Manoj Vasudevan was not always a world-class public speaker but with consistent practice and endless determination he was able to win the coveted World Championship of Public Speaking in 2017. At one point in time he was not promoted by his organization to the next level as he lacked what it took to be at next level. That was the moment when Manoj decided to excel in Leadership and Communication skills. He quit his job, started a company and started to work on building these skills.
Manoj is a Global Next level Leadership expert. He is the CEO of Thought Expressions, an organisation that helps you take your speaking to World Class standards. He was crowned as a world champion of public speaking in 2017 leaving behind over 35,000 aspirants from 142 countries in World’s largest speech contest. He was also among the top-25 stand-up comedians at the International Comedy Festival in Hong Kong. He holds an MBA from Imperial College London and his books include international best-seller Mastering Leadership The Mousetrap Way.
