In 2001, Darren LaCroix, The World Champion of Public Speaking, out-spoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to win that title. That was just a benchmark. Since that victory, Darren has traveled the world demystifying the process of creating a powerful speech. He has roused audiences in faraway places like Saudi Arabia, China, Oman, Malaysia & Taiwan with his inspirational journey from chump to champ, proving anything is possible if you are willing to work for it.
Darren may have been “born without a funny bone in my body” but he possessed the desire to learn & the will-ingness to fail necessary to achieve his dream. The self-proclaimed “student of comedy” is living proof that humor is a skill that can be learned.
He’s co-author of Laugh & Get Rich & created Darren University, the ultimate online learning programs for presenters.
His trademarked program Get Paid to Speak by Next Week® has helped many speakers launch their very first checks.
