Praveen Wadalkar, 40
Digital entrepreneur, co-founder and CEO of Techizer Tech Solutions. A motivational speaker and corporate public speaking coach, he is a nine-time International TEDx speaker.

Although Pravin Wadalkar runs an IT firm, he has a degree in pharmacy. While that is one side to him, his passion for motivating people to become better public speakers is what sets him apart. He started Speak and Grow to help others communicate effectively. The idea came to him three years ago, when at college, his 60-minute speech was recorded by his driver. Wadalkar wanted to understand how the students had reacted. To his dismay, he found that it had garnered no reaction. He realised, while you may have a great story to tell, how you tell it is important. Wadalkar now teaches students and corporates public speaking, using live-debate competitions, story-telling, impromptu speaking and feedback-evaluation.

Available for: Motivational sessions on public speaking
Charges: 90-minute one-on-one coaching at R12,000
