Club Member Spotlight: Bill Hicks
Bill joined Toastmasters in April 2016 and is a newly minted Competent Communicator, having given his 10th speech in December. He is also currently acting as Contest Chair for Career Communicator’s spring contest, set for February 7, 2017. Taking on the role as Contest Chair is one step closer to achieving the Competent Leader education award that Bill is pursuing with gusto.
According to Bill the best rule of three quote that he has read about public speaking is:
“Be sincere. Be brief. Be Seated”
~Franklin D. Roosevelt
To quote Bill from his own recent “Yes, And” speech:
“Over this last year I’ve learned that…
life is an improvisation.
Say yes and to every situation
that comes your way.
At least that’s my recommendation.”
Personally, I love the Seussian rhyme that Bill has going here.
Bill has also spearheaded the club’s effort to start a Facebook page. He welcomes your participation at https://www.facebook.com/careercommunicators!
