This is a group for Pumpernickel Toastmasters club 3584407. We are an open Toastmasters club with a fun and supportive atmosphere.
HAVE YOU EVER... Attended a bad meeting? Seen a presentation that went on for a long time and you’re not sure what you got out of it? Seen a wedding speaker droll on for way too long? Been part of a group with a poor leader? Maybe things were not well organized? Do you know someone who one-on-one is confident and collected but once they talk in a group of people, they shut down and are a completely different person? How do we improve these skills? Practice! It is tough to get this practice in before it really matters, before it’s time to pitch that proposal, take over and run a meeting, or even interview for that promotion. We create a welcoming, supportive environment where our members can grow and be encouraged to improve and practice their skills in many levels.
Pumpernickel Toastmasters meets every Wednesday from 12:00pm to 12:50pm at the Graco Riverside Office Complex Building (65 11th Ave NE Minneapolis, MN 55413 (https://goo.gl/maps/GhntRZJRrbS2)) in Room 220. There is free parking! Outside guests must register with reception. Please RSVP so we know to expect you!
Usually, we hold what we refer to as our "standard" Toastmasters meeting. This includes two prepared speeches (usually 5-7 minutes), impromptu "Table Topics" speaking (up to 2 minutes), and evaluations.
One meeting a month (usually the first Wednesday of a month of after a holiday) is reserved for a Table Topics meeting. In this meeting, we run three table topics sessions and each table topics speaker is evaluated!
