Are You Afraid To Give A Speech? We’ll Help You Overcome The Fear!
Simply focus on what you’ve written your speech about and visualize success.
Believe you will deliver the best speech and the applause that will come once you finish.
What’s the worst thing that could happen? You’re not going to die, you’ll be fine and a better person once you finish.
Another tip, if you are scared: GO FIRST! Get it out of the way so you don’t sit there agonizing over it.
Feel ready to get in front of people and talk? Come to our next Toastmaster’s meeting! Tuesday @ 6:30PM at the La Jolla YMCA Firehouse. Always free for guests and we won’t push you to try to join if you don’t want to.
As you are all aware, we are having our meeting at La Jolla Shores next week. Bring your beach chairs. We will meet on the grass at first and set up around a bonfire. The meeting starts promptly at 6:30 p.m.
I have received two volunteers (Jess and Jay) who will bring fire wood and fire starters. I have also received two volunteers to bring refreshments (Kevin and Diana).
I am looking for a volunteer to be at the beach early and grab an open bonfire pit for us. Please e-mail me at evc [at] bsllp . com if you are willing to do this.
Thank you! It’s going to be a fun meeting!

Everyone experiences moments of impromptu speaking in their daily lives…
Have you ever been asked to give a quick recap of a meeting, prepare a 5 minute presentation in front of a group of guests, or just had to come up with a response on the spot? These are not every day skills that everyone excels at. These are skills that need practice and there is no better place to practice these skills than at a Toastmasters meeting.
Lets run through a typical Table Topics session:
The Table Topics master states that Table Topics Word of the Day, which needs to be incorporated into the speech.
The Table Topics master calls up a person to participate.
The Table Topics master gives the participant either a question or a statement which they are to then give a 45sec to 1min 30sec impromptu speech.
Now that you understand a little bit about Table Topics. Which person would you vote for the best Table Topics speech in the video above? Put you answer in the comments below!
