“So you want to be a speaker?”

The Speaker’s Bureau is looking for a few good “speakers”! Do you have a burning passion about your hobbies, life skills, or business expertise and would like to share this knowledge with others? The D14 Speaker’s Bureau is looking for YOU. The Bureau is a community service that introduces community groups to the talent and skill of Toastmasters members. The true test of your skill is speaking to an audience of strangers. Do you have what it takes to captivate, spellbind, or enthrall your audience? Now is your chance to enlighten and uplift others with subjects of your expertise.

”EXCELLENCE in Leadership! Together We EXCEL!"

Making the decision to change is the first step towards that change. Once a leader decides that

drastically change lives and add vitality to your club and community. This program is specifically designed for any leader who wants to EXCEL in their lives professionally and personally.

Want More Prospects? More Referrals? More Business? More Jobs? More Dates?

Then this session is for you!

This conversation is for everyone. We live in an ever- increasing world of information and exchange. The more we know, the more often we learn that it’s not what you know, but who you know and how they feel about you. Your Network = Your Net Worth! Let’s get together and build both.

This presentation will address speech construction and organization. Main points of emphasis will be developing an outline, creating a dynamic opening to engage the audience, building anticipation within the body of the speech, and finishing with a conclusion that leaves a lasting impression. The mechanics will include creating a thesis statement, selecting and organizing the main points for maximum effect, providing the supporting points, and transitioning from one point to the next, seamlessly.
