Park Central Toastmasters
Park Central offers 43 years of experience, excellence and Toastmasters educational programming to help support our members’ goals. We achieve this through our unique meeting format focused on providing members up to six opportunities to give formal speeches.
When: We meet online by Zoom the third Sunday of each month, 1:00 to 3:00pm
A typical Park Central monthly program includes four to six prepared 5 - 7 minute speeches:
First speech focuses on “Tips on Excellence”
Two more speeches from Pathways program
One Pathways editorial speech which expresses an opinion
One Pathways rebuttal speech which expresses an opposing view to the editorial speech. The rebuttal speech is prepared after hearing the editorial speech with often only FIVE minutes to prepare. This can challenge the most experienced Toastmaster! It is a little scary!
Evaluations for each prepared speech: The Evaluations given at the club are motivating, effective, and balanced.
Table Topics: Park Central Members Are Known for Creative Answers to Challenging Questions.
