Such experienced members are chosen to be mentors to other members. 2. Energetic members who have tasted a considerable amount of success in their quest to become effective speakers. They are highly motivated to learn and pick up new communication skills. New members easily connect with them. 3. New and enthusiastic members are regularly and frequently mentored by the experienced members of our club. The experienced members can understand the challenges faced by the new members like fear of public speaking, trouble choosing a speech topic, etc and help them in their journey of becoming effective in communication and leadership skills.
The Public Speaking process
Each member is assigned an experienced and friendly mentor. The mentor evaluates and understands the competence level of new members and recommends a concrete plan to improve the communication skill levels of the member. The mentor is also responsible for the skill growth of the member.
The member can choose to listen to as many speeches as s/he wants before giving his/her first speech. Each member is given manuals on public speaking. These are valuable resources developed by top public speakers with years of practice and knowledge. By applying the suggestions from these manuals members learn how to manage stage fear, use body language (non-verbal communication), speak fluently, improve grammar and vocabulary, organize the speech coherently, captivate the audience and develop effective communication skills.
Honors and Awards
At the end of every meeting certificates and ribbons for “Best Speaker”, “Best Impromptu Speaker”, “Listener of the Day” etc., are handed over.
