Attention!Toastmasters人民广场俱乐部—-新开始!

我们新的officer今天正式上任了啊,这里奉上小小的文章,图文并茂哦。

Toastmasters这个非营利组织,每半年俱乐部的officer会换届选举一次,昨天在People’s Square Toastmasters是新officer team第一次整体登场的会议,主题设定为beginning,也是极为贴切。有几大亮点:

1.新主席Spike的首次president’s opening,今后的半年里,每次的会议开场都会看到他的身影。

2.即将奔赴美国读MBA的Brad第一次担任Toastmaster of Evening(主持人),也是他最后一次在我们俱乐部亮相,看到我的相机,他马上摆起了pose,镜头感还是很强嘛。


3.俱乐部曾经的主席Yingdan给大家做了一个关于time investment的分享,时长20分钟,环节设计得非常巧妙,故事开头,穿插练习(放背景音乐),最后以让人思考回味的测试结束(小小会再写篇文专门介绍此次分享)

4.有两位会员做了C9演讲,由于上个term的积累,在今后这半年里面会有大批的CC(完成10个演讲)涌现,图文会议结尾处,新主席Spike为Alex颁奖。

GE Report by Suhail Nasir 090618 meeting

GE Report by Suhail Nasir (China National Champion Of Public Speaking 2008)

Let me start with the President Opening. We can see that Joe was well prepared and his energetic words caught our attention immediately, which was very good, because usually people don’t know what to talk about in the first 1 to 2 minutes, just wasting some time on the stage. Joe didn’t talk about any nonsense and all his words were related to the theme of tonight’s meeting, “challenge”!

Our timer, Ben Dai was very diligent. He was assigned with the role the last minute before the meeting but he still took it seriously. He also facilitated some speakers very well to control the time by showing them the cards but not disturbing them.

Ah counter Sophia Yan also did a very good job. Also assigned with task in the last minute, but from her precise report, we can see she didn’t ignore any minute of the whole meeting.

Our Grammarian was very professional and she gave us a wonderful word. One thing I want to mention about is that I also used the word of the day “conquer”, but I didn’t think you count it. Listening is very important. As a leader, you should pay attention to each single word, because no one is happy to be neglected.

Warming up is my favorite session. Brad Zhang did it in a unique way. One observation, may be that “Obama” is too popular, so it’s easy for people to guess. Next time, I think you can choose a not-that-popular person such as Suhail. J

The table topics session was very exciting. It’s not hard to see that Xiaoxiao prepared those questions very well. As a leader, you must make everything prepared in advance. One thing I want to point out is that a leader is as a boss of a restaurant. No matter what kinds of people coming to your restaurant, all you want to do is to make everything go smoothly. The same theory for Table topic masters, when you’re holding the whole session, you’re responsible for its going smoothly. You should avoid troubles.

I’m so surprised by the three individual evaluators. Each of you gave the evaluation according to the objective of the speech, which was well-targeted. A bad example is that when some one is giving an evaluation for a C2 speech, he also talks about body language or vocal variety. I’m happy I didn’t see it tonight. Because as a leader, you should clearly know what your target is and what is most needed, then you can make it achieved. One suggestion to you all is that try not using notes when you’re giving evaluation on the stage!

I always leave the best in the last. I like the performance of our TME, Peter, very much. You made everything under control. You used some jokes to connect one part with another. I’m still immersed in your made-up “Brad Peter”!

PSTMC会员在AF Special Meeting上的出色表现

2009年6月6日,Amazing Friday俱乐部在四川北路群众影剧院举办了一场500人共同参加的”闯与创”Toastmasters Meeting,这场Meeting创下了Toastmasters历史上参与人数的纪录. 以Meeting参与人数众多且会员多才多艺而出名的PSTMC当然也要在这场会议中好好表现一番.

受到AF俱乐部的邀请,PSTMC与AFTMC合作,在本次会议中呈现了一个爆笑,幽默,讽刺现实,立意深刻的小品.剧中,Edgar Gong, Xiaoxiao Sun, Peter Wan, Joe He, Jessica Yao以及Emma Li都有出色的表现.Joe He与Jessica Yao饰演一对情侣.Jessica Yao背的蛇皮袋上写着两个很大的字:”LV”.

Joe He摆了一个特别大的架势,然后大吼一声:”功夫熊猫”! 雷倒场下一片~Edgar Gong把一个暴发户的儿子更是饰演的维妙维肖,他说,”世界上有两种帅,一种是民工帅,还有一种是真的帅.他是真的帅~!”
Peter Wan和Xiaoxiao Sun饰演的Jessica Yao的父母.
Peter对Edgar说:”我要两辆宝马,中间悍起来,变成悍马!” Xiaoxiao说:”我要房子!要上面一套,下面一套,左边一套,右边一套,前面一套,后面一套,全部都打通!”
Emma Li作为配音,用她的家乡话陕西方言将整个小品的旁白部分演绎的风趣幽默,台下笑声不断.
Jessica Yao饰演的女主角最终选择了Joe He扮演的”功夫熊猫”,Edgar扮演的”真的帅”因为害怕猪流感而逃之夭夭.
另外,PSTMC的四位辩手Phoebe Chen, Zhang Lin, Kelly Peng, Roawin Law与AF的辩论队的精彩对质让辩论赛高潮迭起,掌声雷动.Phoebe Chan作为一辩,伶牙俐齿,将我方支持观点”年轻人事业起步应该选择外企而不是民营企业”说得头头是道.
Zhang Lin一句”XX,你不认为外企将你踢出大门不正是对你的挫折教育吗?”将对方辩友说的哑口无言,台下笑声一片.
Kelly Peng用铁证如山的数据与事实证明了,年轻人在外企比在民营企业受到的培训与锻炼机会更多.

Roawin Law的一句:”为了中华民族的崛起,我们宁愿加班,我们宁愿做外企的熊猫!”让她成为了整场比赛的最佳辩手.
图为Roawin获得最佳辩手后,激动得和队友们拥抱.

最终,虽然我方没有获冠军,但是每位选手不屈不挠的精彩表现,给现场所有的观众留下了深刻的印象.大家都说,”PSTMC,牛!”

除了小品和辩论赛的精彩表现,PSTMC的Jessica Yao,作为Toastmasters全国中文演讲比赛的冠军,给大家献上了她的获奖作品<征服自己>.身穿运动服,背着运动包的 Jessica Yao用她丰富的body language和vocal variety等一系列演讲技巧以及真情实感告诉我们,”林妹妹也可以跑马拉松.让我们征服自己就可以创造一切可能!”

本次活动,PSTMC的会员们给与了AFTMC很大的支持与帮助,AF本次的Special Meeting也获得了圆满成功.

PPT设计分享

分享:来源于小小的博客:http://xiaoxiaosun1978.blog.sohu.com/118660807.html

上周六,应Lighthouse Toastmasters邀请,到其俱乐部分享了15分钟关于PPT设计的内容。
基本内容和之前在北京 convention上是一样的。不过因为时间少了一半,且在北京时现场播放的案例(PPT+视频)占据的时间有些小多,所以这次把结构调整了一下,内容 也做了删减。还要特别感谢Yingdan在我的Twitter上获知我要做分享后,特别给我发来短信,给了我很多内容设计方面的建议。

1.案例分析
这部分我拿到了之前一个星期LH搞2周年庆的PPT,因为用他们自己的案例,会感觉比较亲切。

原始页面

小小的版本。我的思路是,既然是lighthouse,最好能找一个质量不错的图出来,全屏。

当然,也可以用一些生日的元素,比如蜡烛。:)

这个页面是一首诗的预告,现场就是四个人拿着本子念诗的过程,诗很长很长。

我的建议是不妨在诗歌的每个部分,放一张PPT。这样可以增加观众的兴趣。

于是我就做了一张封面,给每个章节做了一张PPT,还配上了音乐,播放了一下。:)



2.7个习惯

这次所用的7个习惯,没有做更改,时间的关系也没有在每个习惯后面加案例。点这里查看之前所用完整版7个习惯
不过在全部7个习惯讲完之后,我加了一个回顾的页面,并且告知大家,若无法做到7个习惯,有两个是我觉得最关键的,那就是箭头所指的。


3.Toastmasters PPT欣赏
A story about Toastmasters点这里查看

因为时刻留意Timer的提示,所以正好用了15分钟就讲完了。

整体感觉比在北京convention上面自然,内容设计也相对合理。

再一次体会到Toastmasters是一个learn by doing的地方,且失败也没有关系,因为下一次会失败得漂亮一点,越来越好!
