Caitlyn Jenner to go on speaking tour

Caitlyn Jenner is set to go on a speaking tour.

The 'I Am Cait' star - who was known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing a gender transition - will appear in five cities for the 'Unique Lives and Experiences' show, which gives women a platform to reach out to others in the United States of America and Canada.

It has not yet been confirmed what topics the 65-year-old television personality will be discussing but with the title of her speech called 'Up Close and Personal', it is likely she will open up about her life and how it has changed over the last year.

The tour will pass through Toronto, Vancouver, Denver, San Francisco and Seattle in February and fans can expect to pay around $40 for a ticket.

Caitlyn's biggest supporters could also snap up a VIP package for $500, which offers a chance to meet and have a photo with the star.

The former Olympian isn't new to public speaking but it didn't mean she wasn't nervous as she made her acceptance speech after being handed the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at this year's ESPYs.

She said at the time: "Reading my speech off of the teleprompter was a whole other story. As a dyslexic kid, my biggest fear in life was to go in front of the class and read because I just wasn't very good at it - and that stays with you through your whole life. That's why all of my speaking engagements through the years have been always off the cuff. I'm better off getting up there knowing what I'm going to say and doing it.

"But at the ESPYs, I really had to stick to the prompter because I only had a certain number of minutes to make it right, to get my points across. I practiced, and practiced, and practiced, and practiced to make sure I'd nail it."
