Speech: Dancing Your Way to Success
I’ve spent a couple weeks doing the Toastmasters Humorous Speech Contest circuit. First the club level, then the area level and finally the division level, where I placed third with this speech. Admittedly, that’s not much of a circuit, especially when you consider there is only one higher level anyway.
The purpose of speech was not to win a contest, although it did win at the club level. It was second at the area level, but the 1st place winner was unable to compete at the division. No, the real purpose of the speech was to break through my personal boundaries and be more expressive and less introverted. I think I accomplished that goal. I still need to practice my speech technique though.
