Jenny Kessell

Toast Masters Geraldton

Guest Speaker Jenny Kessell from Geraldton Toastmasters. She attended Geraldton High School and did a degree in teaching at Curtin University. These days she is the Academic Coordinator at the Geraldton University Centre. She thanks us for the scholarship we provide.

She described how she became involved in Toastmasters and that just like Rotary. Toastmasters' clubs can be widely different. Geraldton Toastmasters was set up late last year and is currently rebuilding after being closed down for a while by Covid19.

JKspeaks of the Rotary and Toastmasters alliance and lets us know there are eleven pathways in Toastmasters. Eight of them are specific to Rotary. There are online modules which can be done. The combined Rotary Toastmasters ambition is to..."Make More Lives Better."

Pres Phil with Jenny & Greg

JK describes how a typical Toastmasters meeting works with themes, impromptu speaking and prepared speeches. Sometimes Question and Answer sessions are conducted. Everyone gets a mentor and everyone taking part in the meeting is evaluated depending on his/her role. The idea is to leave the meeting with something positive while also learning how to take criticism and how to respond to it.

Confidence is key!

Toastmasters is held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday nights of the month at the Geraldton University Centre. Meetings start at 6.30pm and finish at 8.00pm.
