Hello 2013/2014 term!


Time flies when you’re having fun, and we at Exact ADC Toastmasters have just realized that we’re now already in the 2013/2014 term. We’ve installed a new committee, said hello to new faces, and are looking forward to more fun this term. Here’s a quick recap on what went on recently:

  • June 2013 – Committee installation for the 2013/2014 term.
  • September 2013 – Exact ADC Toastmasters Club Humorous Speech Contest.

Time may have flown, and some new faces may have replaced some familiar ones, but one thing that keeps on going is the never-ending learning and self improvement you get out of club meetings. As Mark Twain, American author and humorist once said “It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech”, you couldn’t ask for a better place to get a kick-start on preparing your impromptu speeches 🙂

And while we’re at it, we’ll post some tips and tricks that may just lead you to discovering a potentially hidden talent. Let’s start off with a quick one:

Find your “stomach” voice

Those of you who’ve ever been involved with any kind of stage performance (or watch enough reality singing competitions) will be familiar with the art of speaking (or singing) from your stomach, and not from your throat. While we’re all blessed with different voices, we all have the capability to discover that “stomach voice”.  Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Take a deep breath.
  2. Open our mouth. Don’t be shy 😉
  3. Now open your throat.
  4. And say “ahhhhhhhhhh” for as long as you can (you may discover your voice is deeper than you thought it would be). Make sure that the noise you are making is coming from your stomach.

It’s OK if you don’t get it the first time, as practice makes perfect. Tune in for the next post for some more tips and tricks!
