Now it was Socrates, and not James Dyson who made that famous quote “Know Thyself”. In broad terms the message from Socrates is that one must know themselves if they are to be successful and I could not agree more with the wisely old sage.
Socrates may be a little older than James but they do have a little in common at present. You see James has won through the Toastmaster International speech contest in the speech evaluation category and travels to Sydney to earn the right to represent Australia in the USA. Why the connection? Well you see the whole purpose of speech evaluation is to give the speaker constructive and meaningful feedback on their speech. We can’t improve unless we get feedback and ‘know ourselves’ a little better.
We wish James all the best in his quest.
