Looking at Language
Phrases to avoid on stage
As you're practicing for your next speech (or still polishing your area contest speech), take a look at this Toastmasters Communication article penned by seven time district speech champion John Zimmer (District 109). Take a few minutes to read John's thoughts on language you can use to build a connection with (or quickly disconnect with) your audience.

Here are the past Toastmasters Toolbox articles that we've highlighted:
