In the speech “Jack-of-all-trades, Master of One”, Latrece Hawkins—taking her personal and professional experience—presented a radiography of “jacks”, and she told us how this trait or circumstance can be a positive one. Not knowing initially how to cope with this attribute, she had to learn to love herself to accept it.
Steve Weltman evaluated Latrece’s speech. Steve highlighted the fluency, clarity, and humor of the speaker’s delivery accompanied by an excellent eye contact and use of notes. The evaluator also pointed out the good use of vocal variety, voice projection and pitch—adding intensity to the discourse. Steve suggested starting the story at an earlier point in time—in order to know the speaker’s perspective. The impressive quality of Steve’s evaluation made him win the Best Evaluator ribbon.
