Who is Thomas C. Lynch?
Thomas C. Lynch is a public speaking coach, award winning inspirational speaker, author, and owner of Dream2Inspire LLC.
As a child I grew up as a shy timid person. I never liked speaking in front of groups of people because I was always concerned about what others would say or think about me. I was teased in high school for talking “proper” and I never understood why that was a bad thing. I did whatever I could to avoid speaking in class. Until one day, I had to present a prepared speech for a college speech class. I was a nervous wreck. My palms were sweaty and my heart was racing. I thought I was going to faint when it was my turn to speak. I was so worried about what my classmates would think about me. What if I mess up? What if I sound funny? How can I get out of this? When I finished my speech I couldn’t believe it was finally over.
To my surprise, my teacher and classmates gave me constructive feedback and my strongest skills appeared to be that I was poised, confident, and articulate with my words. Eventually after completing several speech assignments, I learned that I actually uncovered an interest in public speaking. I wanted to be an inspirational speaker. I started following speakers like Tony Robins, Les Brown, and Eric Thomas. I saw what they were doing and how they impact so many lives. I wanted to be like them.
I started reading more books about public speaking. I competed and won in several speech contests. I was pursuing public speaking and training to help others develop their communication skills. Earlier in my life I was so afraid to speak in public, but I finally discovered a way to have fun with public speaking so that it doesn’t have to be frightful. Dream2Inspire LLC was created to teach you how to have fun with public speaking so you can develop your communication skills. I truly believe learning the power of public speaking can transform your professional and personal life!
