On Passion: A #TakeHome on Communication & Public Speaking
Communication & Public Speaking.
The above photo has a direct link of the slides or presentation I used recently in delivering a talk about one of my passion.
Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be a teacher. I opt to act as a teacher and gather younger kids in my place to be my students. And yes I enjoyed it. But I have this funny reason why I wanted to be a teacher… back in Elementary school I studied in a public school where in every time there is a periodical test, examiners are given a snacks. Most of the time a sandwich plus a bottle of softdrinks! Seeing it with the eyes of a kid at around 6 or 7 years old was such a treat!!! lol (Hahaha)
But this blog post is not about more revelations of me being a teacher. :)
It is about me, having that passion to impart knowledge and information. To be in front, deliver contents, share knowledge and be on stage. Whether its teaching, hosting/emceeing or a public speaking – I found myself fond of it. I have to admit though I have never been into contests such as impromptu speaking or extemporaneous speech. I on the other hand is more of the one being the master of the ceremony!
Last Friday (23.06.2017), I’ve been given the privileged to deliver a talk about Communication & Public Speaking and with all my heart, I’ve accepted this opportunity given by my former SFL Servant, Ate Amie. For 8 years in the community, it’s my first time to deliver this topic. I have attended this teaching once (as far as I remember) and yet I was not part of the workshop proper as they have exempted me for some reasons.
As a speaker, preparing the talk itself brought me joy. It is a pleasure reading, researching, checking out videos and practicing it. Creating the presentation as well is a journey that I love.
The Take Home
I would like to share own take home (lesson learned) for this talk. Aside from all the information being shared which will be self-explainatory once you check out the slide, is the fact that if you enjoy what you are doing a task or a challenge will never be difficult.
- Awareness of the given opportunity,
- Acceptance of the fact and responsibility to share knowledge/wisdom and content to fellow brothers and sisters, and
- Acting out – what is appropriate to complete and identify things to make a better way of delivering the talk.
Of course it wasn’t a perfect presentation, I’m a work in progress too!
Nevertheless, I am satisfied with its outcome, because I know God is with me. I do hope that the participants also had their sets of lesson learned in that teaching. Above all, what I really want to impart is:
When we are given the chance to do something, a service – may it be for our family, friends, community and most especially for God, make sure you get reminded with this very special verse from 1 Corinthians 16:14.
Let us put and spread love in all we do and for sure, He will lead us the way!

That verse from Corinthians is so wonderful! One of my favorites :)
