If you’re like most people on planet earth, the dream of speaking with confidence in public seems to be a long way off and maybe even unattainable. Hutchinson Toastmasters II is committed to helping anyone who dares to dream, not only become a competent communicator, but an effective leader too.
Are there advancement opportunities in your place of employment? Maybe you are looking for a career change, or just want to share your ideas effectively.
Stop by and let us show you just how easy it is to reach your dreams and aspirations. No need to become a member to visit. Guests are always welcome and we are confident you will be pleasantly surprised at how much fun Toastmasters meetings are.
Standing in the TSA security line at the airport. Watching for your daughter to come home from her first date with a boy. Enduring the last four hours of work before you go can go on vacation. These are all things that seem to go by especially slowly. Come prepared to this Toastmaster meeting to talk about things that happen slowly. It will be more exciting than watching paint dry.
“Finally!!” is our meeting theme for Thursday, May 2nd. Do you have that 1 achievement you “finally” will, or have achieved? Come join us for a fun-filled meeting to tell us about it and hear about the challenges and journeys of others on their quest to finally reach sought after goals.
One of the most stressful experiences of everyday living is the job interview. With so much riding on the outcome, making a slip of the tongue or an awkward response may mean that you’re not being hired. The training that Toastmasters provides gives many key tools for improving your success at the job interview. Come this week prepared to share your job interview experiences and learn from others the secrets to success.
April is a big month for Division Speech Contests, with Prairie Division just completing their competition April 6th. Our very own David Broll represented Hutchinson Toastmasters II well, with his colorful and animated speech of adventure in Ginormisville, which his daughter helped him write.
Speech Contests provide a fun and festive atmosphere for Toastmasters to stretch past their comfort zones in developing communication skills and also provides TM members a vehicle to enhance and broaden their leadership skills, as they fulfill the necessary roles in helping to carry out a successful contest. David continues to set the example for others to follow as he participates in the Fall and Spring contests year after year.
We look forward to hearing from David Broll and his fellow teammate David Neimela in the Fall contests, coming soon
Fast – a word with many meanings. Lightening fast! Hold fast! Not eating during a fast. Fast friends. Fast as in ahead of schedule. Disposed to dissipation – like a fast crowd. Come prepared to talk fast… or about fast.
Just another action packed meeting for Hutchinson, starting with our Spring Speech Contest. David Niemela (left) made his debut and placed 2nd in our Tall Tales Contest. David Broll (right) placed 1st, letting everyone know he can do this stuff with his eyes closed
Walter Marttinen was recognized for showing us how its done with the 1+1 Membership building program, as Hutchinson gained one new member because of Walter’s efforts.
Hutchinson also has a new look with a new Banner. Thank you Kay DeSmith and John Schafer for making it happen .
When you walk into a situation, are you the first person to “get it”? Are you the person who figures out what’s happening and explains it to others so that they “get it”? Sherlock Holmes seemed to grasp the less than obvious, and usually explained it to Dr. Watson. Put your mental track shoes on as this week as you will explain why three objects are or are not related – or why they would be together in one spot. Isn’t it elementary, Dr Watson?
The Hutchinson Toastmasters II club meets every Thursday strong> morning from 7:00 am to 8:00 am. I'm inviting you to attend. We meet in room 7309 in the Development Center at Hutchinson Technology, Inc. Map
