“The Seven Baby Steps”

This morning’s step on my path to achieving Toastmasters’ Competent Communicator status was speech number eight: Get Comfortable with Visual Aids.

For this speech, I struggled to think about what subject I could present where I could utilize visual aids in my presentation. I first thought of a similar setup I use for the Post-Processing Focus Group I lead for the Indy Meetup Photo Club. But the room where Northeast 2000 meets is too small to bring in a video projector and use the laptop. So I stole an idea from a fellow toastmaster, Bryan, and chose to go the flipchart route.

In all fairness, the material I presented in this speech was developed by Dave Ramsey in his program of the same title.
