Preparing for Interviews

We had a couple of interesting job interview sessions at recent Rostrum meetings.

Your role as a public speaker in the community

If you are in a jumping contest, you win by clearing the bar at the highest level.  You impress the crowd. You have studied technique, practised your run-up, coordinated your arms with your legs and perfected the last move to clear the bar.
