Table Topics Speaker

Taking on this role improves confidence and impromptu speaking skills.

Table Topics® is a long-standing Toastmasters tradition intended to help members develop their ability to organize their thoughts quickly and respond to an impromptu question or topic.

  • Table Topics typically begins after the prepared speech presentations.
  • The Toastmaster will introduce the Topicsmaster, who will give a brief description of Table Topics and then call on respondents at random.
  • Your response should express your thoughts clearly and succinctly, lasting one to two minutes.
