如何更好的准备“Humorous Contest”

今天是Shanghai People’s Square Toastmasters Club的第289次会议,今天会议有一个重要的环节就是分享:
小小分享了如何更好的准备“Humorous Contest”
她提供了准备的方法就是

准备Humourous Contest 4“R”原则:

1.Rule

首先要知道Toastmasters humurous Contest的比赛规则,这样才可以更好的准备自己的比赛演讲;

锤子

2.Write

小小推荐了两个学习的方法,第一个方法就是去Youtube搜索Champion Videos, 第二个就是去搜索Champion演讲的Scripts,可以模仿冠军的演讲,学习他们演讲的内容和表达方式。

little people,big pen

3.Rehearsal

需要不断的练习,因为Toastmasters的比赛对时间的要求非常的好,哪怕你超过时间1秒都会让整个演讲fail掉,而且humorous contest一个很重要的要素就是,你需要考虑给观众“笑”的时间,要把这部分的时间考虑到你的演讲当中去,

Darren Lacroix

看看世界冠军Darren的自己的录像带,就知道他练习了多少次,冠军背后都是不懈的努力和练习。

4.Resource

Internet是最好的资源了,小小推荐了台湾的Toastmasters网站,上面有很好的参考信息。

First time as TME by Nika Xu

PS Toastmasters Club美女会员Nika Xu的总结文章,Nika上一届做Secretary的时候总是给大家发来一份份充满创意和童真的Agenda。她觉得上次会议自己在Toastmaster of the Evening上做的不好,平时她一直严格要求自己,每次都会反思自己哪里做的不好,哪里做的好,我想她的进步跟她的总结有非常大的关系。相信只要尝试总归会有进步。今天的记录就是明天成功的基石。Toastmasters是一个鼓励你尝试的地方,我们看到一个个会员从害怕演讲到挥洒自如,从不会公众演讲到可以作为主持人引导会议,都是在Toastmasters Stage上面训练后的结果。加油!

—————————————-

First time as TME

Last meeting(20090728), I just tried role—TME, who host the whole meeting. I  score myself 65.

I list some areas I need to improve.

1)Tone Setter

Toastmaster of the Evening means you need set tone for the meeting, but if yourself not so comfortable, how do the audience?

TAKE IT EASY

More Practise

2) Speaker Introducer

Two things about this:

2.1) one  thing is “repeat”, such as we I say welcome sb… i always use Let’s welcome sb …, no changes.( this needs daily accumulation)

Perhaps I can say:

let’s invite…

Let’s warmly welcome…

Let’s put our hands to welcome…

please put our hands together for…

let us hear from…

Let me call upon…

I’d like to invite…

2.2) another thing is body language

when I shake hands with speaker, I used to go to the speaker, instead of waiting for the speaker coming to the stage. This may lead the speak not stand on the center of the stage.

3) Applause Leader,Appreciation Giver

yes, I do applause, I do say thank you, but I did these in a rush. no pause.  Anyway, the effect is not so good.

4) Energizer

I don’t think I injected energy into this meeting 🙁

Especially in the end, I prepared to closing remarks.but I don’t know why I just say one word “thank you” without energy, no sincere.

5) Speaker

I also a speaker on the stage. Thanks to the Today’s grammarian, she picked a lot of bad usage of my speeches: pronunication of “sharing,snack”, silent (should be Please silence)

Frequency, One weak Point!

6) Host

I am not so smart to deal with the special situation.

Forget new added sharing session

After break, people still talked, and I am awkward and just say “silent pls, silent pls”

Miss the introduction of “New member induction”, then not smart to deal with it.

Anyway, although I blow the meeting, I do like the feeling of a tme. I will try next time and try to be better.

你害怕什么你就去尝试什么吧!

你害怕公众演讲吗?那你就来People’s Square Toastmasters Club吧!

每周二晚老时间老地点不见不散。

PS Toastmasters Club 090707 meetingGE Report by Julian

This GE Report is written by Julian from Microsoft.

People’s Square Toastmasters Club 090707 meeting.

—————————————————————————–

GE Report

Room and accomodations

A/C was a little loud, but was switched on and off as appropriate by members

Good seating, just enough for the members and guests with a few more empty spots for latecomers

The center aisle is a little crowded with the camera there. If the camera is not in use, it might be better to take it away.

Please keep the PPT off if not in use as it is distracting

Brad (TME)

Keep your stories and comments focused. Its good that you make reflections and comments about what people had to say, but take it a step further and use what was last said to transition into the next topic.

Keep transitions smooth, don’t say the same sentence, or use the same structure twice. After asking the person to come up to the stage, don’t say anything more until they take the stage. Wait for them to come up, don’t go off the stage of to the side to meet them.

Spike (TTE)

Good acronyms. ‘SS’ Simple Structure ‘PREP’ Point, Reason, Example, Point.

Good use of PREP structure to give feedback. Specific examples are important.

Good to point out good use of ‘vivid’ laguage.

Peter Wan (IE C9)

Good insight about ‘3 parts to persuade’, followed by examples of how speaker demonstrated each section.

Good suggestion of how to improve the ‘power’ of their speech

Joe He (IE C9)

Good examples of how speaker used concrete proof with photos and statistics.

Good examples of how speaker choose a good topic to connect with the audience and appeal to their emotions

Remember to discuss why good habits are important? Why do we want to connect with the audience? So that our messages have more impact and are received more effectively by the audience.

Christine Grammarian

Good example of how to use word of the day, you included a lot of information about it

The writing on your paper is too small, it is impossible to read the smaller fonts

Rowain Ah Counter

Good interaction with the audience

Good explanation of Ah counters function, and why the role is important.

Edgar Timer

Good job, no comments

-End of report
