Boston Social Media speaker (617)-PATRICK, in National Speaker's Association speaking competition, speaking about social media



NSA, the National Speaker's Association, has a speaking competition every year. Out of 4,000 professional speakers that were eligible, 5 of us went to the finals at the NSA convention in Indianapolis in 2012, and I won the competition against a great field of competitors.

The video above was the first video in the competition. which was a 5 minute, prepared spech on social media.

Here was the video for the finals of the best professional speaker competition, about an ostrich jockey, which

  • was an impromptu speech
  • where they gave me the topic, "How I became the world champion ostrich jockey"
  • where I had only 10 minutes to prepare the speech.
