"Accept both compliments and criticism. It takes both sun and rain for a flower to grow."

February 25, 2018

Good afternoon 1st Londoners. This is a quote I saw the other day and thought how relevant it was to public speaking.

It's lovely to get the compliments and we bask in it but the criticism is a little harder to take.....but essential to your growth as a speaker. And this is why it's important to always provide both commendations AND a recommendation when giving an evaluation.


Speech and Evaluation Contest - Monday 12th March


And talking of evaluations - we still need contestants for our Speech and Evaluation Contest on Monday 12th March. We also need people to help facilitate the evening - timekeepers, ballot counters and judges. Log in to Easyspeak to take on some of the roles or if you'd like to challenge yourself and enter the contest, please reply to this email and we will put your name down.
