The speaker who can not speak


Sourena Vasseghi has cerebral palsy, a condition that means he has limited motor skills, poor coordination and a severe speech impediment. But despite these challenges, Vasseghi has developed a successful career as an author and motivational speaker.
“I am the speaker who can’t speak and the writer who can’t write,” he said.

Shortly after graduating from business school in 2001, Vasseghi realised he had the skills to communicate with people and make a difference in their lives he was inspired to launch The Sourena V Group, an executive coaching and business development company.

A key element of the company’s business is the speaking double act that Vasseghi has forged with Chris Stevenson, a gym owner and executive coach. The pair work together, on stage, with Stevenson interpreting the words of his speaking partner for their audience.
