At the age of 25, Avery became the youngest world champion of public speaking in history. Remarkably, he had never given a professional speech prior to event. He competed against 30,000 people from 116 countries to win the Toastmasters World Championships, launching his career as a public speaker. He then used the same principles and strategies he learned winning the contest to other aspects in his life. His mission is to show leaders how to go from A to The in their industry.
