Meeting of Wednesday, 13 September 2017
Venue: Het Goudblommeke In Papier / La Fleur en Papier Doré
Pre-meeting dinner starting 18:00
In the coming Toastmasters year, our monthly Artful Orators meetings remain the must-attend events in Brussels, if you are looking for in-depth feedback on your advanced Toastmasters speech projects, if you want to expand your knowledge on public speaking and if you want to develop your skills through artful exploration and experimentation.
We’d like to introduce a new metaphor for our meetings: “the orchestra”. Each of us is a player with an individual voice and a role to play within the context of the whole piece of work that is the meeting. That’s why Toastmasters of the Evening and Table Topic Masters should think of themselves as orchestra conductors. They are responsible for bringing out an overall melody, meaning or feeling, as well as the best in each player’s voice. Join our orchestra to find your voice!
Patrice will deliver the very first “flip-flop” speech at Artful Orators, also on the subject of money. Patrice will develop both sides of an argument and flip-flop to the other side at the command of a magic bell rung by an audience member.
Zsuzsi will make us laugh and that allways brings us closer to ourselves! What better music than laughter?
Sydney’s AO Special will focus on the development of our sense of self as speakers and human beings. Developing this is synonymous with developing voice. What can our relationship to money tell us about ourselves and how can that knowledge help us grow our voice? A parallel will be drawn between books, music and money: wherever the immaterial brings forth the material, emotional reactions can be triggered. The best speakers have voices that touch the audience members emotionally and intellectually. Sydney will show us how we can increasingly connect to ourselves and our voices, and how we can find the way to connect beter to our audience members. We may even hear the presenter present in different voices, maybe even a musical one!
