Started by Kent Julian. Last reply by Allan Dubon yesterday. 2 Replies

I'm often asked this question:How far in advance is the typical speaking engagement booked?The answer is, there is no such thing as a "typical" speaking engagement. For instance, in October I have 7 paid speaking contracts (several are for multiple…Continue

Jared, if you are near a larger city, there should be dozens and dozens of TM clubs nearby. TM is broken into districts, most of which are 100-200 clubs, covering different geographical sizes, depending on population density. I live outside Cleveland Ohio. My TM district covers all of NE Ohio, and has 100 clubs. They meet on different days and time in different locations, and they all have a different "feel". See if you can find a few to visit. Visitors get lots of love in TM, with no obligation to join.

Congrats Hutch! What would you say was the most valuable thing you gained from doing that set of 10 speeches?

Comment by Anthony Hutchison (Hutch) on June 5, 2013 at 12:11pm
Speaking of Toastmasters, I received my Competent Communicator status last Monday. It's another great place to keep you in the flow of speaking if you haven't found that place yet.

Evidently I need to join toastmasters, lol! I have heard so many good things about it but never did so. The one in my area is a hard time to attend for me but sounds like it would be well worth it. THanks for the inspiration here all of you!

Stephanie-I am a member of Toastmasters as well.  I used to be so terrified of public speaking that I never slept or ate before a speech and each speech would make me sick because I was so nervous.  I would always have a death grip on the lectern.  Joining a Toastmasters group is a great way to get over the fear.  You will get lots of practice plus the great thing I have learned is that other Toastmasters want YOU to succeed and there are always so many of them willing to step up to help you.

Stephanie...I've met you. You can DEFINITELY do this! You have a sweet, authentic, encouraging spirit about you. That powerful in speaking :)

Comment by Maureen Zappala on June 5, 2013 at 8:46am

I'm the biggest fan of Toastmasters! I joined in 1997 and it changed my life. I'm still quite active in it, more in a training capacity. I give back to the group because I credit it for putting me on the path to being the speaker I am today, which is "PAID". LOL!

Comment by Kim Hall on June 5, 2013 at 7:08am

Stephanie-Ditto to what Jen said about Toastmasters! It is a great place to be supported as you grow in your ability to not only speak publicly, but in all areas of your communication. My husband and I joined 8 months ago and have seen a real difference, and my youngest daughter and her boyfriend joined two months ago. The boyfriend is painfully shy and grew up in a household where no one was interested in what he had to say. :-( He is already carrying himself more confidently and did his icebreaker (first speech) last week. He will tell you it is absolutely a testament to the support and encouragement of Toastmasters. Go, join, enjoy! Where else can you be applauded for almost everything you say? :-)

Hahaha Stephanie thanks for the chuckles this morning. A year and a half ago I was a terrified deer in the headlights - I loved the idea of giving hope and inspiration but hated the idea of actually being up in front of people. Toastmasters really helped. I still get nervous but once I am up there it is almost like a duck in water. Still have a lot to learn but having a blast. If I can do it you can do it. (:

Kent you are a phenomenal speaker that captivated the audiences attention the entire presentation. You truly are an inspiration. I take great encouragement of your story and remind myself to stay in the game of Simon Says (even though I didn't win at CWE).
