Cheyenne, WY Toastmasters clubs hosted World Champion of Public Speaking, David Brooks, on Nov 4th. What a great time we
had!!! We had 53 attendees, not counting the young people compelled to be there by their parents. I found out later that several
of them ACTUALLY enjoyed coming. Imagine that!? We laughed well over 100 times, per Dirk Kittredge’s count and learned more than
our brains could handle.
David’s message was clear:
- You don’t have to tell jokes to be funny. Speak about your life (think about it!)
- Keep a notebook handy to write down experiences. You may think you’ll remember them, but most of us don’t.
- Prepare. Write your speeches, practice, know your time and speak from your heart.
Every club in Cheyenne participated by getting the word out and bringing food….FABULOUS food: wings, cakes, cookies, pudding,
juices, and veggies. overflowing
