I’ve had the pleasure recently of attending an advanced club in Dallas called “Improv Masters.” In this club, the attendees are assigned a subject and have 5 minutes to prepare a speech from the Competent Communication manual. It’s like Table Topics on steroids.
They still do regular Table Topics for those not giving a speech, and there are a few other entertaining items during the meeting. This format is great for improving your impromptu speaking.
This club meets once a month at the homes of its members with a pot luck dinner preceding the meeting.
I would like to find out if there are at least 20 members on the Fort Worth side who would be interested in starting a new advanced club with this type of meeting. It would not be just for education, but also for socializing, networking, and just having a good time with fellow Toastmasters and guests, if you would like to bring them.
Please email me if you are interested or track me down at the Fall Conference.
