Last week was my busiest week of speaking. I was Toastmaster at my Friday morning club, Toastmaster at the PREP Speaks presentation during the PNC PREP NOW Conference, and presented my longest talk, almost 50 minutes, at the Toastmasters District 13 Fall Conference. This week I only have plans to speak once on Friday at my noon PNC PREP Speaks Toastmasters club.
I need to see how many speeches are on the schedule for Friday because I was thinking about completing the first project in the Professional Speaker manual, the Keynote Speech. The time alottment is 15 to 20 minutes with the goal to inspire and motivate.
If there are two other speeches than I won’t have enough time to complete that speech. Then I’ll try to complete the fourth speech from the Humously Speaking manual, Keep Them Laughing, which only needs to be 6 to 8 minutes. This speeches goal is to tell a speech but tell jokes throughout the speech.
