I’ve been a member of JCI for a whole two weeks now and I’ve just attended my very first national event. It was a busy weekend in Reading. Inspiration Day was on Saturday and I participated in the JCI presenter course the following day.
Or perhaps I should say ‘was subjected to’ the Presenter course, a lesson in stepping out of your comfort zone. Joking aside it was a fun event (albeit a little scary) and I learnt a lot!.
Under the care of our trainers Adam, Simon and Solveig, we studied the types of presentation that we may encounter and we learnt to understand audiences and their needs. We also examined presentation content and effective delivery of the final message.
By the end of the day our group of 20 JCI students prepared and delivered individual presentations with considerable style, confidence and quality.
On a personal note, it was amazing to see everyone develop throughout the day and to complete the course having gained valuable skills and confidence by taking part and doing something new. A brilliant way to learn, build confidence and get to know a few more JCI people. Well done everyone!
