"Sawubona" I see you!


Chanti Niven is one of the world’s most effective Public Speaking and Presentation Coaches. Chanti has shared her own inspiring messages on many stages, including the City Gala Annual event, which is recognized as one of the most coveted speaking stages in the world. She has been chosen to Keynote for many organizations and charities, and continues to speak, albeit virtually since the advent of Covid. Many say that those who cannot make it as a speaker themselves become coaches but nothing can be further from the truth here. Chanti is in demand as a speaker but has always been passionate about helping people achieve their goals and is a natural-born teacher. She genuinely cares about people and really wants them to succeed. She holds a Masters in English and Communications and trained in Public Speaking through the Dale Carnegie Institute where she became an accredited coach. She has also been a member of Toastmasters for many years and has earned her Distinguished Toastmasters Designation, the highest award you can achieve within this organization. She has studied Human Movement Sciences, Kinesiology, Haptics, Body-language, Prosody & Vocals, Psychology, Social Psychology, Neuroscience, Business, among other subjects and continues to study these subjects to advance her skills in these areas. 


Communication skills are vital to your success in your personal and business life. If you do not know how to present yourself effectively you will reduce your chances of being noticed and remembered. Whether you interview for that job or pitch your business idea for investment, how you come across will determine how successful you will be. There are so many factors at play here. Your posture, how you walk, gesture, and speak are but a few. Most people think that your vocabulary is important. The words you choose are important as is the way you deliver them, but there are ways that you are communicating that you may not be aware of. How trustworthy do people find you to be? Will they believe you when you speak? This may not be so much about what they hear but what they read from your “energy”. We all put out signals that either draws people to us or repel them from us. Charismatic, magnetic people have special qualities that make them stand out from the rest of the pack. People are drawn to them and this automatically gives them an advantage. Whether you are directly in sales or not, you must learn how to be persuasive. It is an art that will open doors for you and bring you great wealth. Chanti Niven will teach you all that you need to know to be a captivating speaker.

What Are

You Saying?

You "speak" before you open your mouth to say a word. You most likely are not aware of how you come across and how others perceive you. The way you enter a room, walk, dress and gesture, speak louder than your words. The words you choose and how you speak adds to the picture. Learn how you can present the best version of yourself and be captivating.
Change how people think about you forever.
