In this short speech, I talked about why and how I got into karate.
At the District 57’s Toastmasters Leadership Institute (TLI), Sean Adams gave an excellent training session “Social Media for VP-PR”. Solid take-aways on: 1. online and offline approaches you can use to promote your clubs; 2. tips on quality content; 3. promoted, then what?
I attended the International Speech Contest and got 2nd place in my area contest. I had a wonderful time practicing my speech in different clubs and got ~70 evaluations.
It’s not about winning the contest, it’s about enjoying myself during the practice. I just enjoyed telling my story, and delivering a great message to people who spent time watching. Compared to my last contest, I felt far more relaxed, open, and flexible in expressing my emotions. My friend Juan said, when you are relaxed, you are yourself. It’s so true.
Membership building ideas from our monthly District Executive Committee Meetings (DECM) in December 2013, District 57.
I enjoyed a wonderful journey of learning public speaking by participating in the Toastmasters Humorous Speech Contest.
