Cheltenham speakers toastmaster role

Before the Meeting:

  • Assign roles as required by the VP Ed.

  • Chase attendance (e-mail) and reassign roles as necessary.

  • Print agendas for everyone

  • Print a detailed agenda for yourself (called detail at the top of meeting page). This goes into further detail of the meeting and notes when to call for times, votes and feedback.

  • Write your introductory speech (2 minutes). It should cover:

    • Who you are and what the Toastmaster does

    • Structure of meeting

    • Applause for speakers, keeping the space filled. Remind people to shake hands.

At the Meeting:

  • Arrive early to put an agenda on each chair

  • Reserve seats at the front of the room for yourself & the Topics Masters

  • Check to ensure people filling roles have arrived. Note any changes required

During the meeting:

  • Note any changes to the agenda during your introduction.

  • Keep smiling and be positive!

  • Ensure that you lead applause, move quickly to the front when required, shaking hands with speakers before and after they have spoken.

Hints and Tips:

  • The detailed agenda is your friend – there are a lot of transitions so have a good idea of what they are.

  • Have an introduction ready to greet everyone and explain the meeting.

  • Don’t over explain roles – allow the Grammarian, Table Topics Master etc to explain their own roles. Remind Timekeeper to explain their role from the back of the room.

After the Meeting:

  • Make very brief closing remarks before handing back to the President who will do awards etc and officially end the meeting.
