He shared his experience of using these to spell out his name in client calls and how will it help us.
We did a outdoor activity and called out our names from 100 ft afar. We were split into groups of 2 people each.
We screamed our names to our counterpart amidst general population in cubbon park – talk about gettting conscious!!!! haha
After the initial discomfort we totally enjoyed the experience and shared it.

Stammering is a blocker for career path – Discussion
Keshav brought a nice topic for discussion , does stammering hamper career growth? we discussed over the topic and general opinion was that
there is no substitute to skill and hard work. But proper communication does play a role in higher positions for which we need to improve our communication and overcome(manage) our stammering. We need to make use of the available opportunities and grow.
We had audio recorded and shared with each individual for “Incident Sharing/Prepared Speech” – Analyzing this would bring us closer
to the voice we portray to the rest of the world. Audio feedback provides an excellent way to know our strengths and weakness.
It was already 12.50 and we greeted each other once more before parting ways
