As a Toastmaster and of course, as public speaker, one would always would like to meet the World Champions or the cream of the crops.
I had the chance recently to meet Dana Lamon (1992 World Champion). He was born with partial impaired and, his unfortunate became blind at age of 24.
But he did not give up in his life and became Judge, father of 4 and of course international speaker.
It was great meeting him and having chat with him over a dinner. He has sharp listening and sensing skills.
Glad to share experience on public speaking and journey to move forward in life.
