Mankato Toastmasters Club has had a very good year.  In 2012-2013 we won a distringuished Toastmaster Club award and this year 2013-2014 are on track to  win the award again.   The Mankato Toastmasters Club 175 began in January of 1941 and has been in continuous operation ever since.  We actually have a guest book dating back to 1951, although we now ask for e-mail addresses instead of home addresses.   

In addition to presenting prepared speeches, everyone gets the opportunity to participate in many speaking exercises. 

 One of these is Table Topics, which is an impromptu speaking exercise that helps our members  to learn to think on their feet. 

There are also opportunities to be the Toastmaster for the evening or the Table Topics Master

Another good exercise in listening is being an evaluator for both speeches and/or for the meeting.  

Each of these exercises has a specific education purpose to aid in your self development.  

Other terrific exercises in listening are the “grammarian” and the “ah counter”.  Becoming aware of what we are saying is half the battle to better communication.
