Greenway Plaza Toastmasters Virtual Meeting on Zoom
Thursday, March 26, 2020 | 12:00 pmFree
Greenway Plaza Toastmasters is hosting a virtual, online edition of its weekly Thursday noon programming.
Live in-person Toastmasters meetings involve one to three members giving a
scheduled five to seven-minute speech on their topic of choice. Audience members then write short evaluations of the speech and forward them confidentially and anonymously to the speaker using paper ballots.
Speeches are followed by a round table where members are called on to speak extemporaneously on surprise topics. Attendees then vote for the best speech and table topic using secret paper ballots.
For the virtual meeting, the group will be using Google Forms. Due to the nature of the online application, one person besides the speaker will be able to view the feedback, but otherwise votes and comments will be anonymous.
