7 Deadly Sins of Speaking, Ted Talks

I've been learning a lot through my recent membership in Toastmasters International. I am really excited to be a new member even though my professional career days are now pretty much behind me. I figure it's never to late to learn to be a better communicator. I ran across this video in the online magazine today and found the 9 minutes spent were worth GOLD! Anyone who speaks to clients should make this a must listen!

 

You do not need to be a member of Toastmasters International to read the online magazine HERE is a link, check it out today.

If you live in the greater Minot ND area I hope you too will consider joining Toastmasters 636 along with me. We meet every Tuesday at the Grand Hotel at 6:00 PM. Just show up!

Hello Bob, I had a great time in college taking a speech class and then joining toastmaster for a year.  I need to practice.

Bob "RealMan" Timm I loved Toastmasters.  One of my degrees was in Communications so of course Toastmasters was on the table very early on. You're going to have a BLAST!!!  And Ted Talks are great!

Ted Talks is a great resource, Bob. Happy to hear you are enjoying your Toastmasters experience.

Glad you liked it James Dray and if I was still a Broker I'd see that my agents got a link as well.

Thanks Nina Hollander . Toastmasters is helping to build my confidence (so I don't mess up when I propose to you ).

Bob "RealMan" Timm good morning, Bob... I can certainly count on you to put a smile on my face!

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Realty) about 1 year ago

Bob "RealMan" Timm - I was a Member of Toastmasters, including a Charter Member in Flower Mound for about 20 years and an Officer serving many terms and different Clubs. It is a great organization and people are very supportive in helping others to achieve their goals. I need to get back to Toastmasters. It's truly an organization where people can improve communication and serve their community well.

I'm really enjoying my membership Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP and tomorrow I will give my first speech (icebreaker).

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) about 1 year ago

Bob "RealMan" Timm - You're going to do great giving your icebreaker. Mainly because nobody knows you better than you, so no one can disagree or argue! I wish I could be a fly on the wall. I'm already cheering for you!

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) about 1 year ago

Thank you Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP but I decided I wanted my icebreaker to be about my son. I've been practicing for several weeks.

Excellent talk and the words blame thrower are etched into my mind.

Joe Pryor I'm glad that you also got something out of it. It sure was helpful to me.
