As Toastmasters, we’re constantly striving to learn and master the key tenets and elements of public speaking. These tenets, however, can sometimes hold us back – especially when they become conventions. From time to time, it pays to expand beyond what’s expected and break a rule (or two) in order to deliver a speech that’s different, memorable, and unconventional… an “Un-Speech”!!
Join us for our Liberty Village Toastmasters meeting this Wed. March 23 at the Harbourfront Community Centre, Assembly Room C. Our Toastmaster, John, will present the theme for the evening: the “Un-Meeting”. Each of our prepared speakers – Lily, Francisco, and Julian – will be challenged to break at least one Toastmasters convention during each of their speeches. The audience will then vote on the best “Un-Speech” – and the winning speaker will receive a special “Un-Prize” (worth $30)…
In addition, we have a special “Un-Workshop” on Procrastination, facilitated by one of our long-standing Advanced Speakers, Ian. We’ll be taken through the current thinking on the causes of procrastination, as well as some recommended ways to overcome it.
Don’t procrastinate – make sure you drop by our meeting this Wednesday!
