On Tuesday, Speak Up Toastmasters celebrated another successful open house. Pam Gorman, the District director covering most of New York State, was in attendance encouraging prospective members.

The audience was captivated listening to the inspiring speeches given by members Shirley Malone and Leslie Marino about leadership. Eva Miller led the club in table topics combining attendees’ real-life experiences and game shows from the 1950s. She had everyone in stitches laughing. 

Ask member Sarah Kohl why Toastmasters is important and she says, “Realistically, everyone has to give a speech at some point in their life and you might as well enjoy the experience.”

Kohl recently developed a short video for the clubs Facebook page and website.  

Toastmasters is the most cost-effective leadership training available and it's in a friendly, positive, motivating atmosphere. The results are proven! This training can help you move to the next level of your career.

Speak Up Toastmasters had a successful open house on May 22nd at the Emmanuel Baptist Church, located at 190 Oak St., Batavia.

They held a motivating meeting and took applications for new memberships.

Denise Hull's creative ice-breaker speech explained the acronyms that describe who she is. The audience was delighted by the unique way she introduce herself to the club.

Dave Licata's chosen speech was on the importance of taking kids fishing. He gave us some excellent pointers on how to make sure kids have fun and keep their interest in this timeless sport.

The table topics portion of the meeting gave everyone a chance to participate on something they know best, something unique that no one else knows about them. Everyone had fun with that.

The speech evaluators, tasked with finding the high points of the speeches, had glowing remarks for our speakers.
