The ability to think and speak quickly is an important skill that will help you be successful. That’s why the Table Topics portion of the Toastmaster’s club meeting was developed. Table Topics provides you with the opportunity to practice impromptu thinking and speaking. You learn how to present your thoughts in a clear, organised manner with a minimum of preparation.
You will be given a topic by the Table Topics Master and you have between 1 and 2 minutes to present your response. It is a little bit like a mini speech. Structure and organise your points to have a opening, body and conclusion. The more you participate in Table Topics, the easier they will become and your confidence will grow as a result.
