How does Toastmasters work?
New members receive a manual whic contains guidelines
for the ten required speeches.
Each speech has a goal.
For example, the first speech is "The Icebreaker",
an introduction about yourself.
With the completion of the ten speeches,
the member earns a CC(Competent Communicator) certificate.
Advanced programs in communication and leadership are also available.
When do I have to give my speeches?
You give the speeches at your own pace.
You should feel comfortable preparing and practicing your speech.
Schedule your speeches to meet your own goals.
How do I know how well I am doing?
You are assigned an evaluator for each speech you give.
The evaluator provides positive feedback and constructive criticism.
How can I practice before giving my speech?
During regular meetings there are many opportunities to get up in front of the group to speak.
You may volunteer for the Word of the Day, the Joke of the Day or Table Topics, a question and
answer session which allows volunteers to speak extemporaneously for one to two minutes.
