Dear Imperial College Speakers Members and Guests,
Join us this week for a special “Speak A Thon” meeting! Due to popular demand for speech slots, we have changed up the meeting format to allow 5 prepared speeches and 5 evaluations. This week, you’ll get to hear two Icebreaker speeches from our new members Xiaolei and Ronnie. After that, Chuka, Sadia, and Paula will give their prepared speeches.
We are still looking for speech evaluators as well as a Toastmaster this week! If you haven’t tried these roles yet, now is a great time to do so.
The meeting is on Thursday, February 21st, at SAF room 121 at 6:15 pm to 8:15 pm.
Our club speech contest is only a week away – there are still contestant slots available for speech and evaluation contests as well as supporting roles for the event. If you’re interested, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or our FB page/group.
Hope to see you there!
best wishes, Katia H
Dear Imperial College Speakers members & guests,
Are you looking to make a true connection with a special person this Valentines Day, but don’t know where to start? Then come to our Valentines Day Mentoring Speed Dating event this Thursday, February 14th, at 6:15 pm to 8:15 pm at SAF 121!
The “special person” we are referring to is your Toastmasters mentor (of course). A Toastmasters mentor is a person who helps and supports a new member through at least 3 speech projects to help the new person gain confidence and independence as a public speaker and leader. In the mentoring speed dating session, potential mentors will chat with prospective mentees to get to know each other. After the meeting, the club committee will review the mentor and mentees’ preferences and assign 2 mentees to each mentor. It’s not too late to sign up as mentor or mentee!
We will also feature 3 prepared speeches in the second half of the meeting. Kasia will give a speech bringing history to life, Flavian will talk about love, and Niklas will give his Icebreaker – a stimulating programme all around!
There will be free chocolate candy and brownies for everyone!
best wishes, Katia H
