Verbal tics which risk diluting your impact...

"Try to..."

"I would say..."

"Uhm..."

"That's about it."

"This may be a rubbish/bad idea but..."

"Kind of like..."

"I'm probably wrong but..."


Are there exceptions? Of course.

These are not hard and fast rules.

Context is all.

But even a moderate tightening and sharpening of language can unlock significantly greater impact.

The school is at the start of an ambitious and exciting journey. You have helped us set the standard for the remainder of the year and further ahead. I hope you will return to the school in the future and inspire subsequent cohorts of MPP students.
