Over a 4-day period in December 2022, a group of people who stammer (PWS) came together to smash their fear of stammering and transform their old speech patterns.
The McGuire India Programme successfully conducted its first post-pandemic course in Navi Mumbai, a suburb of Mumbai. New students and members of the program came from many corners of India spanning a broad age group, diverse backgrounds, and varying degrees of stammering. But each of them had a common goal – to be the person they were meant to be without holding back.
The new students worked hard to learn new tools and techniques and apply them in the real world. The anxiety and fear remarkably transformed into big beautiful smiles on their faces by end of Saturday (see picture).
Our members turned up to reignite their internal 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 (more information about this is included below).
Overall, it was a very productive course with passionate instructors, disciplined new students, coaches and committed graduates. It was such an awesome experience. Well done to Rishabh Panchamia, and Dev Mehta for their brilliant course instruction. Staff trainer Matthew Richardsons’ dedication and love to help PWS in India and across the world is awe-inspiring. Thank you Matthew for empowering and giving a voice to so many PWS in the region. It is remarkable to see the region so vibrant and resilient, especially after the disruption unravelled by the pandemic. The proof is in the pudding.
