A group of my colleagues and I recently completed a 6 month training program on leadership. The 6th and final assignment was for us to do a presentation to the Board of Directors and a panel of adjudicators. No one in the group had any real experience in public speaking , nor were we very confident of our ability to do so.
I contacted Jason for help. Jason set up 2 training sessions for us to learn the "technical" aspects of public speaking and to perform the actual delivery. Of the 17 candidates , 9 attended the 1st session and 5 attended the 2nd session.
On the day, you could see a marked difference between the group who completed the 2nd session and those who only did the first session. The biggest difference of course was between those who did and those who did not partake in the training.
The Board and adjudicators were nothing short of blown away! Comments ranged from "best prepared" to "strongest group" to "never seen such a display of confidence on this program".
This was really a great note on which to complete the program.
Thanks Jason for equipping us with the skills and confidence to fly through what was the hardest part of the program.
