Principal Trainer Azmi Shahrin

Azmi Shahrin - Public Speaking Coach & Trainer
Azmi Shahrin, BA (Hons), M Econs, DTM, Certified Trainer (PSMB)

Azmi Shahrin was born in Ipoh in 1970 and received his early education at St. Michael’s Institution, Ipoh and Malay College Kuala Kangsar. He won a Shell Scholarship to further his studies at the University of Kent, United Kingdom where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Economics. He subsequently obtained a Master’s degree in Economics from the University of Malaya (2009) and he is currently a PhD candidate at the same university. He has been a member of MENSA since 1989. Azmi has had more than a decade’s working experience in managing marketing communications, distribution channels and product branding with several companies including Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn. Bhd. and Maxis Communications Bhd. However, destiny was calling and in 2003 Azmi quit his well paid job to become a full-time trainer.

Azmi owes the turning point of his life to Toastmasters. In 1998, he joined Extol Toastmasters Club to sharpen his public speaking and communication skills. He was President of the club in 2005-2006. He was also instrumental in the founding of Kelab Pidato Perdana (a Bahasa Malaysia public speaking club) where he served as President in 2004-2005 and is currently the Chief Trainer. In 2007-2008, Azmi was Governor of Division W (of District 51 of Toastmasters International) and had the responsibility of overseeing 32 clubs. He was also a trainer with the Toastmasters Leadership Institute. He has won many prizes in speech contests over the years and awards for excellent leadership and dedicated service, such as the Division C Toastmaster of the Year 2004-2005 award. In 2006, Azmi achieved Toastmasters’ highest award which carries the title of “Distinguished Toastmaster” (DTM). All these enabled Azmi to launch and excel at his new career as a public speaker and public speaking trainer. Azmi is also a Certified Trainer with Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad (PSMB).

In the past 10 years as full-time trainer, Azmi has conducted training for the private/corporate sector, the government sector, educational establishments as well as members of the public. He has trained over 11,000 adults and students. While he specializes in public speaking and presentation skills, he is also competent in related areas such as communication skills, interpersonal skills, negotiation skills, English language skills and leadership skills. Azmi is currently the Principal Trainer of ProSkills Trainers. He also consults for several other training providers. Please refer to list of clients below.

Azmi’s ambition is to make effective public speaking and communication a reality for Malaysians. He is inspired and encouraged by the positive feedback of his participants and happy that he is finally touching real lives.
