Award-winning Journalists at Stadi Talkers Toastmasters Meeting
This will be a very special Toastmasters meeting with two award-winning journalists giving a 45-minute talk on ”How political speech has changed in recent years”. The speakers are: - Olli Seuri, journalist at YLE (the National Broadcasting Company). Journalist of the Year in Finland 2018. - Jarno Hartikainen, journalist at Helsingin Sanomat. Speaker at the Musta Laatikko talk event at the Finnish National Theater, performing to sold-out audiences. The production was awarded as the best journalistic act in Finland 2018. Jarno and Olli, with two other authors, have just published a best-selling book "Totuuden jälkeen - miten media selviää algoritmien ja paskapuheen aikana" (”Post-truth – How the media can survive in the era of algorithms and bullshit”). The first edition of the book was sold out in less than a month. It discusses political speech, especially in the US, Britain, Russia and Finland. You can learn more for example here (in Finnish): In addition we’ll have a regular Table Topics session (improvised speeches). As always, guests are warmly welcome! Timing is very important at our meetings and for that reason we start our meetings exactly at 18:00 hours. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the meeting begins. The meeting ends by 20:15. Limited seats, sign up early. --- Toastmasters is a great place to learn public speaking and leadership skills in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Ei kannata pelästyä englannin kieltä, Stadi Talkersiin voi hyvin tulla myös, vaikka englannin kielen taidot eivät olisikaan ihan hanskassa. Täällä sitä oppii samalla!
