That's quite the strategy! 😏 Find better strategies at your local Toastmasters meeting. We meet every Monday 12-1pm!
Here's one of our Table Topics responses this week, from Ken Wimer. The question, from Lee Hearn, was about what he has enjoyed / learned from being in quarantine. For TT, you must speak at least 1 minute (and no more than 2.5) in order to qualify for the vote.
Congratulations to Sherwood Jones who won 1st Place this weekend in the district speech contest!
I think this is true for anyone, not just leaders!
Happy Wednesday. Here are some O words to try using. Have you ever used the word odoriferous? I'm not sure I've ever heard it and definitely have not used it!
For what it's worth, to find these words, I look at a list of SAT words online!
This coming Monday, March 18, Shreveport Toastmasters Club 718 will host our 12-1pm meeting in two places: 330 Marshall Street (as we had been before the stay-at-home order) as well as on Zoom (as we have been during the order).
If you would like to come to the in-person meeting, please go to 330 Marshall Street in downtown Shreveport, to the 3rd floor board room.
If you would rather continue to attend virtually, we will still host the meeting on Zoom. Stay tuned for the Meeting ID (or message me here, or email [email protected] to be put on the list)!
Hope to see you soon, one way or another!
Giving a speech should not be a drag.
With a plan, you've got it in the bag!
So don't fret, don't fear.
The solution is clear.
Visit Toastmasters, do not lollygag!
In the form AABBA, this is considered a limerick. Did you know today is Limerick Day?
Meeting reminder! Tomorrow (Monday May 11) we will meet on ZOOM once again, from 12-1pm. Our meeting ID this week is 832 7691 3539. All are welcome; you don't need to be in the Shreveport area! We start around 11:50am, if anyone wants to stop by early to chat. See you then!
If you've always been curious about Toastmasters, we'd love to have you as a guest. We meet every Monday from 12-1pm. Currently on Zoom, and starting soon, back in person in downtown Shreveport! If speaking in front of people makes you nervous, anxious, or downright scared, we can help!
This week's meeting was another success! Many of our members went with a Star Wars theme because the meeting fell on May 4 (May the Fourth be with you!).
Our Best Speaker was Paige Redfield (top right), who spoke about being a protégé.
Our Best Evaluator was Ken Wimer (bottom).
Our Best Table Topics response was from Lee Hearn (3rd row, 1st face), who responded to the Yoda quote "Do or do not; there is no try."
I hope you'll join us next Monday from 12-1pm on Zoom!
On a related note: Monday May 18, we plan to move to a hybrid style of meeting. Some members will continue to attend via Zoom, and others will meet at the Beaird Foundation at 330 Marshall Street in downtown Shreveport, in our previous location. More information as that date gets closer!
You're invited! Tomorrow (Monday) 12-1pm Central, we'll be meeting on Zoom. Feel free to sit back, relax, and observe, or jump in and participate. We'd love to have you!
Our meeting ID this week is 832-7691-3539. I usually open us up around 11:50, in case anyone wants to come early to chat. Hope to see a few new faces!
