Old Speeches

As I was writing and re-writing my speech for this Saturday, I found some drafts of other speeches I’ve given.
The irony of course is that I almost never give the speech I wrote, even though I’ve liked the ones I’ve written. Why? I have no ability to memorize. None. So what I tend to do is write and re-write a speech, get the general arcs, and then make an outline of the speech I wrote and speak from it.
Here’s the one I gave at the Glitz, and the one I gave at the COS Banquet Dinner.
