The Orators marched into the end of April and were told how to evaluate their progress thanks to two very different sessions at the latest meeting.
Robert McGreachan used his fifth prepared speech which aims to improve your use of body language and gestures, to talk about his time in the British Army, which included being taught how to walk and march properly.
Jane Cameron presented a very useful education slot called ‘evaluate to motivate’. How to give a good evaluation is a fundamental of Toastmasters which can effectively be carried over into your personal and business life.
The Table Topics session had a ‘changing rooms’ theme with Laura Wallace eliciting impromptu speeches on all matters house and home which produced a number of interesting anecdotes.
John Smith was Toastmaster and Lee Stevenson highlighted good use of English and grammar with great finesse as wordmaster. Pauline and Stephen Dix were the timekeeper and ah counter respectively.
The next meeting is at 7pm on Wednesday, May 9 at the Falkirk and District Association for Mental Health offices, the Victoria Centre, 173 Victoria Road, Falkirk FK2 7AU.
