Wednesday morning saw an early start to attend the BJC Principles of Public Speaking breakfast with Simon Pitchers of Craddys. Simon, a former president of the BJC and Honorary Vice President provided a wealth of knowledge and advice on the principles of public speaking for our members. Simon gained his public speaking skills from the BJC public speaking group in the 1980s and has used the same in his media experience on TV shows including “Help! My House is Falling Down” with Sarah Beeney. He ran through the dos and don’ts of public speaking, be it formal presentations and PowerPoint presentations, speaking to large crowds through to Best Man speeches. All while our members enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast before heading into work. It really was a very enjoyable and informative breakfast and our thanks go to Simon for being an excellent speaker.
