II. Spring Training Workshop

Esprit de Corps Toastmasters’ Spring Training

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to brush up on your Toastmasters’ skills during two dynamic workshops you can use immediately in your club.

Workshop #1 – Professional Speech Evaluations by Leon Steyn, ATMB

This workshop will emphasize the importance of quality feedback and evaluations by reviewing evaluation criteria and coaching opportunities. The following topics will be covered in-depth through a series of practical exercises: elements of quality feedback and advice; evaluation criteria; overcoming potential obstacles; and four steps to effective coaching.

Leon brings many years of Toastmasters experience to the table as well as a diverse array of work experience in the field of strategic change management and organizational design. Further he is a member of the Coaching and Mentoring Association of South Africa. In a nutshell, he knows what he’s talking about. 

Workshop # 2 – Parliamentary Procedure in Action by Bärbel Wallon, ACS, ALB

            This workshop is the ideal place for Toastmasters to polish an important tool in their leadership toolbox. Bärbel will help participants understand and apply Robert’s Rule of Order (the method prescribed by Toastmasters for running business meetings). Effectively using these rules leads to better debates, clearer decisions and fairer treatment for all members.  This workshop will feature five fifteen-minute exercises enabling participants to experience Robert’s Rules first-hand.

            In addition to her Toastmasters’ credentials, Bärbel leads and facilitates discussions and decision making professionally. Additionally, she has served as the Division F Division Director for the past year, so she knows parliamentary procedure.
