For many people, the words “Effective speaking” have a distinct effect. It is not uncommon to be uncomfortable with delivering prepared or impromptu speeches in front of large groups, but in our increasingly competitive world, it is a valuable skill to learn young. That is precisely what a small group of cadets at 111 had the experience to do, at our squadron’s Effective Speaking Competition. After completing an effective speaking instructional program, these cadets had the opportunity to display their skills, delivering one prepared and one impromptu speech in front of a panel of three judges, as well as their family and peers.
