competent communicator manual speechesPractice giving your speech to friends or family members, and strive to make eye contact with some of your audience. You may use notes during your speech if you wish. Read the entire project before preparing your talk. You must take the time to put your ideas together in an orderly manner. You can organize your speech in several different ways; choose the outline that best suits your topic. The opening should catch the audience’s attention, the body must support the idea you want to convey, and the conclusion should reinforce your ideas and be memorable. Transitions between thoughts should be smooth. A general purpose is to inform, to persuade, to entertain, or to inspire. A specific purpose is what you want the audience to do after listening to your speech. Once you have established your general and specific purposes, you’ll find it easy to organize your speech. You’ll also have more confidence, which makes you more convincing, enthusiastic, and sincere. Of course, the better organized the speech is, the more likely it is to achieve your purpose. Word choice and arrangement need just as much attention as speech organization and purpose. Select clear, accurate, descriptive and short words that best communicate your ideas and arrange them effectively and correctly. Every word should add value, meaning, and punch to the speech. Use correct grammar. It also helps release any nervousness you may feel. Stance, movement, gestures, facial expressions, and eye contact help communicate your message and achieve your speech’s purpose. Body language should be smooth, natural, and convey the same message that your listeners hear. A lively, excited voice attracts and keeps listeners’ attention. A speaking voice should be pleasant, natural, forceful, expressive, and easily heard. Use volume, pitch, rate, and quality as well as appropriate pauses to reflect and add meaning and interest to your message. Your voice should reflect the thoughts you are presenting.http://foundrygate.com/userfiles/dlo-homedock-for-ipod-manual.xml

I’m definitely going to be joining. These are very helpful. Thanks Jacqui These articles are intended to complement the CC manual, and provide additional guidance for Toastmasters members. However you have not gone beyond Project 4. Recently I gave my Project 5 speech (Your Body Speaks). The text is available at. Please feel free to refer it in your article if you think it is worthwhile. I find so many useful resources here. Could you please continue the toastmasters post series ?? Recently we had general elections in India and we used Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). I did some research on the process of electronic voting and the EVMs based on which I gave this speech. Here is the link It was all about the wisdom we can gain from common day to day objects. I used a currency note, a pencil and some bananas as props. The speech was very well received in my club. Here is the link to the same This was my topic for Project 9 (Persuade with Power Speech). I talked about Nanhi Kali a project in India which is doing a yeoman service in securing the sponsorships for educating girls from underpriveleged sections of the society. I have been associated with this project for last 10 years and in my speech I tried to persuade the Toastmasters to sponsor at least one girl. The speech was well received. Here is the link Because speakers don’t seem to realize that speaking is performing and so their voices are week, their energry is low, their speech sounds memorized but here goes. It’s okay that they are not yet polished speechwriters or speakers. That’s why have committed themselves to improvement through Toastmasters. The topic was “Three Essential Qualities of a Toastmaster”. Or perhaps I should start my own website and do that ?? It was really helpful and I don’t think I could have pulled off my speeches successfully without your help! I particularly like your links to the first 6 Toastmasters speeches. Do you plan to post information on speeches 7-10. I’d find it most helpful. (I am a Toastmaster). Many thanks Katie Love the ten Toastmasters speeches. Very valuable for TMs or non-TMs. Can I direct our Club Guests to your site. Again, Thanks a lot. Enjoying the Olympics? It is amazing, with all the talking I do with friends. When it comes to formulizing a speech it seems alittle intimidating. I am thankful for this website. I hope to improve as a public speaker. Thanks. Can you please send me information on your rates for training in “Advanced Speech Techniques” and information on how you would deliver training. I have the lexicon resources(passive) and would like that to be active and effective for strong speech delivery, stage presence to influence multiple levels of consciousness within my intended audiences. Thank you for the interview with LaShunda Rundles. The letters after my name indicate that I have completed the first ten speeches, CC, and subsequent levels of expertise within the organization. As an accomplished speaker, and toastmaster, I want to commend your efforts to broaden the horizon of the speaking field, and the breadth to which your site has made speaking look easy. I’m thankful. Kind regards Jothi Toastmaster Div C and A Dist 20 Slowly, I’m improving. However, I still find it difficult to memorize my speeches. Any advice, especially for my next speech? The more time you allow yourself to rehearse the speech, the more it will “stick” in your head.https://connylahnstein.com/images/compaq-tft5000-manual.pdf If you are currently writing out speeches in full and reading them, then move toward using notes which have just the first sentence of each paragraph and a few key words as a means to jog your memory. Then, move toward writing down just a couple keywords for each paragraph of your speech. Then, move toward notes which contain just a couple keywords for each major point or story you are using. From there, its a very small step to delivering without notes at all. I still go back to some of my Toastmasters books when I need a refresher course. When are you doing Speech 8?? K Please assist I am very grateful for your taking the time to put all these precious resources together for us. This is my passion. I have a question here, from Projects 4 onwards, can you use old speech (like the speech you created for Project 3) to delivery your 4, 5 or 6 or any other projects ahead. Appreciate your reply. Thanks Where or how can I find them? Thanks ?? I’m 5 speeches into my CC and have found your detailed info very helpful and inspiring.

The Speaker is to convey the author’s meaning and emotions. I would like to draw your attention to some generalisations on this powerful number 3 and then some references which would be of interest to us, Toastmasters. How do we use it and why is it so popular in our culture? Many triad symbols throughout history are variations of this basic image. Some of its uses are to symbolise: Where they grow together, it is still said that faeries live.Well it all comes down to the way people process information. We like patterns, rhythm and ease of memory. We have become proficient at pattern recognition, and three is the smallest number of elements required to create a pattern. Yet, a similarity is that each is double the previous number. That is the pattern in the sequence. You would not be able to determine a specific pattern from only seeing two of those numbers. Counting to three is common in situations where a group of people wish to perform an action in synchrony: Now, on the count of three, everybody pull. Assuming the counter is proceeding at a uniform rate, the first two counts are necessary to establish the rhythm, and the count of “three” is predicted based on the timing of the “one” and “two” before it.The first time listeners hear your message it might be new and strange. By the third time they hear your message it starts to feel familiar to them. When we hear a list of three things it resonates well in our brain. We see this in book or movie titles:- That opening commands your attention. In Toastmasters, speechwriting is, of course, part of our culture. To be a great speaker you strive to do three things: Expressed in this way, thoughts have a pleasant rhythm, are dramatic and become more memorable. Second, tell them. Third, tell them what you told them. Listen to the occurrence of this Power of 3 in society in general, and also to consider this Powerful tool when crafting your speech content.

They have a valid point: the longer you’re in Toastmasters, the more speeches and more evaluations you’ll see and learn from. I strongly believe that you learn more about your speaking from the evaluations you give others. But the great value of Toastmasters is that you work at your own speed. If you can get through the CC in a few months and are comfortable doing so, don’t let me stop you! We’ve got a lot more for you to learn. I’d recommend you take a look at the Better Speaker and Successful Club series of speeches. They are available for free by download on the Toastmasters.org site. So now they give you an outline of the material (you could probably still find the slides somewhere but DON’T!) and let you create a speech that suits your style and your audience. Toastmasters even has a standard template for Powerpoint presentations for you to use if you like. You can check out their branding information here. In the business world, that skill alone can be vital to your career! These have more application outside Toastmasters. Look at our Advanced Manual series. We have 15 manuals with 5 projects each that focus on different aspects of public speaking. Check out this link to a district’s examination of each of the manuals where you’ll find all of them with a list of the projects inside. You get two manuals for free. Take advantage of this! These clubs have a membership requirement that requires a certain number of speeches be completed before you can join. The Toastmasters in these clubs are often looking for deeper, more insightful evaluations and longer presentation times. Since some of the advanced manual speeches are longer than the average 5 to 7 minute projects, these clubs tend to hold longer meetings but only meet monthly. They are worth your time if you want to move up in Toastmasters. We have several award levels split between two tracks: Education and Leadership. Each award has a set of requirements that you can find on the Toastmasters site. When you finish your Competent Communicator manual, you can put CC after your name too. Finish the CL and you add it “CC, CL” and so on all the way up to DTM: Distinguished Toastmaster, the highest award we give. A rough estimate shows that the DTM award is granted after some 7 hours of on-stage presentations and at least 1.5 years of officer service to a club and the district. This is a challenging course and, in my opinion, the equivalent of a masters degree in practical communication. Like the Boy Scouts’ Eagle Scout award, very few people do achieve it. The estimates run between 2 and 6 of members achieve this. I’m in northeast Ohio, so, of course, I’ll quote LeBron James here.) We want you to stay. Your experience will help new Toastmasters and yourself to improve. Project 10 Next Next post: Welcome to Toastmasters Pathways. The evaluator assesses the speakers or leader, encourages them and motivates them in further development. The Speech Evaluators, using the guidelines in the speech manuals, observe the speeches and prepares written and oral feedback for the speaker on their presentation. As evaluator, you may be guided by the following: Firstly, start off with positive feedback (authentic praise of something they did recently), then provide your constructive criticism on just one thing (at most two things) but offering concrete methods for improvement and End on a positive note. Speech was too long; the timer had already presented this information). The speeches are generally fulfilling assignments in one of the Toastmasters manuals starting with the Competent Communicator manual which contains ten speech assignments. After completing the Competent Communicator manual members choose two of fifteen advanced manuals, each containing five speech assignments. For any speaker, preparation is the basis for success. Throughout the meeting, the timer record and indicate the time for the speakers, using multicolor time card’ reminders. Timer is responsible for monitoring timing of speeches (vary by assignment e.g. for CC manual is usually 5-7 min whist for the advanced speeches is much longer), table topics ( 1-2 minuts ) and evaluators ( 2-3 minutes ). Themes or topics are decided by the Topicsmaster. The objective of Table Topics is to practice the skills of impromptu speaking in those situations in life when we are presented with a question for which we have minimal time to prepare a response. An energy-charged Table Topics session can set the tone for an energetic meeting so, be creative. Grammarian display the “Word of the Day”, define it, give a brief definition with a visual aid, prepare a sentence showing how the word should be used and ask that anyone speaking during any part of the meeting use it. During the meeting the Grammarian listens to everyone’s word usage and writes down any awkward use or misuse of the language (incomplete sentences, sentences that change direction in midstream, incorrect grammar, malapropisms, etc.) with a note of who erred. The objective is to helps meeting participants to increase their vocabulary and to improve their grammar in everyday conversation. Words may be inappropriate interjections, such as and, well, but, so and you know. Sounds may be ah, um or er. Ah-Counter also note repeated words or idioms. It is recommended to categorized Ah-Counter’s log on the way that speakers receive exact record of overlong pauses, overused words and filler sounds. In this way, the speaker gets a clear picture of what needs to be corrected. For a better experience, we recommend using another browser.

For example many speakers request their evaluator to look at their hands and whether they show nervousness or they do repetitive movements. Additionally, if the speaker has given you any additional request you can also explain it now.In the following you can find some advices to make a more effective evaluation: This does not mean that you should not be critic, not at all, you should always give tips for improvement but trying to do it in an encouraging way. It is very difficult to find a perfect speech, so struggle to find something to improve, one or two things is enough. If you cannot find them, just try with suggestions to do something in a different way, even if it is not necessarily better. If you try to evaluate too many things you may end up not providing really meaningful feedback. A tip for icebreakers and project 2 speeches: it is very useful to comment on the use of notes, and what we have learnt about the speaker (for icebreakers). You can also provide tips on opening, body and conclusion structure, voice volume and body language. Those are probably the main things to focus.
