Next meeting, Wednesday 28 September at 7:30pm

How quickly a fortnight comes around! Yes, it’s toasties time tonight. As normal we will be toastmasters-quote
commencing at 7:30pm but you are welcome to join us earlier for a bite to eat or a relaxing  glass of vino.

Myths about Toastmasters:
Here are a few myths about Toastmasters taken from the toastmasters website. If you are considering joining…. here is some extra motivation:

Myth 1I don’t need Toastmasters because I don’t give speeches.

Reality: What about when your boss asks for a status report on your
project? What about when you present an idea at a staff meeting? The
more you consider your business and personal conversations as
“presentations”, the more care you will give those conversations and
the more professional they will be. Toastmasters will help you develop

that professional edge.

Myth 2I’m not smart enough. I’ll be embarrassed. I can’t think of anything to talk about.

Reality: Everyone is smart enough. Everyone has things that
interest them—things they can share. You won’t be any more
embarrassed than when you are talking with friends. Have you got a
hobby? What is your job like? Do you have kids, a spouse, other

family? Where did you go on your last vacation? You have a lot to say!

Myth 3The other members are already good speakers. I’d be nervous.

Reality: While the club does have good speakers, everyone starts at
the same place. Many of the senior members continue to attend and
give presentations because even though they have improved their

speaking skills, there is always something new to learn from each other.
