Welcome to District 101 Toastmasters!
District 101 serves the area from Mountain View to King City, including Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito counties and most of Santa Clara county – we call it “Silicon to Surf”.
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!
Remember Toastmasters is not just about completing a checklist but gaining something for your life.
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.
Today, clubs have the opportunity to expand their reach to new members, organize and promote meetings and connect members through the use of social media.
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.
