The One Incident

Unlocked Stamford - The One Incident“That One Person” – this was the theme for the Unlocked Stamford event held recently.

You can read more about the group here as long as you promise to come right back when you are done.

Upon reflecting after speaking at the event, where the theme was about what one person has had a great influence on you, my thoughts went to “What One Incident” or “The One Incident”. This would be an interesting topic or theme for a group of speakers as well.

Let me back up for a moment. Our assignment was to create a twenty slide presentation deck which had to be sent over in advance by a few days – which prevented any last minute changes – these slides would automatically advance every fifteen seconds which would be the subject of your five minute talk in pictures or at least slides.

Each speaker prepared excellent talks on a person who greatly influenced them. Some were from the past and others were right now in the present.

The room held about forty people more or less. Each member of the audience seemed to enjoy their evening hearing the stories from each of the five speakers.

Do you have a “That One Person” story? Feel free to go right into the comments here on this article and share you story, we would all love to read about that one person who influenced you.

Now let’s move onto this new idea for a theme – “The One Incident”.

First allow me to invite you to go to the comments right here on this article and share your “The One Incident” story with us. We all really do want to hear this story from you.

Second is would you be interested in helping me select one of these stories. You may place your vote in the comments section of this article by naming the story line. These are the potential candidates for me for my story on “The One Incident” – a single incident which greatly impacted me. The winner will be the theme for a new article posted here at a future date.

  1. The sudden death of my younger brother at age 30 plus.
  1. The birth of our first two children, twins, and almost losing them both during pregnancy and then again right after birth.
  1. The sudden death of a friend and former shipmate in a car accident.
  1. The at sea rescue of 65 people in the South China Sea and the inspection of the boat at sea by me looking for dead bodies before cutting loose the shell of a boat the survivors were on.
  1. One of our children being struck by an SUV one night. Almost to lights out.

Select the one you feel should be my “The One Incident” by writing in the comment section the subject line from this list. Thank you in advance.
