It's Our Honor To Guide & Support You

Lynn Kirkham Founder of Yes You Can Speak


Founder of Yes You Can Speak

I’ve been where you are. 

Trembling at the thought of telling my story. 

Horrified to stand in front of a crowd expecting inspiring words.

Afraid to embrace my own voice and share my message with the world. 

Whether it’s an interview for your next job, the boardroom at work, or a stage in front of thousands. We're here to help professionals like you, overcome the fear that holds them back from fully stepping into their executive power. 

But all of that changed on a trip to India ~


where, taking care of 36 “voiceless” orphans, I committed to helping as many people as possible find their voice and speak with confidence for the rest of my life.


From shy wallflower to woman on a mission -  I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to unleash thousands of brilliant voices, empowering them to command whatever stage they’ve been given.
