For the last speech of the Competent Communicator manual, I wanted to reflect on my time at Toastmasters of Lincoln Park. I was really surprised how quickly my time was up. I did not spend a lot of time rehearsing this speech, but I was confident in my abilities and pleased with the results. I have learned a lot about myself and being a better communicator from deliberately practicing and being inspired by the other speakers at the club. I look forward to giving more speeches from the advanced manuals. I will be working on "Interpersonal Communication" and "Interpretive Reading".
