Trailblazer Toastmaster Club 9013 2012 Table Topics Contest FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Trailblazers Toastmasters, East Orlando's PREMIERE Toastmasters organization will be hosting their 2012 Table Topics Contest
407-306 0800, Seth Hammond and the entire Leadership team is proud to invite you to the Club Level Table Topics contest.
If you are not familiar with Toastmasters or a Table Topics Contest here is a little background. Toastmasters is a non profit organization founded just after the turn of the last century by Ralph Smedly, under the belief that anyone can improve they're speaking and communication skills through constant use and encouragement by their peers. Additionally there was established a series of goals and contests that members are encouraged to attain, this, Table Topics being one of the first.
As there is no prerequisite, other than a Toastmaster in good standing, the Table Topics contest is one of Extemporaneous speaking where each contestant is given the subject of heir speech AS THEY APPROACH THE LECTERN.
This require lightening fast reflexes and thinking by each contestant as they have been sequestered, so as to be unable to draw inspiration or unfair advantage from the contestants ahead of them.
The Trailblazers have been meeting in East Orlando for over a decade and have had members from every professional area, from Teachers to Preachers and every aspect in between. The location near UCF is a perfect draw for those matriculating students preparing to enter the job field for the first time, or others who need to 'polish up' their skills perhaps for a career change.
Although some may balk at a 7:30 am start time, many feel that with the availability of a FULL breakfast, or just a cup of coffee from the restaurant, you can start your day off with perfect polish and have some great comradeship at the same time!
No advance communication is needed to observe this contest, however the club is re-establishing itself on the world wide web at: http://9013.toastmastersclubs.org/
Come out, observe the speakers, join the organization or just watch what goes on with speakers so early in the morning!
