Description Overview
Category Speaking  Type Information

Prepared Speaker

The Prepared Speaker gives a speech for which prior notice has been given.


Duties:

  • Deliver a speech from a Toastmasters communication manual
  • (see educational awards)
  • Provide the speech's title and timing to the Toastmaster of the meeting
  • Give your manual to the Evaluator, who will study the objectives and make written comments about the speech
  • Inform the Evaluator about any additional aspects you would particularly like observed (for example: voice, gestures, use of notes)


A few tips:

  • Check the Agenda to see when you are scheduled
  • 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
  • (This is not compulsory)
  • Have a beginning that grabs attention and draws people into the speech
  • Have signposts to show where the speech is going
  • Have a memorable ending - such as an expression that sums up what you have said, or a call to action
  • There is no need to thank the audience - they should thank you with applause
