Club Officer Roles

As an elected officer of your Toastmasters club, you have the opportunity to aid in your club’s success and gain valuable hands-on leadership experience. Unlike other training programs, where you learn how to be a successful leader by reading books and attending lectures, Toastmasters gives you the opportunity to gain practical leadership experience while helping people learn and grow in their professions and their personal lives.

Using Humor in Speeches

From ToastMaster Clarence:

Below is a Youtube link to a speech from Lou Holtz regarding self-improvement and staying in the game. Should you not know, Lou Holtz is, arguably, the greatest college football coach of all time. Please note his use of humor and the audience behind him. As he starts to lose them with facts and information, his humor brings them back to attention.
