I also once heard the humorous story of a certain man who travelled out of the country. He got to a store and requested to buy a towel. The store attendant who could not comprehend what he wanted due to his pronunciation said “we don’t have that sir”. On his way out of the store, the man sighted a towel. Furious, he went to pick it up and said to the attendant “this is a towel!” She replied, “a taw.uhl” you meant to say sir?
I observed that there are many individuals who have lost opportunities because they cannot pronounce English words properly. Yours might be that you are always afraid during board meetings because you cannot express yourself properly or you are a teacher whose pronunciation prowess has denied high paying jobs.
You might also be a parent whose child is just learning to speak and you want to lay a solid foundation for them by speaking properly yourself. I have had clients also come to me immediately before important media interviews just to ensure that they put their best foot forward and represent their companies well.
I created this course to help individuals grow personally and career-wise. Intentionally, I coach them with applicable examples as used in our environment. This is the major reason many of my clients prefer to learn from me rather than from non-Nigerian coaches.
My name is Temitope Dahunsi, the Director of Institute at Diction Power Communications. Diction Power was borne out of my desire to ensure that an average African effectively communicates in English Language, with a flawless intonation. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English Language and a Post Graduate Degree in Education. I have also attended several trainings on elocution and phonics. My journey into the elocution profession started in 2013 with the Institute of Certified Communicators, Lead by Charles Nkwocha. My love for the classroom and children propelled me to go further to Chelis Bookazine for certification as a Phonics Expert. I have since attended several trainings on phonics online for personal development. Others say, and I have come to agree, that I am a gifted teacher. I am an author of four (4) books with audio visuals on elocution for children. I have trained over a thousand educators through DPC's Get Trained, Get Employed; School Tours and Whatsapp online Trainings.
