London Corinthians Testimonial: Adell, Interim Manager and Strategy Consultant

April 25, 2013

Adell loves London Corinthians because of the variety of people it attracts

Q: Why did you join London Corinthians?

I joined in the summer of 2012 to improve my communication skills; in particular to improve the art of brevity for the purpose of professional discussions and presentations. I also wanted to meet new people, listen, be entertained and learn!

Q: How has it helped you as a public speaker?

Where to start… from the physical; how to stand to avoid shuffling; avoiding nervous laughter; being concise; vocal projection and plenty more!

Q: Why do you think toastmasters has been so successful in producing top public speakers?

Everyone wants you to do well. It is a positive, energetic though highly constructive methodology. The structure is quite rigid which is very helpful to get through quite a lot and the social aspects help boost the learning outcomes with tons of extra feedback.

Q: Why is LC the best TM club in London (or the more modest; why did you chose London Corinthians)?

I can honestly say Corinthians does appear to have something quite unique compared with most gatherings of people anywhere in the world! Both members and guests are from really diverse backgrounds. Young and old-ish, women, men, every nationality and profession one could think of… all equals! Artists, economists, teachers, lawyers, sales people, techie geeks and intellectuals – a melange of perfect harmony, learning and laughter! C’est la meileur de la melange qui est Londres!

Q: What final advice would you give someone wanting to improve their public speaking ability?

Join TM!!! Find a club that is convenient for you to get to and attend regularly. That’s the first step. Know what you want to get out of it. Find a mentor you can trust to give you both the good and the bad with enough detail for you to really put the advice to work! Speak! Don’t be afraid as you won’t be judged! Participate – it will give you confidence and with confidence you will learn to love it!
