I am a retired Sports Coach and have been a member of Toastmasters International for over four years. I won their area Humorous Speech Competition in 2017 and came second in 2018. Since my retirement I have spent many hours fund raising for various charities. I started Public Speaking about six years ago and have spoken to many groups over these years.
I hate wasting time and am usually very busy. I organise two monthly walks for the U3A and also walk with friends. I play the ukulele and piano – not very well but enjoy practicing from time to time. I am an avid reader mainly of thrillers. I paint stones and hide them to raise awareness of D.I.P.G. As age took its toll and I could no longer play Netball I started playing darts and play for a local team. I also run a darts group for the U3A. My son has a rare illness and I run the North East Support Group for Vasculitis. I enjoy gardening and growing my own flowers and vegetables. When I give my talks I always ask for feedback and can supply copies to anyone who is interested.
About my talk...
My first talk “Andrew’s Journey,” is approximately 45 minutes in length including the power point display. It contains humour as well as serious content. I have spoken at Lion’s and Rotary Clubs. Probus, Church Groups, WI’s and U3A’s. It is a standalone talk and I will bring my own computer however, I will need a screen.
I can give my talks as virtual presentations (zoom).
