At our April 5th meeting, three speech slots became available due to a cancellation of a prepared speech. To fill the agenda, the chairperson put out a challenge to anyone at the meeting to volunteer for an impromptu speech.
Not one, but three people put up their hand! A record at Vancore! As the meeting progressed, each speaker had 10-20 minutes to think about their speech before being called up. Ben, a brand new member, spoke about alternative energy. Connie, a seasoned member, spoke about nuclear energy. Shan, a first-time guest, spoke about what it means to be an introvert. What made them successful was speaking from their hearts on subjects that matter to them. Kudos to all the speakers for stepping up and displaying their courage!
Watch the short training video below on how to deliver an impromptu speech. The impromptu speakers at the Vancore meeting employed many of the techniques and tips discussed.
Vancore meetings provide a supportive environment for members and guests at various levels of their speaking journey. Come to a Vancore meeting and practice what you learned. Practice makes perfect!
