Growing up in my cricket-crazy country as a teenager, I was not attracted to cricket but public speaking. I was intrigued by public speaking and the great orators who lived before me – it helped that the 16th president of the US was my all-time hero (Abraham Lincoln). While my peers played cricket, I listened to the wartime speeches of Sir Winston Churchill. My lifetime fascination with public speaking had begun.
At the age of 19 I joined The Colombo Toastmasters Club – at that time it was a CEOs club and the club had to pass a special resolution to permit a 19 year-old to join the club: at the time the age limit was 20. And so began my fascination with CEOs.
When you put “communication” and “CEO” together, you get CEO Communication. This is how the dots in my life connect, to use Steve Jobs’ terminology. And, as Jobs correctly said, our lives can only be understood backwards, but we have to live forwards.
I started YKG Associates in 2013 to pursue my passion – CEO Communication. And I am having a blast.
