Toastmasters

Attended my second toastmasters meeting at the PJ Hilton yesterday evening.

I spoke for 1 minute 16 seconds during the table-topic session. It wasn't the best thing I could speak off the cuff, but I haven't been taking opportunities to do so.

Things learnt: I was more conscious of speaking the right things than in engaging the audience.

Points to improve: Stand more engagingly in the centre of the room. And tell better jokes.

I know I can speak. It's just building up confidence in doing it and not being self-conscious.
