Taking on this role improves critical thinking, confidence and public speaking skills.
Every speaker is a role model, and club members learn from one another’s speeches. As a meeting speaker, you:
- Schedule a speech
- Prepare, rehearse and present a speech during the club meeting.
- On easy-speak add your speech title and introduction for the Toastemaster to read as your introduction into the meeting.
- Arrive early to make sure the microphone, lectern and lighting are working and in place.
- Discuss your goals, strengths and weaknesses with your evaluator prior to giving your speech.
