I checked in yesterday @ the FSPAC – UBB and I wrote that I was preparing my Ice Breaker speech for Toastmasters.
The Ice Breaker Speech is the first speech every new member gives. It was a challenge for me, because I had to talk for only 6 minutes. This is something new for me and very hard to do, because I talk a lot and usually, my presentation range from 20 minutes to 1 hour. 6 Minutes was hard !
I managed to create empatical links with the audience in the begining, so that I made it MY audience, which was awesome ! They actually liked my ideas and how I presented them and told me that I used more advanced techniques, which appear later on in the Toastmasters manual. They also appreciated that I was natural.
I was glad I could make it all rotate around the Core Idea of my speech, which was iExist.
The problem was that I had to rush a lot at one point, because I was running out of time. I need to improve for the next speeches and I think it will help me to learn not to talk so much. There will be times when I’ll need to fit in the given timeline.
Thank you very much, dear readers. I want to tell you that you should join the Toastmasters in your area. It’s simply well-spent time. You can learn a lot and improve your Speaking Skills. Thank you.
