Billionaire Warren Buffett said this 1 skill will boost your career value by 50 per cent. He told business students at Columbia University that this is the most valuable skill they could learn.

Do you know there is one skill you can work on in 2021 and raise your value by 50%?

That one skill is effective communication aka public speaking.

The dividends you get from sharpening your communication skills can pay you handsomely for the rest of your life. These are not my words. Hear it from billionaire Warren Buffett’s advice to Columbia University students in 2009:

“Right now, I would pay $100,000 for 10 per cent of the future earnings of any of you, so if you’re interested, see me after class.”

After the laughter subsided, he turned serious.

“Now, you can improve your value by 50 per cent just by learning communication skills-public speaking. If that’s the case, see me after class and I’ll pay you $150,000.”

Buffett should know better. He is a respected investor and fabulously wealthy. He is often quoted by media as a thought leader in wealth creation and deals out advice on personal development.

A whole package of self-enriching gains

One of the highest paid public speakers is The Real Donald before he became POTUS. Public speaking takes at most an hour. The compensation is jaw dropping.

Trump is on record to have been paid $1.5m per hour in 2007 long before he rose to presidency. He earned $25.5m from 17 speaking engagements. This is ksh.2.8bn in today’s conversion rate. He was paid all that to tell stories about how he did business. This is arguably what propelled him to the Whitehouse ten years later.
