Regardless of career, effective speaking skills are often considered essential to success. Whether speaking formally during a presentation or informally to followers and team members, confident effective speaking is a valuable life skill to master.
The Air Cadet League of Canada supports a national effective speaking program, consisting of competitions that range from local, to provincial, to national. Cadets interested in improving their speaking ability and confidence practice regularly with the effective speaking team, culminating in a Squadron-level effective speaking competition. The top two cadets from this competition move on to compete at a Wing-level, and can eventually compete at provincial and national competitions.
