During a stay in America he turned down a great work opportunity out of fear of missing home too much.
After now 25 years of marriage, 2 daughters, 2 grandsons and a career he knows that mistakes are growing pains of wisdom. Listen to John and put the time into your studies, build out and invest in your friendships and seize opportunities when they come your way.Nina Morozova’s speech reflects back on 31 months of learning. It was the last speech of her Pathways Persuasive Influence. She started out in November 2018; over 50 speeches and countless projects later, this speech marked the Finale.
She taught us a lot about Pathways (Toastmasters’ Learning Programme) – in form of a Kahoot! quiz. An interactive quiz that could only be won by knowledge and fast reaction. We learned that there are 11 Pathways which each contain 5 levels and that there are over 60 projects to choose of. It is available online, tailored to the individuals’ needs, is a learning experience for today’s world and allows for frequent feedback.
In this journey, her top 3 favourite events were: Our zoom Christmas meeting, the Backwards meeting – both planned and executed by Nina – and the Leadership style project, from which she still benefits in her work.
