Have you ever been confronted by someone regarding an environmental or animal rights issue and you wish you knew exactly what to say as eloquently as possible? Vegan Toastmasters helps you deal with those situations. You will improve your speaking ability in a fun, supportive, learning environment. This is how we typically do it:
We meet upstairs in the Community Room. The stairs are near the registers and coffee grinding area. As you ascend the stairs you will see signs for our meeting.
Our meeting will start with a President's and Toastmaster's message. Functionaries such as Timekeeper, Word Grammarian and Ah Counter will introduce their roles. Then all members and guests will participate, at their option, in the Table Topics session. During the Table Topics session you will have an opportunity to answer short questions in front of the group to practice your impromptu speaking skills.
After a short break, we will listen to speeches prepared by the members. Short evaluation speeches given by members in relation to the main speeches wil follow that. The meeting will conclude with a vote for best Table Topics speaker, best speaker, and evaluator, and will be closed by the Toastmaster and the President. Some of us may also go to lunch together as a group afterwards.
Join the fun!
