Testimonials :-

I am really overwhelmed by the prize I got. That too a first prize. Ouch!! I can’t believe it.To be honest, I was really happy when I finished my speech and took my seat. I was happy for the reason that I was at last able to break the ice, I was able to trigger such a huge learned audience. But I did not expect anything beyond this. Well now I have come out of that fear. This event has inspired me to take up some serious reading and increase my vocabulary, and also to prepare speeches on wide variety of topics. Of course not to mention that I would try to be regular for all the toast master sessions to the max possible extent I can and in fact wanna be an active member. Also I am waiting to give my ‘P1’.

Thanks & Regards,
Saikumar.S – List Management Analyst

What happens at an Orators Meeting.

First, we have up to three members give prepared speeches ranging from 5 to 30 minutes in length. Then, we have the Table Topics session, where guests and members alike have a chance to speak for 1-2 minutes on an assigned topic. Finally, evaluators give reviews of each speech.
