Great keynote speakers are those who have the ability to harness their personal story and connect with their audience by showing parallels of their life to their audience. They present examples of their own achievement and sometimes failures,intertwined with the achievements of others, and by inspiring their audience to go out and take action.
Defining Your Greatness, a Toastmasters Prospective is a compilation of my first 12 Toastmasters International speeches.
As a public speaker, Book Yourself Solid Coach, Education and Training Manager and President of McGuire Achievers Toastmasters Club, this book details my journey from conception in Birmingham, England to Kingston, Jamaica where my parents returned with kids in tow to the land that they love — then to New York City where my siblings and I sought out the American dream. And currently in New Jersey as a Veteran and Reservist in the US Air Force, serving for the past 24 years.
The book details my achievements and achievements of others that rise above the fray due to hard work and commitment to realize their dreams. No matter where you are in life there is evidence that opportunities are presented on a daily basis to allow us to achieve more. We are often inspired through others to move past our own difficulties and triumph within in our own lives. I am committed to helping others cultivate their dreams and aspire to achieve goals. This book is a tool of practical and simple ways people to achieve them.
Table of Contents
The question "What am I doing with my life?" is not exclusive to one culture or nationality. This question seems to be asked by most humans at some point during life. Many of us ask ourselves this question when it seems that our lives are at a crossroad.
As the years passed, my parents longed for their childhood home. They chose as a couple to return home to the sweet, inviting shores of Jamaica. The Birmingham house was sold, family belongings packed, and in October 1974, my mother, older sister, brother and I set sail on a Venezuelan ship named Begonia.

I have developed a presentation to deliver as a speech at club meetings.
Second major organization is Women Veterans Rock Advisory Council (https://www.womenvetsrock.org/about/partnership/), a National Affiliate Network which includes partnership with Zeta Phi Beta (http://zphib1920.org/).
