Hybrid Meetings Training for District 47

Tuesday July 13, 2021 7:00 PM EDT to 8:00 PM EDT
 
Club Awesome President Deborah Pinnock leads a hybrid meeting

Register Now for this workshop on making hybrid meetings work for you.

After more than a year of being forced to meet online (or not at all), Toastmasters clubs now have choices to make. Will they continue meeting entirely online? Phase out online meetings entirely and get back to meeting in person? Or choose the third option: a hybrid meetings format where some members meet in person but online attendance is also allowed?

Many clubs are experimenting with hybrid meetings right now, at least as a transitional measure as the pandemic comes to a close (we hope). Reasons to continue it long term include accommodating members who want to be able to attend when traveling on business, or even after permanently moving away. Hybrid clubs can, if they choose, attract members from far away and invite guest speakers who would not be able to visit in person.

However, the choice to go hybrid should not be undertaken lightly. Doing it right means overcoming technical and logistical challenges and thinking through issues related to club culture. A poorly organized hybrid meeting can leave participants frustrated because they can’t hear or can’t see what’s going on, or they feel left out of separate conversations happening either in the physical meeting room or online.

This workshop will cover the planning you should undertake to make the hybrid meeting experience one that reflects well on Toastmasters as an organization and your club in particular. Workshop leader David F. Carr, DTM, is acting as production manager for hybrid meetings at Club Awesome and will be joined by others who have led successful hybrid meetings.

About the Speaker

David F. Carr, DTM, is a writer, editor, and digital consultant who has spoken at technology conferences internationally. A past president of Club Awesome, he led Online Presenters Toastmasters to charter in 2017. For the Hybrid Harmony article that appeared in the April issue of Toastmasters Magazine, he interviewed hybrid club leaders from around the world.

David also founded the WordPress for Toastmasters project (born at Club Awesome!) and operates the Toastmost.org club website hosting service.

Storytelling: a Compelling Story Makes Any Speech Better

A compelling story makes any speech better. Lorraine Campbell shows how it’s done.

About the Speaker

Lorraine Campbell currently serves as an active board member for the Customer Involved Government Committee with the City of Coral Springs. She has served on the board since 2005 and has been a member of The Youth Voting committee and chaired The Green Initiative Focus Group.

With a passion for public speaking, Lorraine joined Toastmasters over 10 years ago. During her tenure with Toastmasters, Lorraine has received numerous accolades on local and divisional levels. She has also been able to form successful mentorships, teaching Public Speaking and Leadership skills to students of all ages. Lorraine’s skills as a presenter brings a unique perspective to a variety of topics while making subject matters fun and easy to comprehend.

As a coach, Lorraine has been able to help countless people overcome the fear and anxiety associated with speaking in front of an audience. She obtained her DTM three years ago – and now has the honor and privilege of calling herself a Distinguish Toastmaster.

The Art of Giving and Receiving Feedback (Replay)

“Feedback” is so much more than that special section of our Toastmasters meetings where we receive an immediate evaluation of our speech. If only it worked like that in “real life” too!

Throughout both our personal and professional lives, we are often faced with giving, as well as receiving feedback. At work, for instance, you may be both on the giving and receiving end. It’s an important part of employee evaluations, but also of daily interactions with colleagues, employees, and supervisors.

At home, feedback is an important part of any healthy relationship – with your children, parents, spouse, siblings, and friends.

But are we doing it in the best possible way?

Come learn from our three excellent panelists how you can turn feedback giving & receiving from basic skills to an art form.

Our panelists are:

Dorrette Keen: Distinguished Toastmaster and a Certified John C. Maxwell Speaker Speaker, Trainer, and Coach. Dorrette has been empowering individuals and groups in Business and Not for Profit arenas, motivating, and inspiring them to step out of their comfort zones and go beyond, sometimes their own unrealized limits, placed on themselves. 

Andre Kelly: Distinguished Toastmaster, CEO and Founder of Public Speaking, a certified professional speaker, corporate trainer, and coach, having presented over three hundred motivational talks on platforms all across the world.

Donna Marrah: certified John Maxwell Coach, Speaker and Trainer, who works with organizations to develop leaders. She provides coaching, speaking, training and mentoring services to assist individuals in achieving personal and professional growth. 

Learn from these three exceptional speakers!

  • How to become intentional about giving valuable feedback in the workplace
  • How to position yourself to receive feedback in the workplace
  • The importance of using feedback to grow yourself and others in the workplace
  • Listen to understand, not to answer
  • Learn about the people you want to influence
  • Prepare in advance for difficult conversations.
