MEETING SPEAKER/PREPARED SPEAKER
Taking on this role improves critical thinking, confidence and public speaking skills
Every speaker is a role model, and club members learn from one another’s speeches. As a meeting speaker, you:
- Prepare, rehearse and present a speech during the club meeting.
- Arrive early to make sure the microphone, lectern and lighting are working and in place.
- Discuss your goals, strengths and weaknesses with your evaluator prior to giving your speech.
