Last Tuesday I competed in the the Corporate Speaking Challenge 2017 finals.
Can you believe it, I won!
In my speech I tell the story of when I was young and I would play tennis up against a brick wall. Not just any brick wall, the one outside Campden Hill Lawn Tennis Club. I couldn’t afford to join the club but it didn’t stop me from hitting balls up against the wall. Determined to improve my skills.
This wall educated me.
Not only on how to play better tennis but it also taught me how to practice and that’s a lesson that I’ve applied to all areas of my life.
