    • The person who listens the most, learns the most
    • Paraphrasing is the critical skill

    • Optional Question : In what way/s do you presently give support to a charity or social cause?
    • Mandatory question : What could you do?
  • Can one person really change the world??
    • Yes.... and No.
    • Change the world all by yourself?? Not very often (although some can!!)
    • However, a small group of people sure can!
    • Everyone?? Every One !
  • You change the world. Guaranteed.
    • It is an honour (and a significant responsibility) to educate / inform / support others
    • Who have YOU influenced?
    • Who has supported YOU?
  • Her epitaph?
    • “ Everyone said I couldn’t sing.
    • But no-one can say I didn’t sing.”
