Currambine: new Toastmasters break the ice

CURRAMBINE Toastmasters held an ‘ice-breaker night’ for two of its newest members this month.

Michelle Webb and Jonas Mandungu received standing ovations after delivering their first speeches at the September 6 meeting.

The ice-breaker is the first of 10 speeches in the initial Toastmasters manual that members work through at their own pace.

It generally marks the start of the Toastmasters journey for a member and allows the club to get to know the speaker more.

After the newcomers speeches, members and guests took part in table topics, putting their ability to speak on the spot to test.

The club meets at the Currambine Community Centre on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, with no charge for guests to attend.
