Public Speaking was, and still is, one of my greatest fears. For this reason, I started attending ToastMasters in 2013 to deal with leadership and communication head on. It is still a work in progress, but I have come such a long way by forcing myself to practice what I was unfamiliar with. Since then, I have given 12 ToastMasters speeches, a best man speech in Oregon 2017 (Let me tell you about terrifying!!!), and LED Talk (Like TED Talks only brighter 🙂 ) about introversion and radical inclusion.
The good news is that by doing this I have been able to give outstanding presentations (often ending in standing ovations) that both educate and delight the audience. If you would like me to speak on any topic. please contact me via the contact page and I will respond to you in a timely manner.
In the mean time, I will be recording my speeches going forward and will post them here as a reference.
