Welcome to Toastmasters Southern Africa http://www.toastmasters74.org Sat, 07 Mar 2015 01:39:38 +0000 Joomla! - Open Source Content Management en-gb Toastmasters use the Educational Series to train the community http://www.toastmasters74.org/922-public-relations/news/281-toastmasters-use-the-educational-series-to-train-the-community http://www.toastmasters74.org/922-public-relations/news/281-toastmasters-use-the-educational-series-to-train-the-community

Lynn Southby, Area Governor for Area S5, and Beth Thomas DTM, PID, PDG working with Rotary Club of Three Rivers in the Vaal Triangle used the “Improve your management skills” and “Effective Listening skills” programmes from the Success Leadership Series to train a group of 27 Ward Coordinators on 23rd January. These are volunteers working in the community with Rotary. Rainbow Nation Toastmasters Club and Rotary Club of Three Rivers will work together again on Human Rights day  (21st March) to do a “Speaker’s Corner” event when people can get on their “soap boxes” and speak about issues needing attention in our area and giving ideas on how to solve the problems.

Rainbow Nation Toastmasters Club partnered with Rotary Club of Three Rivers for a PR Awareness day and led an annual Bilingual contest to celebrate our diversity with over 60 people attended.

Clearly Rainbow Nation Toastmasters Club not only serve their members and make a difference in their community. Well done to the club and to Daniel Masukela the club VPE for these events.

Evaluate to Motivate Workshop, November 2014 – A Report http://www.toastmasters74.org/922-public-relations/news/279-evaluate-to-motivate-workshop-november-2014-a-report http://www.toastmasters74.org/922-public-relations/news/279-evaluate-to-motivate-workshop-november-2014-a-report

In November 2014, Paul Jensen and Tim Knights facilitated an informative, interactive workshop held at the Modderfontein Toastmasters Club.

During the theory sessions, Tim focused on the “why” of giving effective feedback and emphasized that every evaluation should benefit the speaker, encourage continuing speaking and build and maintain self-esteem. Paul expedited the group practical session, focusing on the “how” and allowed participants to apply the theory. Evaluations were assessed and participants were advised of areas of improvements.

If you want to improve your speaking and leadership skills, you must learn how to give and receive helpful evaluations. The more effective we are in evaluating each other, the more each of us profit from the experience.

It is highly recommended that every aspiring leader attend the next workshop!
