From Andrew P Bennett DTM, President Excalibur Speakers
Our very first Wedding Speech Workshop drew forth unanimously positive comments from the General Public on Saturday 5 April 2014.
A particularly popular feature were the Ten Minute Break Out sessions. In between the model wedding speeches and presentations on ‘ How to create Your speech’ with Paul Carroll and ‘ Your Voice – from Nerves to Energy’ with Andrew Bennett, participants were able to discuss their Wedding Speech needs one to one with our Toastmasters.
The Wedding Family took to their task with great style- Richard White (Groom) Satvinder Sroopai (Bride) Jill Segal (Mother of the Bride) David Marks (Father of the Bride) Simon Cooper (Best Man) Jenny Betts (Wedding Poem Speaker).
Coaches and functionaries included Si Tate, Chinkata Okpara, George Chiesa and Karthik Venugopal.
They all deserve thanks and I very much enjoyed leading the session as the Toastmaster. Participants are now interested in our TM clubs. This kind of open doors event can put your club on the map. Try to find an idea that would work in your local community perhaps.
Above all there was much laughter and learning!
Thank you to David Marks for the photos
