What to expect
We gather from 6.15pm for 6.45pm start.
The meetings are structured in 3 parts: Prepared Speeches, Evaluations and Impromptu session.
The first session accommodates up to 4 speakers who present their prepared speeches (usually 5-7 minutes each). The evaluations with valuable and constructive feedback follow straight after. A short break allows you to get a refreshment and speak to us, the members or the Committee members.
The third session is impromptu speaking - the so called 'Table Topics'. A random question is given to a member who has not had the opportunity to speak. The question is answered in a free, off-the-cuff style within 1.5-2 minutes. This is the high adrenalin part, which is as hilarious as a stand-up comedy show!
After the meeting we socialise over some nibbles and a drink.
