PWS awaken their force in New Delhi, India!

Over a 4-day period in December, a large group of people who stammer (PWS) learnt tools and techniques to get a better control of their speech in New Delhi, India.

McGuire India Programme successfully conducted its 5th course to empower people who stammer in Gurgaon, an industrial suburb of New Delhi. New students came from many corners of India spanning a wide age group, diverse backgrounds and varying degrees of stammer. Stammer wise, it was evenly split between overts and coverts.

The anxiety and fear was palpable on the new students faces’ on Day 1 when they first arrived on the course. After working very hard in learning new tools and techniques, persevering and showing tremendous courage in pushing their comfort zones, the anxiety and fear transformed to big beautiful smiles on their faces by end of Saturday (see picture above). In Star Wars’ speak, they awakened the Force within.

Graduates in an almost equal number returned to rekindle the Force and act as coaches and wingmen to the new students. They had dedicated splits to fortify their technique and set actionable goals to climb to the next level on the stairway to eloquence. The course wouldn’t have been as successful without you grads. Thank you.

Overall, it was an amazing course with terrific instructors, disciplined new students, strict coaches and committed graduates. Thanks to everyone for attending and making it such an awesome experience. A special thanks to the venerable Chris Cooksey and amazing Paul Paluch for your dedication and love for the India region. It is amazing to see the region go from strength to strength with the most number of new students and returning grads attending this Winter course. The proof is in the pudding.  Click here to see the transformation in Pravin, one of the graduates from the Dec 2015 course.

One of the recent graduates commented: 

Stammering can definitely be controlled. No need for me to feel helpless anymore because the McGuire Programme works!!

Another recent graduate said:

I can say what I want to say when I want to say…unlike before. Feels simply amazing!

A returning graduate from the 2014 course commented:

I have been through more than 5 speech therapies and improvement courses, but there is nothing that can come close to what the MGP offers. MGP liberated me from much pain and suffering due to my stammer.

The McGuire Programme awakens the force within. It is the #1 Programme in the world that empowers PWS to take control of their speech and help them achieve a better quality of life. There is no other programme out there that brings PWS together the way the MGP does!

For those of you interested in learning about the MGP and attending a session in Summer 2016, please note that the course is planned from June 1st – June 5th 2016 in either Bengaluru or New Delhi. The final venue will be announced soon.
