New Member Kit

My “New Member Kit” arrived in the post.

It comes in a cheerful, white envelope with smiling people on the front. Inside, there are interesting booklets entitled “Gestures: Your Body Speaks”, “Effective Speech Evaluation” and “Your Speaking Voice” – all great.

There is a “Membership Achivement Record” (currently blank, of course), which outlines my “Communication track” or “Leadership track”.

Then there are two large workbooks entitled “Communication and Leadership Program” and “A Practical Guide to Becoming a Better Leader”. This is the heart of the matter. There are a number of speeches, each of which takes you a step along the way to becoming a Competent Communicator (formerly called Competent Toastmaster).

This looks like great stuff. Now I can’t wait for the next meeting to try it out!
