Do you get sweaty palms when you have to give a presentation or speech? Joining Toastmasters will give you comfortable space to practice your speaking skills. You will get positive feedback and constructive advice with each speech you give from fellow Toastmasters and experienced speech givers, called Evaluators.
Do you stutter or say “uh” or “ya know” a lot? Joining Toastmasters will help you eliminate bad speaking behaviors and start good speaking habits. The “Ah Counter” will give you auditory indications to help you identify when you use filler words.
Do you have a hard time speaking on the spur of the moment? Joining Toastmasters will help you to learn how to speak extemporaneously during Table Topics. Each week a new topic is brought up for discussing by the Table Topics Master. A different question is asked of each member and you will have 45 seconds to respond. This is a great exercise to learn to “think on your feet!”
Do you have a hard time limiting how much you speak or have a hard time filling speaking time? Joining Toastmasters will help you learn to fill time with relevant content with each speech you present. The Timer will visually let you know when you have reached your minimum, median, and maximum speaking time.
Do you have difficulty coming up with the right words to get your point across? Joining Toastmasters will give you an opportunity to learn from Evaluators who will give you recommendations on how to change up what you say and how you say it.
Do you want to expand your vocabulary? Each week the Grammarian presents a word to the club. The goal is to use it correctly during the meeting to get comfortable using it in daily life.
We will see YOU at the next Real Orators Toastmasters meeting on Friday morning!
