Learning from the Little Master

Mumbai, October 26

SchoolEdTech company LEAD organised its third MasterClass on public speaking with former Indian international cricketer and motivational speaker Sunil Gavaskar. The session was conducted for 8 lakh+ students across LEAD’s 2000+ partner schools pan India. 

Students were thrilled with the presence of cricket’s greatest opening batsmen and widely respected television commentator, as he discussed the importance of public speaking as a life skill and how it paves the way to become an effective communicator.

He also shared his views on the role of school education in honing the public speaking skills of children, helps them overcome the fear of talking on a large platform.

He went on to sharing some thoughts on the correlation between body language and public speaking while engaging the audience with some exercises to improve speaking skills. 

The MasterClass series by LEAD is India’s first initiative to provide holistic learning to school children and an opportunity of learning from world renowned experts, something that was never available for children from smaller towns & cities.

The first MasterClass on creative writing was held with eminent author Chetan Bhagat while the second one was with Tennis ace Sania Mirza where she engaged with students on Fitness and Yoga.

Little Master Sunil Gavaskar said, “Children fear to speak out in public and the pandemic has made the situation even worse as there is lack of in-person communication. Building confidence and command over language are the most important things to be able to communicate effectively and engage with a larger audience. And this skill needs to be taught at every school, to every child right from a young age. I am happy that this unique initiative is empowering schools with the right kind of platforms to ensure overall development of children.”
