New club joins net­work of Toast­mas­ters groups

Bray People - - NEWS -

A NEW club has joined the grow­ing net­work of Toast­mas­ters groups in the north Wick­low/South Dublin area.

Dublin South Toast­mas­ters is said to be the first club launched elec­tron­i­cally on Face­book and over the web.

It meets ev­ery first and third Tues­day of the month at Bew­leys Ho­tel Leop­ard­stown at 8 p.m. Guests are wel­come to at­tend the first three meet­ings for free and will not be asked to speak un­less they wish to.

Each meet­ing is com­posed of around 20 to 30 peo­ple. Par­tic­i­pants prac­tice and learn skills by fill­ing a meet­ing role, rang­ing from giv­ing a pre­pared speech or an im­promptu one to serv­ing as timer, eval­u­a­tor or gram­mar­ian.

There is no in­struc­tor; in­stead, each speech and meet­ing is cri­tiqued by a mem­ber in a pos­i­tive man­ner, fo­cus­ing on what was done right and what could be im­proved.

For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.dublin­south­toast­mas­ters.com or find them on Face­book. The Bray Toast­mas­ters Group meets in the Es­planade Ho­tel on Mon­day evenings at 8 p.m.
