Saturday Circle of Gold session started on 10 Feb, 2018 with discussions on how to memorize a speech. Chris reminded us of the age-old trick of selecting items in a room and associating or interacting with this item with parts of your speech. Tip and techniques will be discussed at the next session. Two of our contestants were ready with the first draft of their speech which they read out for feedback on content.
Val Erickson and Geetha N presented a COG session at the Mega TLI held at Evergreen Community Spaces on Feb 3, 2018. It was a show-and-tell session where Christal Reed delivered a speech, got feedback from an evaluation team (Cheryl Dust, Nandini Venkatesan, Catherine Secundiak), worked on her feedback and delivered it again after 12 minutes! And what a show that was!
