Tales & Tellers

All of us have different strengths and weaknesses in storytelling. What are yours? Do you wish a fairy godmother would suddenly appear and magically wave away those pesky nervous tics or endow you with a fabulous vocal instrument?

Unfortunately, no fairy godmother was available, but Tales & Tellers Toastmasters is a great venue to hear accomplished speakers, to practice storytelling, and to learn from excellent technical presentations that focus on a different storytelling skill set.

Toastmaster Time TV

Toastmaster Time TV, the district’s television show, gives D57 members the chance to speak on television in a real TV studio. The show gives members the chance to hone their skills in a very different environment. Speak on Toastmaster Time TV to build experience by speaking to a camera! While it may sound challenging, our guest speakers are always happy with their experience.

Heart2Heart Toastmasters

This Toastmasters club explores  communication between relationships of all kinds. If you are in ANY relationship (relatives, friends, romance, co-workers, etc.), then you are invited to learn and share what you know about communicating with the opposite sex.

Prep Squad

The Prep Squad is a club that works to prepare our members for contests and other high-stakes speaking opportunities. We use a rigorous and often riotous round-robin evaluation format to give each other the support and encouragement to do our very best.

Membership requirements are very strict. We do require a minimum of an Advanced Communicator Bronze award. Prospective members must attend two meetings and participate in the evaluation process. New members are inducted only after a unanimous vote of approval from all members.

You will learn the keys to having a club charter the very first meeting and have the opportunity to practice with experienced toastmasters who have conducted successful demo meetings before. Sponsoring or mentoring a new club earns you credit toward your Advanced Leader Silver award.
Being part of a demo team is one of the most rewarding things you can do in Toastmasters. Come visit our club and find out what it’s all about.visit club website
