Did you have a great summer? I hope you enjoyed my recent articles on kayaking.I am really enjoying it myself. I took my test for VHF marine with the local Power and Sail Squadron, who administer such tests in Canada. I am hoping to get a waterproof VHF handheld sometime in the future, for when I am out kayaking off the coast. One thing that I find amazing, by the way, is if you go to google, and search for "Duncan in Kayak" and you can find photos of me.
I have also joined a local canoe and kayak club, and this weekend we have a paddle at a local lake. It promises to be lots of fun.
The most popular articles I have written have all been about appreciation. If you go to google, and search for "Appreciation Speech", I am currently in 4th place. It was purely by accident that I stumbled upon it. I had done a speech on appreciation at my local Toastmasters club, and I posted my speech notes. Since then, I have the following articles:
Appreciation Speech - my original speech notes
More on Appreciation Speech - focus on all the things to appreciate
How To Write An Appreciation Speech - specific how-to information
Customer Appreciation - applying appreciation for customer retention
How To Get Appreciation - really you should not be dependant on it
Anyways, I have a lot on the topic. If you think there is an aspect I have missed out, please let me know, and I can explore it here.
Next week I have to be ready to compete in a humorous speech contest, so I will be working on my speech this week. Wish me luck!
