Roseville Toasters help make public speaking fun
Learn public speaking tricks for fun and personal growth
ROSEVILLE, CA – Most people dread speaking in front of a group. Meanwhile, some 15,000 Toastmasters Clubs meet weekly around the world, learning public speaking tricks for fun and personal growth. Attendance has clearly suffered during the pandemic, and many clubs have moved to Zoom. Now, most of the clubs are back to meeting in person.
What does a Toastmasters meeting look like? Each club is a little different, but they all have 3 things in common: Perhaps the most fun is Talking Earlier with TableTopics: People get to experience thinking on their feet, talking for a minute or two, after being given a surprise topic. About 3 prepared speeches are also presented, and speakers can choose the topic. Each prepared speech is assigned a rater, so that the speaker can learn the things they do best, that others can learn from by example, and get ideas for making their next speech even better.
Rotation jobs every meeting. You might be the Toastmaster running the entire show today. or TableTopics presenter. or assessor. Or one of the other tasks that help people feel comfortable in front of others, or make a great meeting. Officers are also elected annually, so members can develop leadership skills…a solid addition to any resume. It is common for people who are personally self-conscious to grow and develop greater self-confidence.
After the pandemic, you may feel the need to expand your friend and partner base again. Perhaps you are interested in involving yourself in something designed for personal growth; Or share some of your deeply held beliefs. You will learn how to use visuals/audios for any presentations in your job. Mentors are available if you want to rocket growth. And this is one of those clubs that you will likely return to in the future as a family or as an alumnus.
Over the next month, Roseville Toasters Club will focus on new membership post-pandemic. They meet every Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm, at Raleigh Community Room, in 1915 Douglas in Roseville. All guests are welcome. And if you’re late, you can slip through the back door. Participation in the speech is voluntary but we encourage you to jump in if you are comfortable. Please join us! We’ll help you choose the local Toastmasters International club that best suits your needs. (Dates: 12/6, 12/13, 1/3, 1/10).
