Thank you all so much for coming out and participating in this Toastmaster’s inspired “Bigfork Speaks” event. Skilled speaking is key to our civilization!

Toastmasters is here to serve the community to enhance speaking and leadership skills in all fields from work, events, podcasts, you tube/TV, trainings, political discussions, special occasions, education, etc.

Our initial practice is of 10 speaking tips for more effective communication. We count filler words or ring a bell any time a filler word is used: “Ums" and “Ah"s, So, like, Ya knows! On gal gave a talk about a new website and used 160 So’s in 15 minutes. Or the gal on farm taxes said “Uh” 289 times. These are distractions. Tip #1, tap your foot or take a pause for effect, or a breath if you feel tempted to use a Filler Word. :)

Other things we learn in a fun and safe environment are organizing your speech, economy of words, vocal variety, hand gestures/body language, researching etc. We would love you to join us for regular meetings, each 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at Bigfork Glacier Bank downstairs, Noon to 1 prompt. Great speeches from passionate speakers, all working on personal development and leadership skills.

Call me for any info or help,

Kelly Ware 314-3808
