This morning, I gave the final speech in the Toastmasters “Develop Your Vision” project; I talked about my plan for the Shir Hadash Ritual Committee in the upcoming year as our new Senior Rabbi begins his tenure with us. It wasn’t the best speech I’ve given; it wasn’t the worst, either, but it was probably the one which would have benefited most from handing out a glossary in advance!
I have one more speech left to complete the “Visionary Communications” path. The last speech in each of the Toastmasters paths asks you to “Reflect on Your Path” and talk about what you’ve gained from the experience. When I completed “Engaging Humor”, I tried to make that speech funny; I’m not sure how I’m going to work visions into the speech this time, but I’ll try.
