Roles in Toastmasters
Table Topics Master
TABLE TOPICS MASTER SCRIPT
Right now—you’re going to have an opportunity to participate in one of the most interesting and exciting portions of a Toastmasters Meeting--The Table Topics session.
Toastmasters has a tradition -- getting as many people to speak in a meeting as possible. The Table Topics session tries to uphold this tradition so…get ready to speak!!
It’s important to remember that once you see the green card, you have met your goal and you can start to end your talk.
NOTE: The Table Topics Master can call on members or ask for volunteers (not saying that volunteering is best).
Since the purpose of Table Topics is to have meeting participants practice thinking and speaking on their feet,” I encourage everyone - members and guests - to give it a try. To ensure that this happens, I may call on anyone to participate. Now-let’s begin today’s table topics.
Today’s Table Topic Theme:
NOTE: Ideally, the Table Topics Master should have a theme for the day’s table topics. The individual topics normally relate to the theme. However, a theme is not required.
Todays theme is: __________________________________. Now who wants to be the first volunteer?
Return the meeting to the Toastmaster of the Day!! Mister/Madam Toastmaster. Shake hands with the TMOD and return to your seat.
