Toastmasters speech 2: Fifteen Minutes

Fifteen Minutes was my second speech at the Phoenix Speakers Toastmasters club in London, made on the 8 March 2017.

It interweaves the idea of 15 minutes of fame with the story of my own moment in the limelight 10 years ago, when the story of my gene therapy operation was reported on around the world.

Unfortunately I was distracted a couple of times during the speech, once by my own side comment and once by noting the time lights changing but not knowing what colour they were on. I also trimmed the ending a little as I thought I had less time left than I did. Nevertheless the feedback was positive about the structure and content, even if it could have been a little slower and perhaps I could have worked on my stage presence a little.
