On the 7th of November 2017, Kingi took us to a journey in ourselves and reminded us that we were all unique in delivering our messages.
He was comfortable during his entire speech. He knew how to connect with each one of us in his own way. We could not feel anything glossy or pre-packaged about him. He spoke right from his heart, reaching to ours with ease. Kingi told us that he had brought some ideas for the night so that we could pick the ones we liked, just like the birds would pick their favourite seeds from a pack.
Thank you Kingi. We now appreciate more than ever, that the message we deliver has the greatest importance in our speeches and must be done in our own way.
If we were to write on the wall to remind us for future speeches, it would be:
Start with the message that you want to deliver… and ask yourself “who cares” and “so what’s the point”? When you know what you want to say, then it’s easy to know how to say it and quickly get to the point. And when you allow your message to be a part of you, and deliver it as yourself, then others will follow along your journey and engage with your message.
