So after much thought over the last week I decided the following:
From July 1, 2012 to June 31, 2013, I will perform 30 Toastmasters speeches
My intent in this is that I want to force myself through my Advanced Communicator Bronze, Silver and Gold designations in one pass. I've already completed a number of components of these designations so I don't really need a full 30 speeches but regardless I think it an ambitious goal.
To put that into perspective, on more than half of the meetings in a year, I need to be presenting a formal speech.
This will effectively lead me to the coveted Toastmasters "Triple Crown" - a triad of designations within a single Toastmasters year.
I am hoping to blog most of these experiences as the year progresses both to keep myself motivated and to keep myself accountable.
