Last Revised: August 20th, 2019

At least one day prior to the meeting you prepare a very brief presentation which will help members to be better communicators or leaders. A presentation which includes one or two practical tips often works well. Common topics include strategies to improve your speaking, ways to maximize your Toastmasters membership, highlighting a role and proper role performance, etc. You may wish to obtain ideas from the monthly Toastmasters magazine, books on public speaking or leadership, or ask for input from fellow Toastmasters. You may wish to use notes, especially if you are new to public speaking.

You will present early in the meeting. When recognized by the Toastmaster, you present your topic.

Note: You have ninety seconds maximum; watch the timing lights. If you take longer, you will eat into time reserved for Table Topics.
