity, then it means YOU TOO can achieve your goal in life through exceptional public speaking and presentation skills.

Invitation: You are therefore invited to our “EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AND BUSINESS PRESENTATION COURSE” at GOKMAR COMMUNICATION CONSULTING, 2/4, Esomo Close, Opposite St. Leo Catholic Church Second Gate/White House Hotel, off Toyin Street, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.

COMMENTS OF PAST PARTICIPANTS ABOUT THE COURSE

(1) The course has been an eye-opener to my aspiration as a public speaker.
The course contents and delivery methods are highly impressive.  Within the short time that I have spent, I have been exposed in my organisation, because, it gives me courage in my interactions. Without people being told, I am now the focus person whenever we have a programme. This stimulates me to read wide.

Mr. Goke Ilesanmi’s methods of teaching Public Speaking need to be introduced to those who have undergone Basic Communication Studies to enable them to perform effectively.

I therefore recommend that it is a course worthy of spending time to do.

(2) The course is really a guide to success in any career or profession.   I will suggest the training should be regular.

Mr. Goke Ilesanmi, the Co-ordinator of this course is a Professor of Communication, a force to be reckoned with. So this course is recommended to all those who want to succeed in life, business or career.

Comments from my in-house training at QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja in March 2012

(3) After attending the course, I now understand that every aspect of life requires effective communication for the achievement of expected results. I learnt in the course that the English we speak in Nigeria is not acceptable internationally and something drastic needs to be done, including training of this kind.

I now understand proper use of English, body language, mode of presentation, etc. I hereby recommend this course to all that matter in the Nigerian society and many that still believe they know much as I had thought before undergoing the training. I look forward to a future refresher course.
-Architect Seyi Oni, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08037037515

(4) This course is an eye-opener. It has shown me how English language is daily misused in Nigeria as well as steps towards speaking and writing Standard British English.

The course has also given me the confidence I need to forge ahead in my career presentations which daily are part of my professional life.
I now know that speakers are not born but are made through calculated and tested professional procedures practised with time.
-Architect Aderopo Joseph, QuaDitect Consultants, Maitama, Abuja. 08037862643

(5) It is a comprehensive course that exposes one to day-to-day mistakes in Nigerian English. It is a must for anyone that wants to stand out in public speaking and business presentations, especially politicians, professionals, etc.

I will also advise that those in the media should attend this course so that they can correct the errors they spread to the public every day. Mr. Goke Ilesanmi is a genius. I advise him to keep up the good work.

(6) I never believed I could stand up and speak in public without fear or being short of words. But I now speak confidently. Thanks to Gokmar Communication Consulting for organising this 4-Saturday “EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING AND BUSINESS PRESENTATION COURSE”.

I strongly recommend this course to those of you still finding it difficult to speak in public. After attending the programme, you will never remain the same again.

(7) It is incredible! This is a University of Communication opened by the language and communication guru himself, Mr. Goke Ilesanmi to get the world out of the enclosure of public speaking and business presentation challenges.

After the course, my goal of becoming an exceptional Motivational Speaker has now been achieved because of the extensive motivational speaking training received during the comprehensive course. I advise those who want to excel in life to attend this multipurpose programme.

(9) You are exceptionally brilliant. How can one attain your type of competence in English Language and Communication? You need to find a way of educating as many Nigerians as possible on the shortcomings of the type of English we speak and its global implication. Please endeavour to write a dictionary and reflect some peculiarities of English spoken in Nigeria.
