Digital Communicators and Manchester Communicators Joint Club Meeting May 31, 2021 06:00 PM

By Kavita Dulai

Title: Moments of Fun : Impromptu Speaking (Table Topics)
Theme : ‘A replay of childhood stories’

Love it or loathe it, table topics (Impromptu speaking ) is a powerful tool for developing ‘off the cuff’ speaking skills
As Toastmaster’s founder, Dr. Ralph C. Smedley, stated, “We learn best in moments of enjoyment.”

This meeting was no exception, we had fun and loved the creativity and imagination behind this special joint meeting. As with all our meetings we had a special theme which was carefully weaved into the meeting ….. ‘A replay of childhood stories’

Andrew Bennett DTM (District 91 Champion) shared his top tips on Impromptu Speaking.
1 :Step up. Take any opportunity that comes your way for answering a table topic. We answer these types of questions anyway in life.
2 :Be a good Listener (don’t panic ) so you give yourself the chance to capture the topic.
3 : Get into a sense of flow (repeating the questions helps)
He went onto say that ‘everything thing is within us and ready to be accessed to answer any table topic which was beautifully demonstrated by Mar Cano.
Toastmasters is dedicated to every aspect of Public Speaking including prepared and Impromptu speaking. DCOM is a club for those who want to improve their online presence and use of digital tools in their presentations.
