I love to be a guest speaker at other Toastmasters clubs

I love to be a guest speaker at other Toastmasters clubs.

I love to visit other Toastmasters clubs. I love it even more when I have the opportunity to speak at other clubs because I get a new audience. An audience that is unaware of how I speak and does not have preconceived notions of how I speak.

I enjoy seeing a new group of faces in the audience and seeing their reactions when I speak. One of the most valuable parts is the feedback as well.

I look forward to the formal evaluations and informal feedback, too.

I love to be the Table Topics Master at my Toastmasters meeting

I love to be the Table Topics Master at my Toastmasters meeting.

For those unfamiliar with the table topics segment of Toastmasters, here is a short explanation: The table topics Master creates a series of questions that are presented to the audience at the appropriate time. Only the topic master has prior knowledge of the questions. She or he call and member of the audience that does not have a speaking role and the person answers the question. It’s meant to be spontaneous so that one can practice thinking on one’s feet.

I love being the topics master because I get to ask questions of others. I try to make them think. I enjoy listening to their answers which gives me a little insight into how the person is and their thought processes.

I love to visit other Toastmasters clubs.

I love Toastmasters, in general. It’s only natural to enjoy other club’s meetings.

I know how my club works. It is interesting to see how other clubs work. While there are general rules for how meetings are run, each club has their own nuances. Some of the more significant differences are the location, date and time. There are also some subtle differences, for example, if a bell is rung when a speaker says “ah” or “um” as a verbal clutch.

It’s also interesting to meet new people that share a common interest in speaking and to learn about their backgrounds and other interests.

As long as I am a member of Toastmasters, I will continue to visit other clubs.

I love Toastmasters.

I aspire to be a great public speaker in the near future and one of the best ways to do so is by joining Toastmasters.

For those unfamiliar to the organization, Toastmasters has self organized groups all over the world where one can learn and practice public speaking in a safe environment. One is positively encouraged and given constructive feedback by peers.

There are Toastmasters organizations all over the world where one can visit at no cost to learn more about how the meetings and organization function.

I love going to Toastmasters meetings, practicing speaking, encouraging others and spending time with positive people.

I love Toastmasters!

I love to meet people that inspire others

I love to meet people that inspire others.

I went to a Toastmasters meeting today and had the pleasure of helping with a contest. There are normally two parts in the contest, the speech contest and the evaluator contest.

A test speaker is used for the evaluator contest (which is a competition to see who can give the best evaluation of the speaker). On this day, the guest speaker providing the test speech was inspiring.

He was a professional speaker and it showed. He shared a question that he is often asked: Why is he still a member of Toastmasters if he knows how to speak in public?

He replied that he continues to participate because he really wants to help others improve themselves.

I loved that. I could relate to it. And I was inspired by his words!
