What’s The Most Valuable Commodity? Stage Time!

What’s the most valuable commodity in the world?

Diamond? Gold? Palladium?

A Toastmaster might answer: None of the above.

The most valuable commodity in the world is … stage time. When you get it, you jump. Whether your presentation is quite ready or not.

At last week’s meeting, a spot opened up on the speaker’s roster and Vanessa seized it. She works in the mining industry and has an upcoming, high-stakes pitch she really needs to knock out of the park.

She used her seven minutes to practice, with her Vancore colleagues standing in for the would-be investors she’ll be encountering in New Orleans. The constructive feedback she received – what went well and what could be improved – helped her hone her presentation. Now she feels confident with her content and delivery, and answering questions from the audience.

That is what will make a difference in how you present your ideas and expertise so that your audience aligns with your position and takes inspired action.

Vancore, like all Toastmaster clubs, is a great place to give speeches you have to give for work or school a trial spin.
