INVITATION – 21 NOVEMBER 2012 – TTDI TOASTMASTERS MEETING – “LEARNING BY DOING”

Time: Wednesday, 21 November 2012· 7:40pm – 10:00pm


Location: Wisma WIM, TTDI

 Description: 

A Toastmasters meeting is a “learn-by-doing” meeting in which participants hone their speaking and leadership skills in a no-pressure atmosphere. A typical group has 20 to 40 members who meet biweekly. A typical meeting lasts 60–90 minutes. There is no instructor in a Toastmasters meeting. Instead, members evaluate one another’s presentations. This feedback process is a key part of the program’s success. Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills r
elated to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure. Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking.
Members also learn leadership skills by taking on various meeting roles and working in the Competent Leadership manual. In our learn-by-doing approach, we don’t lecture members about leadership skills; we give them responsibilities and mentoring to help. Then we ask them to lead.
