As far as the coaching program is concerned, the sessions will take place between October-December and it’ll consist of live sessions in via Zoom on Saturday at 7–8am (for primary and secondary school students) and 8.30–9.30am (for university students or equivalent) where I spend 40 minutes delivering slides and the remaining 20 minutes will involve individual feedback on speeches and written content delivered by the students. I’m encouraging parents to also come along.
