KPL is pleased to present a series of exciting author talks. Enjoy a range of talks from bestselling authors and thought leaders!

We invite you to join us for a talk with Dr. Aziz Gazipura, one of the world’s leading experts on social confidence as he discusses how to stop being too nice and worrying about what others might think.

Are you too nice? Do you find it hard to be assertive and ask for what you want? Did you know millions of people struggle with being “too nice”? Being nice can make it hard to speak up, say “no,” or do something that might upset someone. This talk will teach participants that the opposite of nice is not mean but rather real. You’ll learn how to say “no” when you want and need to, confidently ask for what you want and eliminate feelings of guilt, anxiety, and worry about what others will think.

About the Author: Dr. Aziz Gazipura is a clinical psychologist and one of the world’s leading experts on social confidence and is the founder of the Center For Social Confidence. He also has a popular podcast, Shrink For The Shy Guy. Dr. Aziz Gazipura is the author of three best-selling books, including Not Nice: Stop People-Pleasing, Staying Silent, & Feeling Guilty…And Start Speaking Up, Saying No, Asking Boldly, And Unapologetically Being Yourself.
