Meeting Speaker

Taking on this role improves critical thinking, confidence and public speaking skills

Every speaker is a role model, and club members learn from one another's speeches. As a meeting speaker, you:

  • Prepare, rehearse and present a speech during the club meeting.
  • Arrive early to make sure the microphone, lectern and lighting are working and in place.
  • Discuss your goals, strengths and weaknesses with your evaluator prior to giving your speech.
