  • Hello! I'm Raphaela.

  • Thanks for visiting Toastmasters International,

  • where more than 4 million people have gained the confidence to communicate

  • and lead in any circumstance.

  • They've done this by becoming a member of a Toastmasters club.

  • Toastmasters has a network of more than thirteen thousand clubs around the

  • world to choose from,

  • and although the format is not exactly the same in all of these clubs,

  • one thing is consistent:

  • members give speeches,

  • they take on meeting roles,

  • and they have a great time learning.

  • If you're interested in seeing what a typical club meeting is like,

  • please join me at my club;

  • the "Bright and Early Toastmasters."

  • Your timing is perfect. The meeting is just about to begin.

  • During a club meeting a few members volunteer to take on meeting roles

  • such as Toastmaster of the day,

  • Timer,

  • Grammarian or Evaluator.

  • Some members give speeches.

  • Club meetings are free to visit and when you do, you have a chance to find out

  • about the communication and leadership skills

  • members developed every time they participate. Alright, welcome everyone.

  • Welcome to the "Bright and Early" Toastmasters club.

  • I call this meeting to order.

  • Nicolas is our club president.

  • He starts every meeting by welcoming us and introducing the Toastmaster of the day.

  • I’d like to introduce Jay, our Toastmaster.

  • The Toastmaster of the day is the chair of the meeting.

  • Jay’s job as today’s Toastmaster is to introduced speakers and keep the meeting

  • rolling along.

  • It's great practice for leading meetings.

  • Jay starts the meeting by introducing the people who will fill the meeting roles.

  • The purpose of the meeting roles is to help members improve their skills

  • in both communication and leadership

  • by providing feedback and evaluation.

  • And now I’d like to introduce our Ah-Counter: Deborah.

  • Many clubs use an Ah-Counter at meetings.

  • This person helps Toastmasters keep track of filler words they use while speaking.

  • At the end of each meeting the Ah-Counter reports how many Ah’s, Um’s and other

  • filler words each speaker used.

  • This helps members become more aware of unintended words or sounds they make

  • when they speak.

  • And now I'd like to introduce our Grammarian: Danielle.

  • Hi, everybody! The Grammarian’s job is to listen to the way members speak and

  • provide feedback that helps them build their language skills.

  • I also introduce a word for practice and today's word

  • is industrious,

  • which means to work energetically and devotedly. So somebody who’s very hardworking

  • is industrious.

  • If you can, use this in your speeches today!

  • With the Grammarian’s help

  • every member can stretch his or her vocabulary,

  • and if a member says something with flair, the Grammarian calls attention to it.

  • Not all clubs have an Ah-Counter,

  • sometimes the Grammarian does that job, too.

  • And now I would like to introduce Seth, our Timer.

  • Today Seth is our Timer.

  • The timer helps to keep the meeting on schedule and times each speech.

  • The timer uses 2 important tools:

  • a stopwatch and timing lights.

  • With the stopwatch hell measure how long someone speaks down to the second,

  • and using the green, amber and red timing lights he alerts speakers to how long

  • they have spoken and how much time they have left,

  • because an important part of speaking and leading is using your time well.

  • Next Jay introduces Shyanne, the General Evaluator for this meeting.

  • Hello everyone, I’m Shyanne.

  • As the General Evaluator today I’m going to report on the overall

  • flow of the meeting and then I’ll provide feedback on how we can improve our club meetings overall.

  • In her role as General Evaluator Shyanne takes notes throughout the meeting

  • and reports back to everyone giving specific feedback on how well the

  • meeting flowed

  • and also on how future meetings might be improved.

  • For example. Did each member who had a role prepare ahead of time?

  • Did they perform their duties correctly?

  • Shyanne will be sure to point out what worked and what didn’t.

  • In every club meeting there at least two members who will present a speech.

  • These speakers don’t just stand up and start talking.

  • They use the guidelines in the Competent Communication - or CC - manual

  • or the Advanced Communication Series ACS manuals to fully prepare their

  • presentations and achieve the objectives for each speech.

  • The CC manual speeches usually last five to seven minutes,

  • ACS manual projects speeches are five to seven minutes or longer, depending

  • upon the assignments.

  • Every speaker who has prepared a speech in advance enjoys one of Toastmasters

  • greatest benefits:

  • Evaluation.

  • Think of it as having a friend watch you practice a speech and then give you

  • helpful feedback.

  • The speaker usually meets with the evaluator before the meeting and asks to be watched for

  • some aspects of the talk.

  • Hi everyone. Leslie is working on project number four,

  • on How to say it.

  • Today Leslie will give a prepared speech and David is set to evaluate it.

  • First he announces her goals and what she asked him to consider while he watches

  • her give her speech.

  • Let's welcome Leslie up to share her secrets of Texas Holdem.

  • Now Leslie gives her speech. She has chosen to present project number four in the

  • Competent Communication manual:

  • How to say it. Hi, everyone.

  • I have a few secrets about Texas Holdem. I play a lot, and I’ve learned that mostly it’s gentlemen

  • on the table. So when

  • a female is coming in, like myself, they don’t think I know how to play. Her objective is to select the right words

  • and build the best sentences to communicate clearly, accurately

  • and vividly.

  • After Leslie’s speech club members take a moment to jot their feedback on an

  • evaluation form, that they will give directly to Leslie.

  • Shell use that feedback along with David's evaluation to improve her speeches

  • is in the future. Areas of study and practice include: organizing your thoughts,

  • getting to the point,

  • delegating, mentoring,

  • controlling your voice,

  • working with visual aids,

  • getting comfortable with gestures and more.

  • Nicolas is giving a prepared speech, too. He is working towards an advanced

  • communication goal.

  • The title of the speech is: How my dog found me.

  • Thank you, Jay.

  • Oh...

  • Talk about a subject that they really touches my heart

  • because not only is this a story about how my dog found me

  • but it's how I found my wife.

  • In addition to prepared speeches we always set aside a few minutes for

  • Table Topics.

  • This is often the most challenging and the most fun part of our meetings.

  • And now I’d like to introduce Joyce, our Topics Master.

  • Situations come up in everyone's life, where they have to think fast and say just

  • the right thing.

  • It might be a job interview, a sales meeting or dinner conversation.

  • We use Table Topics to practice and hone the skill of impromptu speaking.

  • The Table Topics Master prepares questions before the meeting, and participants are

  • given one to two minutes to deliver their response.

  • Joyce is our Table Topics Master today. She always has great questions.

  • Hey Lewis,

  • would you like to come up and tell us about some time you were really scared? Sure!

  • Hi everybody.

  • Mister Toastmaster, and fellow Toastmasters and honored guests; I’ve never been scared a day in my life.

  • Now it’s time for David to offer his evaluation of Leslie’s speech.

  • Based on his conversation with Leslie before the meeting

  • he focuses on the area she was working on.

  • Did she use her hands to gesture well?

  • Did she control her voice throughout the speech?

  • What did she do especially well, and what are some ideas for improvement?

  • Leslie, you did a great job today with the speech, you had

  • very strong eye contact ...

  • After everyone has given their prepared and impromptu speeches

  • the members vote on who they think did best job that day.

  • In Toastmasters members learn how to evaluate meetings and improve their team effort.

  • To do this the meeting functionary roles and the General

  • Evaluator provide feedback to the club, so members can learn what worked and

  • what needed improvement.

  • Toastmasters always want to improve what they do and this includes their meetings.

  • We pass our ballots forward to the ballot counter.

  • Seth lets everyone know if they stayed within their targeted times for their

  • planned and impromptu speeches.

  • This helps members learn how to manage time while speaking. In Table Topics everyone

  • stayed within their time limit, and for our speakers: Leslie, you took four minutes and

  • 35 seconds

  • and Nick, you took five minutes and 42 seconds Great job, everyone!

  • At this point the Ah-Counter, Deborah

  • reports on the number of Ah’s and Um’s that were said with people gave speeches today.

  • Keeping track this way really helps speakers learn how to control their use

  • of filler words, use pauses, and focus on their message. All in all, weve done a

  • very good job today in not using

  • our filler words.

  • I do wanna just make a little note for Lewisstory

  • you usedand so

  • so it just sort-of connected all your sentences and was one giant run-on

  • sentence. But everything else was great. Yeah, really good.

  • As Grammarian, Danielle reports on how well everyone did with their words choices.

  • She tells us which speakers remembered to use the word of the day, if one of the

  • table topics participants used a nice turn of phrase to describe something

  • and if anyone used a word or sentence incorrectly. I’m please to report that

  • everyone who use our word of the day used it correctly,

  • and Nicholas was industrious in his phrasing using words like precocious and

  • industrious to describe his dog,

  • and Leslie educated us as well as entertained us telling us about her

  • industrious career as a poker player. Great job, everybody.

  • And now the moment weve all been waiting for:

  • Ben (???), our Sergeant at Arms presents ribbons for best speaker

  • evaluator and table topics participant.

  • Hi everyone. Ballots are in, and counted.

  • Best evaluator for today is David.

  • And the ribbon for best Table Topics goes to

  • Lewis

  • And last but not least the ribbon for best speaker goes toLeslie.

  • Whether you win an award or not, you gain something from each meeting

  • Everyone joins Toastmasters

  • with a personal goal.

  • Maybe it’s a goal to become a more confident presenter,

  • or learn how to run a meeting,

  • or think on your feet ...

  • Whatever it is, you can achieve your goal if you participate.

  • So what's your goal?

  • Terrific meeting, you guys!

  • Thank you for having me as your Toastmaster.

  • Let’s bring Nicolas our club president back up to close out our meeting.

  • I hereby bring the Bright and Early Toastmasters meeting to a close,

  • I’ll see you all next week.
