Share one personal skill Freemasonry helped you to improve?. . .
This question received a great response and the most prominent skill gained seems to have been within the area of public speaking, which of course boosts confidence in many aspects of life and work.
This was closely followed by memorisation, time management, patience, understanding others, and tolerance.
Research was another skill mentioned – unbiased and authentic research in Freemasonry is an underrated skill, and one which we will be covering in-depth over the next few months.
