At the risk of losing folks because of two thoughtf-illed posts in a row (lol)….I wanted to share my Toastmasters Speech 10 – the final in the Competent Communicators Manual! I’ve been working through this for over a year, and I finally did complete it…whew!

Toastmasters Speech 10: Inspire

The objectives for this final speech in this series, Inspire Your Audience (8 – 10 Minutes):

• To inspire the audience by appealing to noble motives and challenging 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
• Avoid using notes

I’d been stewing on Toastmasters Speech 10 for a long, long time…the topic changed repeatedly for months! I’m pretty happy with how this one came out, even though I had some hiccups I wish I could take back. You can watch the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Things of note:

Class spots still open – I heard from Impress in Tukwila WA that there are still just a couple open seats left in my class tonight and I’d love it if you can make it! It’s “Jars of Cuteness” with Lawn Fawn stamps….sneak peek below. Class is at 6:30, and you can call the store to sign up – 206-901-9101! Call quick before they’re filled up! My next class isn’t til later in March, and I’m going to start planning my upcoming teaching tours soon too, so stay tuned for more info. West coast is next, so if you have an LSS out here that I should visit, introduce me!

One last thing – My friend Laura and her kiddos Charlie and Emma made the cutest cardmaking video with the Tiny Heroes set. I finally got a chance to watch it and oh my gosh it is too adorable. Check it out!
