Today I played the role of a TableTopics Master in Wipro BEATS Toastmasters club. It was a part of my project in pathways Level 3 project. The objective of the project being "Active Listening". Its one of the electives. I am planning to finish all the electives in this project, for the experience of it.
I started by saying that your mind is a blackbox. The TableTopics session helps to get amazing things out of it by throwing in some random topics.
Theme: Having a theme is really important for a TT session. I used the theme of famous dialogues from Movies. I had the following dialogues:
- Its not who I am, but what I do, that defines me
- Why so Serious
- Jaa Simran Jaa, Jee le apni Zindagi (to which, the speaker responded, I don't know who is Simran and where she is going !?)
- We are in captivity of negativity, prisoners of our own minds
- You are the product of your past, not a prisoner of it
- Dread it, Run From it, but destiny still arrives
- With great power, comes great responsibility
The response from the audience was amazing. I urge any member of Toastmasters, if you are taking a TTM role, please try and do something different!
Make an impact with every topic that you offer.
