As promised, I wanted to let you know how my speech went last night.
It was a success and I was very happy with how it went. My voice wasn’t too bad although still higher in pitch than we would like, but the audience wouldn’t have picked up on that. My breathing wasn’t perfect but I got by.
Feedback included, ironically, that my vocal variety was good (although you and I know it could be better 😁). I also came across with emotion and animation and the close had impact (thanks to you!). The audience loved the content. It created inspiration and brought out some Marie Kondo fans, and as a result created great discussion.
Some constructive feedback included, too many sentences starting with ‘and’. Also, somebody suggested that I could perhaps start the speech with the story because I became more alive and it was thought this might have a bigger impact.
There were 3 speakers and there is always a vote for the best. I’m happy to say that I won 😊
Thank you for your help Priscilla, you are so inspiring and motivating and I feel like I’m getting there slowly.
See you on our next session.
