Congratulations to Kevin Miller who achieved his Competent Communicator award at the last 2012/2013 club meeting on Thursday evening.
All members who achieve awards, especially the first award of Competent Communicator (CC), are an inspiration to other members.
They know first-hand the dedication it takes to reach that goal – going to meetings, preparing speeches, delivering the speeches and being evaluated by the other members.
Not only will attending regular meetings help members to progress but they will also inspire other members with advice on how to reach that goal, the coveted CC.
Kevin delivered his 10th speech on Thursday – Dare To Be Happy.
The objectives of the speech are to “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”
Kevin certainly achieved all the objectives, and more.
It was a heartfelt and brave speech, and it’s a testament to the club that Kevin felt he was with good friends, and comfortable enough to share his topic in public for the first time.
