The joy of skiing. I grew up skiing and really the main reason I could give an impromptu speech on this topic is that I did one when I was in Toastmasters (a very short stint). I’m really not much of a speech giver, but I will say that if you are going to have to do any public speaking, join Toastmasters. It absolutely teaches you how to do it. I also, come to think of it, took a class when I worked in tech writing called High Tech Speaking, but I remember nothing about it even though I was video-taped doing it (and have the tape somewhere?). My one takeaway from that class was a pointer. I love my pointer! Actually, ouch, I lost that during my recent move. I was going to take a picture of it for you, but I can’t find it. That’s what happens when you move. But it will probably turn up. It was retractable, and you could pull it all the way out and stand in front of a screen, looking at your audience while pointing at whatever was on the screen. Very cool. (LOL!)
