For the first time ever, Boston Speech Party has achieved President’s Distinguished status in the Toastmasters Distinguished Club Program which is the highest level. This accomplishment is in large part due to the extraordinary effort of a number of members who worked very hard to complete their goals. This was particularly notable due to the additional challenges of moving the meetings online and at the same time continuing to keep up with all the objectives.
Congratulations to the following award winners:
Triple Crown (Competent Communicator, Competent Leader and Advanced Leader Bronze awards): Mike Kelley and Alexander Becerra Competent Communicator and Competent Leader awards: Kim Cable Presentation Mastery Levels 1 and 2 awards (Pathways): Brock Treworgy Competent Leader award: Kevin Martin
Congrats again to all the award recipients and to Boston Speech Party!
Due to the ongoing Corona virus outbreak, we have moved our meetings to an online format effective March 25, 2020. Guests are always welcome, so please contact our VP of Education, Kevin Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org for meeting login details. We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates once we are able to resume meetings in person.
Due to the ongoing Corona virus outbreak, Fisher College has cancelled all external meetings so we will not have our meeting scheduled for March 11, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and post updates as we have additional information.
If you’re like many people, the new year is a great opportunity to set new goals, get motivated and take action. Make improving your public speaking one of your resolutions. If you aren’t a member of Toastmasters, come to a meeting and see what it’s all about. If you are a member, challenge yourself to work on a new speech or participate in a meeting with another role.
Tips for Reaching your New Year’s Goals:
1. Write it down! Seeing it in writing will make it more tangible and not remain in your head.
2. Create steps to reach your goal. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
3. Stay positive. Don’t be discouraged if you’re not progressing as quickly as you would like. Just keep going.
4. Make yourself accountable. Ask a friend or pair up with someone in Toastmasters to keep you focused and check in on your progress.
Boston Speech Party’s very own Alexander Becerra won both the International Speech and Table Topics contests at the Toastmasters Area 85 Speech Contest! While this was not Alexander’s first placement in a speech contest, he continues to dedicate his time and energy towards improving his storytelling and public speaking. We look forward to seeing even more of Alexander’s speeches at our regular meetings.
This event was held on March 15 2018 at the O’Keefe Auditorium at Mass General.
If you’re like many people the new year is a great opportunity to set new goals, get motivated, and take action. Why not make public speaking one of your resolutions? If you aren’t a member of Toastmaster International, challenge yourself to come to a club meeting and see what it’s all about. If you are a member, maybe it’s time to work on that new speech or learn something new about another member.
Tips for Reaching those New Years Goals:
Write it down! Don’t let those goals stay trapped in your head
Create steps to reach your goal. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time
Stay positive. Don’t let a lack of progress keep you discouraged
Make yourself accountable. Ask a friend to be your accountability partner and have them check in on your progress
