When I returned to Dayton Ohio I joined toastmasters to improve my communication and leadership skills. The following is the first speach I gave back in the fall of 2009.
Update July 2012
Since giving this video I have gone on to give more then 50 additional speeches, earned Three additional Compitent Communicator, One Compitent Leader, Advanced Communicator Bronze, served as VP of public relationss and now serve as president. This speech is foundational to everything I have done in toastmasters. When this introduction was given it seamed so long, so complementary and just over done. Now it means a lot ot me. O, how I live this video and the club that welcomed me back to Dayton. How fortionate I am to have great friends. Kathy who is mentioned in the video is a close friend and I see her at TM meetings all the time.
