Jesus Nebot, first non-native English speaker to receive the coveted annual award for his inspirational speech "Let Silence Speak"

Jesus Nebot, a Spanish keynote speaker who currently resides in Los Angeles, became the winner of the 2009 National Speakers Association (NSA) Connie award for best professional speaking skills.

Nebot is the first non-native English speaker to receive this recognition which honors speakers' platform skills and recognizes the importance for professional speakers to make immediate connection with their audiences.

His winning speech entitled "Let Silence Speak" was delivered to members of the association last March 14th, 2009 at CBS Television Studios. The selection was based on outstanding presentation skills as well as on speech value and effectiveness. The jury was composed by a distinguished panel of professional speaking coaches and trainers from the NSA, the leading organization for professional speakers. Nebot's inspirational speech hit a chord with the audience by suggesting that what we need is not more great speakers, but rather great communicators that speak less and listen more.

"The Connie" presented to Nebot is a beautiful sculptured glass award named after Constance Dean Yambert, considered the dean of American public speaking coaches with more than 35 years' experience in training platform presentation skills. She is also founder of the National Speakers Association Greater Los Angeles Chapter where she served twice as president.

Jesus has delivered Visionary Leadership and Communication trainings in over 30 American states and 10 additional countries around the world for educational, cultural, non-profit, business and civic organizations. He is a former undocumented immigrant who went from being homeless to financially free in 5 years by building a real estate company that serves the housing needs of low income families across the United States. Jesus is also the writer, director, producer and star of the Universal release feature NO TURNING BACK, winner of 23 international film festival awards.
