Your Three-Book Freeway to Panic-Free Communicating

Finding me, finding you book cover

This inspirational book of self-acceptance gets ‘You Right First’, for true communicating confidence depends on you being comfortable with where you’ve been, where you’re at, and where you’d like to be. 


REVIEW of this book:
"This amazing book relates to us all and affected me profoundly. Interestingly, I first met the author more than 25 years ago at a professional speakers conference and I well remember I was in awe of his enthusiasm for life, his confidence, his conversational skills, and the way he engaged with every single person in that room. Little did I know of the incredible journey he had travelled and was still coming to terms with. I can only say that this exceptional book has intensified my admiration even more for the way in which he has overcome the adversities life has thrown at him… especially the way he continues to help others make the most of who they are too. One of the best books I've read."

About the Author

Helping people communicate with Confidence!

Renowned author and speaker Laurie Smale grew up thinking he didn’t amount to much, let alone have anything meaningful to say. So, he began listening to others and their stories, believing his journey of tough social circumstance and a poor education was too shameful and insignificant for anyone to be interested in. Yet by stepping into the world of others and soaking in their wisdom, he came to understand that we can all be interesting human beings whatever our situation or station in life. Laurie Smale is now known for his unique and refreshing panic-free speaking strategies which have helped thousands to believe in themselves and attain personal and professional fulfillment by communicating with confidence.
