Congratulations to all 6 of our club members who challenged each other for the best extemporaneous speaker of the day.
Table Topics is a part of the Toastmasters program that allows speakers to speak on a topic for a maximum of 2 minutes and its designed to enable you to learn and gain the self confidence that comes with acquiring this skill.
You know how it goes your in a group at work and ‘The Boss’ says.
‘What do you think?
Table topics is your reply.
There are a variety of strategies for this and you can learn and practice these at Toastmasters.
In our competition today we send our competitor’s from and bring them back one at a time asking each of them all the same question.
‘If you could change one thing in the world what is it that you would change?’
You can ponder on this question? How would you have answered it?
I could tell you what I said but as the 6th competitor it would only be one view so Ill just recommend you come along next time and hear 6 different ways.
An extra Congratulations goes to Andrew Neal the winner who will go on to represent our club at the Area Table Topics competition
