LYNN KIRKHAM

Founder of Yes You Can Speak

I’ve been where you are.

Trembling at the thought of telling my story.

Horrified to stand in front of a crowd expecting inspiring words.

Afraid to embrace my own voice and share my message with the world.

Whether it’s an interview, a meeting, on a stage in front of thousands, or at a social gathering, we're here to help you overcome the fear that holds you back from fully stepping into your executive presence.

But all of that changed on a trip to India ~

where, taking care of 36 “voiceless” orphans, I committed to helping as many people as possible find their voice and speak with confidence for the rest of my life.

From shy wallflower to woman on a mission - I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to unleash thousands of brilliant voices, empowering them to command whatever stage they’ve been given.

My secret sauce is to continuously uncover the hidden strengths within my students so they shine brighter.

I've cultivated a unique ability

to see people in ways they’ve never been seen before, call out their gifts, and speak new life into their passions, so they can overcome the fear and doubt that makes speaking publicly terrifying.
