Member Video: The Margolins Meet Nature

Toastmaster Lois Margolin shares the challenges of going on vacation when each member of your family has a different idea of what a vacation ought to be.

New Toastmasters improve their public speaking by working through a series of projects in the Competent Communication manual that focus on different skills. For Lois, this was speech #4 “How to Say It,” focused on the use of vivid language.

Note: Having your speech video recorded is optional and we usually share the results privately, for the speakers’ own benefit. This one is being published by permission, for the benefit of future members of Club Awesome looking for a better idea of how Toastmasters works.
