Invigorating Winter Nights

ID-100153371With winter approaching fast, the nights are much longer and allow more time to tackle interesting activities. If you are looking for something inspirational and invigorating to do, join us at South Coast Speakers Toastmasters in San Remo. We are a team of interested individuals in both communication and leadership skills. We get together every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month to work on our public speaking abilities. It doesn’t matter if you are a local business owner wanting to improve your communication skills or if you are an individual looking for something exciting to do! As a business owner you will gain a lot of knowledge and practice from our program. We work our way through speech projects with various orientations and topics. At the same time, we take on various roles at the fortnightly meetings and enhance our leadership expertise. Each meeting consists of a table topic activity to encourage impromptu speaking and a rolling story to tap into our creativity and storytelling. We could not think of anything better to do to make those long winter nights pass quickly!

If you would like to come along as a guest to one of our meetings to see it all in action, come to the San Remo Hotel, San Remo on Wednesday 8th May 2013. If you would like us to know that you are coming, please ring Carol Cain (5952 5875) or Chrissy Legg (0435 261 281). See you there!

‘Being with friends isn’t the the greatest feeling. The greatest feeling is being with who make you feel like you are with friends.’ (Daniel Marshall, VPE South Coast Speakers)

We do have a fabulous agenda for our next meeting this week. Three prepared speeches that are individuality evaluated, Table topics to familiarise yourself with talking on your feet – impromptu. Table topics are also evaluated to give you feedback on how you structured your ‘spontaneous’ speech on a (table) topic! It also allows an evaluator to extend his/her skills on evaluation.

Of course, we will have a round robin introductions and a rolling story. A great way to tap into your creative speaking skills and humor. Our mini-speeches called Mini Sagas have been very popular with our members coming up with a speech of 50 words!

So, if you are not doing anything very interesting tomorrow night, please come along to our Toastmaster meeting and meet some friends! Surely, you will be entertained and challenged at the same time.
