Our Meetings

The meeting is structured in such a way that it encourages participation from many of those attending.

A typical meeting is divided into the following segments:

Introduction

The Toastmaster of the Evening conducts the meeting and explains the program for the evening (Introduction, transitional comments, etc.)

Speeches

This is the core section. Every meeting 3 to 4 speakers present self-chosen topics but following the structured program in the training manual. Every speech has a different objective such as focusing on body language, correct use of the voice, speech structuring, etc.

Evaluations

All speeches are evaluated afterwards by another toastmaster. Apart from these oral evaluations the speaker also receives written feedback from all the meeting participants.

Table Topics

The Table Topics Master presents one topic or theme with several questions or situations and invites individual members of the club to speak spontaneously about it for 1-2 minutes. This helps the speaker to develop impromptu speaking skills. And it’s always very funny…

General Evaluation

The General Evaluator points out the DOs and DON’Ts of the night. They ask their evaluation team to present their reports. For example, the Ah-counter checks all speakers for any filler words and sounds they may have used like and, so, ahm, etc. The Timer, records the exact time each speaker takes as there are specific limits for each role.

Videos

Matthias – You need to figure it out

Organise your speech – Matthias’ task for this speech was to organise his speech well. Good speech organisation is essential if your audience is to follow and understand your presentation.

Ruta – On the roof

Your body speaks – Ruta’s task was to focus on body language. Body language is an important part of speaking because it enhances your message and gives you more credibility.

Christian – Messages

Research your topic – Christian’s task was to present a challenging topic where he needed to do some research first. Your speech will be more effective if you can support your main points with statistics testimony, stories, anecdotes, examples, visual aids, and facts.

Membership

Membership is affordable

A great value that can change your life. Your initial investment:

You are welcome to come as our guest three times before committing to be a Toastmaster. You can join anytime during the year.

Irgendwann trifft es jeden. Es muss vor Publikum gesprochen werden und statt die richtigen Worte zu finden, kämpft man mit wackeligen Knien, feuchten Händen und einer zittrigen Stimme. Die Blue Danube Speakers Linz sagen dem Lampenfieber den Kampf an: Bei ihren regelmäßigen Treffen trainieren sie......
