Public Speaking Tip/s:
1) "One thing you always have to remember is that there's nobody sitting listening to you who would be any less anxious or nervous or than you are speaking"...
2) "Just try to be conversational, as if you are talking to one hundered (100) as if you are talking to one (1) person - try not to get caught up in the fact that there are multiple people in the room - you are talking to one person, that person in the far back in the last row.. You're talking to them in the back of the room and trying to help them understand what your point is"....
3) "If YOU'RE the one doing the speaking -- you're going to know more about that topic than 90% of people in the room"...
3) "Just get yourself in the mind set that I have a story to share and I want to share it with you".
1) "Leadership qualities or leadership skills can be traced those back potentially to time my time in the Military".
Times in Port -- stand watch oversee things, times served watch engineering office of the watch 23-24 years old -- big chair, monitor the entire ship - huge responsibility - magnitude of what we had to over see
General Quarters -- central control - relaying information - hit ---
2) "One thing that has helped me a lot is I have faith in people...you have to trust, if you put good people in positions, that you feel comfortable that they're going to do well....then you need to let them do their job..."
3) "If you have to conversations down the road if things don't go the way you think they should be going -- then have conversations done the road for improvement".
4) "Give people some rope --- Can't be over shoulder, emails, following them around" I am more of a person who judges a job by the results -- if I want this job done and this is what I want accomplished today - if you get it done in six (6) hours instead of eight (8) and last couple of hours doing what ever it is that you are doing -- I am not necessarily interested in that. I am more interested in that fact that you got the job done that I wanted to see happen ".

Stuttering (//) or stammering (//) (more generally the first in US and the second in British usage) (alalia syllabaris, alalia literalis or anarthria literalis) is a speech disorder in which the flow of speech is disrupted by involuntary repetitions and prolongations of sounds, syllables, words or phrases as well as involuntary silent pauses or blocks in which the person who stutters is unable to produce sounds. The term stuttering is most commonly associated with involuntary sound repetition, but it also encompasses the abnormal hesitation or pausing before speech, referred to by people who stutter as blocks, and the prolongation of certain sounds, usually vowels or semivowels. According to Watkins et al. stuttering is a disorder of "selection, initiation, and execution of motor sequences necessary for fluent speech production." For many people who stutter, repetition is the primary problem. The term "stuttering" covers a wide range of severity, encompassing barely perceptible impediments that are largely cosmetic to severe symptoms that effectively prevent oral communication. In the world, approximately four times as many men as women stutter, encompassing 70 million people worldwide, or about 1% of the world's population. The impact of stuttering on a person's functioning and emotional state can be severe. This may include fears of having to enunciate specific vowels or consonants, fears of being caught stuttering in social situations, self-imposed isolation, anxiety, stress, shame, being a possible target of bullying (especially in children), having to use word substitution and rearrange words in a sentence to hide stuttering, or a feeling of "loss of control" during speech. Stuttering is sometimes popularly seen as a symptom of anxiety, but there is actually no direct correlation in that direction (though as mentioned the inverse can be true, as social anxiety may actually develop in individuals as a result of their stuttering).
