We do impromptu speaking or simple conversation every day.
Research shows that individuals who can express themselves efficiently advance faster in their careers than those who have difficulty in speaking. Toastmasters provides the tools you can use to improve your performance in a variety of situations.
A typical Toastmasters meeting includes a Table Topics Section. This is the time to practise impromptu speaking, thinking on your feet without preparation.
Check out the below videos created by Darren LaCroix that explain what impromptu speaking is. Darren is the 2001 World Champion of Public Speaking.
Impromptu speaking gives you the experience of thinking and being in the moment. What we’re doing is treating ourselves for when you’re in front of a boardroom, in front of your boss or customers, or even at regular company meetings. Or whatever is important to you to speak your mind at the moment.
How To Improve Your Impromptu Speaking?
The whole purpose of impromptu speaking is to be able to speak your voice in the moment; what do you really think.
Check out the below video that explains how you can improve impromptu speaking.
