Rod builds his confidence with Rostrum Public Speaking Group

Where do I go from here?

My position at work was made redundant. This was due to the down turn in the Automotive Industry. This was a role and a company that I had worked in for many years and was a huge change to my life.

I had not realised it, but my whole network of colleagues and friends revolved around my work place. I experienced a feeling of isolation and felt disconnected, my confidence and self-belief was at an all-time low.

Here I am - new to water aerobics and exercise averse.  But who would have thought that water aerobics was a gold mine of ideas for my own speaking and for fellow Rostrum members.

The instructor has to get everyone to understand what is required in the exercise.  Let's call my instructor Simon. Hi Simon.
