Important Questions to Ask
Toastmasters meetings are comprised of approximately 20 people who meet weekly or bi-weekly for an hour or two. Participants practice and learn skills by filling a meeting role. There is no instructor; instead, each speech and meeting is critiqued by a member in a positive manner, focusing on what was done right and what could be improved.
The Toastmasters website has information on:
-Giving a Eulogy
-Presenting an Award
-Accepting an Award
-What You Should Have Said
