During a Toastmasters Meeting

  • Giving impromptu speeches
    • Members get to learn to think on their feet by delivering impromptu speeches on assigned topics.
  • Presenting prepared speeches
    • Members will present speeches based on the topics given. A variety of assigned speeches help the participant to develop competency in areas such as thought processing, voice intonation, body language, gestures and persuasion.
  • Constructive speech evaluation
    • After giving the speeches, an evaluator will point out the strengths and provides valuable insights into the problem areas to all the speakers. In this way, speakers will gain encouragement and confidence.
