Prepared Speaker


A major portion of each meeting is centered around three or more Prepared Speakers. Speeches typically last from five to seven minutes.
Preparation is essential!
The Speaker:
•Is responsible for finding their own replacement if they are not able to speak and notifying the Toastmaster of the meeting
•Should work through the Toastmaster communication manuals
•Should inform the Evaluator about what particular elements they are working on, such as voice, gestures, elimination of notes, etc. Let her/his evaluator know about goals and personal concerns
•Should provide the Evaluator with their manual in order for the Evaluator to make written comments about the speech
•Must tell the Toastmaster of the meeting how many minutes are required for the speech

A few tips:
•Check the schedule to see when you are on the programme
•Choose a seat that makes it easy for you to get to the lectern
•When you begin your speech, acknowledge your fellow Toastmasters and guests
•Plan your speech closing as carefully as your opening. Those finishing touches will bring on the applause and really make a mark!
•Never thank your audience. The audience will be thanking you for your effort with their applause
