In this episode, I explored discovering a passion for communication and Brandon Kumarasamy's journey to becoming a communication coach. We discussed the importance of taking time to invest in oneself, ways to supplement one's life, and the structure of a speech or presentation. We also discussed the power of exceptional communication, the importance of tonality, and the use of filler words. Finally, I shared tips for improving tonality and communication skills, such as the 'random word exercise' and 'endless gaze exercise'. All of these topics were discussed in order to help listeners become better communicators and build confidence.

In this conversation, the speaker explains how he began his business, Master Talk, which is focused on providing better communication advice than what is currently offered by PhDs. He disagrees with the idea that one should focus on the fear of communication, as he believes it leads to anxiety and a lack of confidence. Instead, he suggests that people should focus on practicality in their communication and be accountable for their results. In addition, he emphasizes that communication experts should be tied to results in order to be successful, rather than relying on a salary provided by a university. Ultimately, he believes that his business provides more effective communication advice than what is currently available.

Brendan was talking about his obsession with communication, which he discovered through participating in case competitions. He was motivated by the desire to get a job, and his competitive nature meant that he was determined to win. He also took it upon himself to coach other students on how to speak, as he had seen that many of the students he recruited were smart, but not great at communication. His obsession with communication really came to the surface when in his last semester of college, one of the students he had coached asked him how he had learnt to speak. He realized then that he wanted to teach other people how to speak.
