For a long time now, Goa SHG meeting has been a 2-people affair. This Sunday as well, we both met, with our first Toastmaster’s meeting as members, at the back of our minds. Highly inspired by it, we decided to base our agenda on the lines of Toastmasters.
We started with the impromptu speeches. We gave a topic to each other, and the other had to speak on the topic given to him. We had two rounds of impromptu speeches.
Then we had one round of (sort of) prepared speech, wherein the speaker can talk about any topic which he himself can choose. Thus in this round, we chose a topic that we were comfortable talking about.
Finally, we had a very interesting round of story telling, wherein one begins and the other has to continue. This story went a long way, and by the time it ended, we both were the authors of a very neat, horrifying and scary kind of a story which perhaps Ram Gopal Verma may consider for his next horror film 😉
Even though it was only two of us, all the speaking rounds were fun. And what added to the fun was the feedback that we gave after one’s speech. This marathon towards better communication is great fun… indeed!
