A Welcome Message from our Blog Chair, Eddie McMorrow
We all have our own ways to express ourselves and share our feelings, stories, and knowledge with others. Whether you like to communicate through writing, speaking, painting, or other mediums of communication our District 101 community wants to hear your voice. If you have Toastmasters-related content you would like to share with your fellow Toastmasters, please contact us at email@example.com.
How often have you accidentally started talking in a meeting and forgotten to unmute yourself? And how often have you purposely decided to avoid speaking up, because you lacked the confidence to make your voice heard? That’s the idea behind our theme for the District 101 Spring Conference – Unmute Yourself!
The ability to think on my feet, come up with a cogent response, and smoothly respond helps me on a daily basis. In business meetings, I’m seldom taken off guard when my boss asks for an ad hoc report on project progress.
Vocal variety is the way you use your voice to create interest, excitement, and emotional involvement. It is accomplished by varying your pitch, volume, and timing.
We provide some practical suggestions to increase one’s professional network using Toastmasters and LinkedIn. Learn how to best share your Toastmasters experiences on your LinkedIn profile.
