Brave the elements for a fantastic meeting tonight!

The weather may be dreadful on what is said to be the most depressing day of the year!

Come lift the gloom at Tralee Toastmasters!!

We have two cracking speeches this evening, an education slot and a Topicsmaster armed with an impressive array of table topics.

Eamonn Banann is in the Toastmaster chair.

See you there at 8!

Fear of Public Speaking

If you missed “The Speech” on Sunday night, it is well worth a look on the RTE player. Great to see someone overcoming their fear of public speaking and Toastmasters get a mention too.

What to do when your audience turns your back on you…..

While performing for the troops in Kuwait, every Soldier suddenly stopped laughing, stood up and turned their backs on Robin Williams.

See how he handled it.

Happy Christmas!
