Annette Lavigne is my friend and recent public speaking champion at the District Level of Toastmasters. I am in deep admiration of her speaking style which has blossomed in my time of knowing her first as a Toastmaster and then as a friend who has encouraged her along her competitive public speaking journey. Having the courage to speak about herself candidly with a grace and honour I hope to bring through in my own speaking, makes her a mentor I will always treasure. Her business ShyBusters is a place where the "publicly petrified" can go for one on one or group coaching to minimize their anxiety.
I hope to see more people like Annette make their message bigger by speaking to larger target audiences who need to hear a message from the heart with a dash of truth.
Affirmation: Always aim higher.
