Each day, opportunities arise where you may be asked to give a speech, offer a toast, provide feedback or, if you are in the job market, to participate in an interview. As a Toastmaster, you already have an advantage because you’ve invested the time to hone your communication skills, but you can always use a refresher or quick tips to put your best foot forward.
To help you navigate those speaking-related situations that arise every day, Toastmasters International launched a new video series. Toastmasters Time-Tested Communication Tips are engaging five- to seven-minute videos that offer proven advice for improving your skills in a variety of communications scenarios. With Toastmasters Time-Tested Communication Tips, you can quickly brush-up on your communication skills and gain the confidence you need.
The first two videos released are “Five Basic Public Speaking Tips” to help you to master a topic and present it well; and “Job Interviews” to bolster your confidence through focused listening, articulate responses and effective body language.
Over the coming months, additional videos will be released covering these topics:
- How to Offer a Toast
- When Things Go Wrong
- Finding Speech Topics
