  • Who am I?

    The Chatterchief!

    My name is Shil Shanghavi.


    I specialise in harnessing the fear of public speaking.


    I can show you how to control your nerves, craft stories and present with confidence whenever you speak.


    Having felt the fear myself, it holds a special personal significance. I have lived with a stutter my whole life, which is why I have dedicated my career to working with others overcome the anxiety I once struggled with.


    I have worked across retail, account management and senior business development roles that have required their fair share of nerve-racking presentations and speaking obligations. My experiences taught me exactly how to harness these nerves by using an array of techniques to develop confidence and ensure the delivery of an engaging presentation.


    Equally, I have failed at numerous presentations! These failures motivated me to develop a simple, powerful toolkit to make public speaking a comfortable and enjoyable experience.




    I am a TEDx Speaker and a Speaker Coach for TEDxPerth.


    I have significant experience in the art of public speaking, regularly performing as the keynote speaker at numerous events and facilitating corporate presentations. Crafting and delivering speeches on a variety of topics is one of my areas of expertise and some of my most notable keynotes include:



    Missed Opportunities

    This popular keynote poses one question - how many opportunities are you prepared to miss as a result of avoiding to speak in public? This talk is suitable for all audiences.


    Mob Justice

    This powerful story provides a novel perspective of living in a developing country and the challenges which come with it, providing a stark comparison to the life we live in Australia. With a focus on accepting challenges through broader thinking, this talk is suitable for a variety of audiences.


    From Fear to Acceptance

    Through my own journey, my TEDx Talk challenged the audience to shift their mindset around some of the fears of public speaking. This talk has a focus on stepping out of your comfort zone and can be delivered to a variety of audiences.



    I also had the privilege of presenting to Lark Doley DTM, the Toastmasters Global International President with my speech titled Eliminating Fear.


    I am a Toastmasters qualified competent communicator, the former President of Young Guns Toastmasters, and graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Commerce specialising in Marketing and Management.


  • Reviews

    Here is what some of my clients have to say about my coaching and performances

    "I had the pleasure of having Shil deliver a captivating talk on "Missed Opportunities" to the 35 members of my Finance team. Shil's style and story telling is exceptional. The challenges that he has overcome, to become the confident presenter that he is, are not insignificant and that story in itself is extremely motivating. I have had several of my team come to me imparting their appreciation for bringing someone of Shil's caliber to speak and how it had made them reflect on their own situations. Obviously I have no hesitation in recommending Shil to people looking for a skilled speaker or to develop public speaking skills themselves"

    "Shil was my speaker coach for TEDxPerth 2018 and we nailed it! Shil assisted my message and delivery to be succinct whilst enhancing it’s impact. Thanks Shil, you’re a master!"

    "Powerful, genuine, engaging - these words cannot even begin to fully describe Shil’s talk at TEDxATOPerth. Through sharing his own story, he inspired us all to walk the path to become the very best speaker everyone of us can be. From fear to acceptance - it is a journey for us all.
    Not only that - Shil was a speaker coach for our TEDx event, selflessly giving his time and experience to help us improve our talks. The success of the day and the overwhelmingly positive comments from the audience certainly adds to his credit."

    "Shil is remarkable! He has the ability to get to know you and your topic in a very short space of time and give you relevant and simple tips to keep you calm and focused when presenting. Shil understands and empathises with the challenges most of us have in regards to public speaking as he too faces challenges and thoroughly overcomes them. He is an exceptionally engaging speaker and an authentic and encouraging public speaking coach"
