Skwim Toastmasters Club starts guest speaker series

The Skwim Toastmasters Club launches a monthly Second-Tuesday Guest Speaker Series next week.

Guest speaker presentations will average 45 minutes in length, followed by the Toastmaster tradition of Table Topics: 1-2 minute impromptu speaking practice in which the audience can participate if they choose. The series takes place where the Sequim club already meets on the first and third Tuesdays of the month: 137 Fairway Drive, known as “The Gathering Place,” at Sunland Golf & Country Club, 109 Hilltop Dr. Admission is free.

“We’re creating a free, open-to- the-public, regular event to inspire and educate not only our members, but the public at large,” Lindy MacLaine, the club’s Vice President of Education, said.

Guests are encouraged to arrive a little ahead of the 7 p.m. start time, MacLaine said.

“We plan to showcase top Toastmaster speakers in our vicinity with a wide range of topics chosen for their broad public appeal,” she said. “We already have an exciting line-up.”

From 7-8:15 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, the inaugural speaker is Distinguished Sequim Toastmaster Kyle Hall, presenting “Job Hunting: The Mental Game.”

Based on his own job-hunting experience and his corporate years in sales, Hall will discuss internal techniques for surviving and thriving during the modern employment-seeking process.

“Searching for a job is hard work,” Hall says, “Over time, it can crush even the most confident person’s self esteem. I’m offering practical tools to change that result.”

Skwim Toastmasters is part of Toastmasters International, a worldwide nonprofit educational organization that “empowers individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.” Guests are welcome.
