Pres Vasilev is the 2013 World Champion of Public Speaking. He is the President of Pres Says, Inc., a company specializing in training business leaders and sales teams to achieve instant influence and sales success.
When he was a small boy back in Bulgaria, Pres Vasilev read a book that sparked his dream to come to America.
In 2002, his dream came true. Pres came alone, but he brought big goals, bold dreams, and a sexy accent. Yes, the first question he faced was always, “Where’re you from?” He struggled with English, but sharing his story helped him win friends fast and quickly cope with the culture shock.
Three years later, Pres Vasilev was due for another adventure. He took the job that changed his life – selling children’s books door to door. From house to house, Pres pedaled his bike and peddled his books. When people asked him, “Where’re you from?” Pres told them his story. Swayed by the power of books to spark dreams, many became his customers, turning Pres Vasilev into a top producer.

What People Say About Pres
“Prior to working with Pres Vasilev, I had competed for seven and a half years in public speaking competitions, trying to achieve my dream of making it to the Finals of the World Championship of Public Speaking. I was met with frustration and not being able to break through.
All that changed when I started to work with Pres. He not only was extremely easy to work with, but he also helped me craft a story and a message that not only resonated with who I was but with a universal audience as well. I’m happy to say that by working with Pres, I finally reached the Finals. If you’re looking for a storytelling expert, I highly recommend that you call Pres Vasilev.”
