Tonight's Topicsmaster

Posted on

I am the Topics Master for the next meeting on 13th March and I want try something a little different. That night there is going to be a “Show and Tell” topics session so I would like all Toastmasters to bring along an item on which they can talk for no more than 2 minutes. It can be anything, animate or inanimate, but it should have a story associated with it! This may be the time for any of you new members to make your first comments as you have the opportunity to prepare a very short speech.

I am looking forward to hearing your tales.
