Lab Oratories Toastmasters meets at the Biological Sciences Facility in Richland and invites members of the community to visit the club's meetings at no cost.
“Toastmasters provides a supportive and positive environment where members have the opportunity to develop their communication and leadership skills,” says member Shas Mattigod.
Guests have the opportunity to experience a typical Toastmasters meeting. The meeting’s Toastmaster of the day will explain roles played by several members to facilitate the meeting. Attendees will hear short speeches by members at various experience levels. In another portion of the meeting, evaluators will offer constructive evaluations of the speeches given earlier, and a General Evaluator will comment on the meeting as a whole.
Guests can also experience “Table Topics,” in which a “Topics Master” presents topics to inspire 1-2-minute impromptu responses from members. Guests can choose to participate in this off-the-cuff speaking opportunity.
