Erwin Parengkuan surely is not an unfamiliar name in the world of master of ceremony in Indonesia. He started his career in the entertainment industry since 1989 and he first met his emcee partner Becky in early 90’s also in the same industry.
He and Becky then started TalkInc (CBN-ID000000448) exactly 14 years ago, spending only 1 year for the preparation. At that time, they believed that it was a good momentum to share their experiences about communication, especially for those who want to learn more about becoming a presenter or emcee as there were very limited resources to learn
and improvising skills in those particular field.
“The joy of sharing” is the same values which they uphold until now and became one of the base of the business sustainability. The first year of developing the business, they did what every entrepreneur did, which was heavy promotion and improvement without neglecting quality.
Since they have already made names as entertainers, the hardest part was to manage clients’ expectation. It’s not about mere communication and presenting an event, because there are real components of public speaking itself. How to gain trust and recognition was their main struggle. Now, TalkInc has many communication programs including public speaking, business presentation and personal branding.
Erwin believes in helping people to live their true potential, especially when it comes to expressing themselves. The family man who enjoys cooking and gardening happily shared that according to the data compiled in 2017, so far his company has become the home of total 13,000 alumni, both from regular class and in-house training.
These days, Erwin is more focused on becoming facilitator and coach in helping many leaders, business owners, government officials, political leaders in group or private sessions, seeing them getting better in communication.
