Hahaha oh no i’ve spent wayyy to long stuck on project 5 (of the 10 toastmasters project) coz of a series of events that just happened to prevent me from going to gavel for weeks ;( i need to hunker down and write something. (this doesn’t count). i’ve some ideas but i’m always reviewing them! in the words of our chairperson with a bit of my own drama and paraphrasing where my memory fails:
“Let’s make our speeches interesting! No more speeches on examinations or commodification or procrastination (an especially-common topic that strikes us when we are in its throes). Challenge ourselves.”
Here are my ideas so far :) as related to the topic as possible:
Project 6 – vocal variety: there are 2 types of people in this world (??? i need to research this hahaha i just thought this could be pretty humourous/entertaining)
Project 7 – research your topic: can we create superheroes?
Project 8 – visual aids (we have to speak with slides): every world press photo winner from 1955-2011, taken from http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/every-world-press-photo-winner-from-1955-2011. i haven’t begun crafting my speech so maybe i’m worrying prematurely but i think this may be my most challenging speech yet. the powerful images mean there’s so much -too much!- to convey and i’m afraid i won’t do it justice.
Project 9 – persuade with power
Project 10 – inspire your audience
