On Friday August 14th, as part of a project for our Toastmasters track, my good friend Leon Bullard, interviewed me on his show “To Your Health” during our club meeting. The show will be recorded and saved here if you wish to listen. Leon embodies good health and wellness. He is a track runner, as well being a great father of 3 children, an accomplished public speaker and an entrepreneur with his budding health business. I am happy to know him. We agreed that we would do this interview in advance and I knew the topic would be my passion for yoga. Beyond that, we did not rehearse once, and I had no idea what questions he was going to ask me! The entire interview was improvised and spontaneous.
As you can see, Leon is supremely poised and comfortable, as though he is recording some 30th edition of his show! I am the honored guest that has the pleasure of being interviewed, while also trying to contain my excitement, rather unsuccessfully. In the background, the banner of Speech Acrobats hangs proudly in bold yellow.
3 Things to Add to the Video Interview:
- First, I had to edit the original interview down to under 10 minutes to meet YouTube standards. The gratitude on assistance here goes to my tremendously patient husband who edited this for me on his fancy Mac Mini!
- Second, I should like to note that while we enjoyed the interview tremendously, our evaluators and videographer pointed out areas that we could polish and improve, so it is entirely possible that we shall have more interviews lined up. For starters, Leon is interviewing me on the subject of overall health on his BlogTalkRadio on August 23rd, Sunday at 4pm EST.
- love to hear what you think of the video, and what I could do more effectively next time to appeal better to my audience through my passion for the topic.
