We are very proud to announce that Lynne Wilkins has completed all 10 speeches in the Competent Communicator manual.
This Wednesday Lynne gave us her 10th speech entitled “Who Do You Think You Are”. Project 10 is a challenge to give a speech which inspires your audience. The manual describes it as follows:
Inspire the audience by appealing to noble motives, challenge the audience to achieve a higher level of beliefs or achievement; Appeal to the audience’s needs and emotions, using stories, anecdotes and quotes to add drama.
This Lynne did to perfection. She described to us how our life experiences mould our view of “who we are” which was very interesting and she provided us with stories of how a young child can learn to think about themselves and how we hold on to this as we grow up.
Touchingly she showed us how the “little slips” of paper which all of us use in our meetings to give feedback to every speaker also mould our impression of ourselves.
These little slips of paper mean so much to us all as they give us a glimpse into how others see us and it is usually in so much better a light than we see ourselves.
So let’s celebrate!
