Witness Protection

When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc. — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers?

 

When it comes to public speaking, I would say it is great to be surrounded by friends. You can establish a rapport with friends, you can engage them and they respond to your speech with laughter, applause and feedback.

Before an important speech, if I am speaking to strangers, I would spend my time getting acquainted with as many people as possible, so that I feel more comfortable speaking to them. Communication is a two-way process and it is not just the speaker but the listener who is just as important for a good interaction.

At our toastmasters club, our members are enthusiastic and we have a vibrant atmosphere of learning, laughter and fun. This makes our guests feel comfortable and welcome!

Why Can’t We Be Friends?

April 10, 2014 1 comment

Do you find it easy to make new friends? Tell us how you’ve mastered the art of befriending a new person.

Life is so short that it would be boring without friends. I am not exactly extrovert or loquacious by nature. But I love to meet people and network.

This was one of the reasons why I joined toastmasters. It is a great way to network, learn and have fun at the same time. I have met and made friends with wonderful people from many parts of the world through toastmasters.

At our club, we welcome guests and it is a great opportunity to learn how to start conversations, make our guests feel at home, engage them and enthrall them. Most of our guests feel welcome and want to join our club.

Blogging and social media also help me to network with people. Another good avenue is meetups with groups pursuing similar interests like table-tennis, music and other hobbies.
