 Three YouTube Videos Featuring Kyle Telling You His Story Himself.

Part 1

Born and raised in Aberdeen in Scotland, Confidence by Design founder Kyle Murtagh is using his real-life experience to help transform the confidence and public speaking skills of other business professionals.

While studying Psychology at the University of Strathclyde, Kyle hit something of a crossroads in his life and began asking himself the question that so many students face – what comes next?

With no real plan, Kyle began to throw himself into a variety of vocations to try and find his perfect fit. In the process, he stumbled across the Glasgow Speaker’s Club. Curiosity piqued after gaining an interest in motivational speakers online, he went along to his first meeting, full of hope that this would be the path he was seeking.


Except, it didn’t quite come as naturally as he wanted it to...


The Early Days...


Part 2 



The first time Kyle spoke at the club was on the very first night – palms sweating, voice faltering, it wasn’t the shining debut he had hoped for. But, the adrenaline he felt while he was in front of all those people stayed with him!

So he kept going back, getting gradually better each time and spent his spare time watching other speakers to glean tips and tricks to improve even further.


Fast forward three years and Kyle is one of Scotland’s most exciting public speakers!


Having become a two-time national public speaking champion, run workshops for companies around Scotland, and even his own sell-out events, it is safe to say that Kyle has answered that question he asked at university.

Part 3 

 Kyle's goals for the future are ambitious – to become the World Champion of Public Speaking, to become a prominent and respected keynote speaker around the world, and to position ‘Confidence by Design’ as the leading presentation skills company in the UK.

Kyle passionately believes he can help anyone struggling with their public speaking skills precisely due to his own journey.


He got where he is due to determination, hard work, and investing time – as a result, he can provide you with the tools to make long-lasting changes to your presentations, and indeed your overall confidence.
