Wednesday Recap: Public Speaking is Infectious!

Funny thing about public speaking: it’s infectious!

In Toastmasters, sometimes a theme comes up and everyone seems to “catch it,” like a cold. And next thing you know everyone’s talking about it one way or another.

Case in point: this week’s meeting where the sticky subject was the food in your fridge. From the speeches to the table topics session, most everyone seemed to work it in somewhere.

Starting with Deb’s talk about demoing food, Bruce humoured us with visions of food in the freezer for countless years. Vanessa grabbed onto the theme and came up with a spontaneous speech to entertain us on her family’s interesting philosophy on food.

Good conversation has no expiry date.

And we love a good conversation! As a small, intimate club, we have the luxury of creating opportunities to practice not only public speaking, but also the art of conversation. It is these conversations that help us build connection, understanding, and relationships in the workplace and at home.

Speaking of preservatives, all Vancore members are encouraged to preserve the energy and integrity of the club by getting dues paid by Sept. 30.

Want to learn what you get as a member? Curious to know why it’s the best value personal and professional development that’s available?

Join us each Wednesday at 3:30 PM for learning and fun!

Back in 2019 when we met in person, we got to experience some cool venues like this one on a rooftop overlooking the Vancouver skyline. We can’t wait to be able to do this again soon.
