Last Tuesday I was Table Topics master at my local Toastmasters meeting, which means I had to choose questions or topics that the other members had to give a one to two-minute speech. Being that the 4th of July, Independence Day here in the United States, is approaching, I decided to theme my questions about that holiday in particular.
Last November, my wife and I joined our local Toastmasters club. Toastmasters, for those who are unfamiliar, is a public-speaking development group. I’m not sure how good a speaker I am, but I know regardless of how good or bad I am, I want to improve. In fact, one of my new year’s resolutions for 2018 is professional a personal development. So Toastmasters just makes sense.
