Communication track tips:

  • Always have a hip-pocket speech ready to go so that you can jump in when last-minute speaking slots become available.
  • Always have your communication manual with you when you speak! This will prevent you from having to "figure out" what speech you gave and on which dates when the time comes to apply for an award.
  • Look for opportunities outside of your club, such as speech-a-thons sponsored by neighboring clubs, events at your place of worship, or opportunities to speak for other organizations. To get credit for other opportunities, all you need is to recruit a fellow Toastmaster to be your evaluator. Note there is a limit of two outside speeches for credit in the Competent Communication manual.
  • Join a struggling club. This will be mutually beneficial - you'll have ample opportunities to speak, and you will be helping the club.
  • Limit the number of advanced manuals you work through. If you are working through four different advanced manuals, it will take you twice as long to get your next award. Concentrate on two at a time.
  • Compete in speech contests.
  • Crave, seek, and learn from feedback.
