The agenda has been finalised for the upcoming Open House “Taster” meeting next Wednesday 23rd January 2019. Everyone is welcome and we’ve rejigged the program to include some special roles to help newcomers get an idea of how Toastmasters works.
The evening will include the following.
The usual warm up where everyone is invited to speak for 15 seconds, usually answering a simple question such as “What was your favourite holiday”. This serves to get us all in the mood but everyone is free to pass if they’re not in the mood.
Two “Member Spotlights” where current members share their experiences of how they came to Toastmasters and how it has helped them.
An “Ice Breaker” Speech from a new member giving their first speech prepared speech to the club.
A speech from an experienced speaker from a London club.
Two evaluations of the prepared speeches.
A segment for impromptu speaking which we call “Table Topics”. This is a fun part of the meeting and a chance for anyone to step up and give a short speech of up to 2 and a half minute on a subject handed to them just before the speech.
A Grammarian’s report who will give his impression on the language used throughout the meeting.
Of there will also be the usual technical roles such as Sergeant at Arms and Time Keeper.
It’s going to be a splendid evening and if you’re interested in the club but not quite sure if it’s for you then next Wednesday is a chance to come and check us out.
