Project #1, The Ice Breaker

May 28, 2008 at 08:35 7 comments

Walah … today i have to give speech in front of 15 people something … This is my 1st project in this club which i have to passed before i join this club formally.

Talking in front of people is not my 1st time, for sure. But somehow, prepare and presenting something in front of people, always makes me nervous. Especially in the preparation time.

Since this is still project #1, what i have to present is something very easy … actually, this is just an opportunity to give me first prepared talk and break the ice 🙂  Usually people tell something about their life, background, interest and sometimes they just sharing about simple story that inspired them in life. I feel that i dun have any interesting story that i can bring to my first project, nothing special about me, so i try to create something about ‘My Name’. I wrote down why i dun like my single name, bla bla bla …

Then last nite, when i did the trial by presenting this in front of Daniel & Etha, they gave me so many new idea … I also feel that Name topic not make me interest at all … Based on Etha’s idea, I change the topic to Miz Kuiz topic … hmm, this one is more interesting and make me more ‘live’

After the presentation, i got someone to evaluate my speech. Since this is my 1st project, he’s very appreciate and say that i am not eligible to start this project from #1, … i used to start from project #8!! Okay, i received it as a compliment … 

Today presentation was not as scary as i thought, but still need practice to make perfect. Felix, my evaluator says too that my strength point is that i have a confident to speak in front of the audience. These are his resulf for my 1st speech :

  • What strong points does the speaker already have?
    Comments : Relax
  • How well did the audience get to know the speaker?
    Comments : Very well, enthusiasm, pay attention to the speaker
  • Did the speech reflect adequate preparation?
    Comments : Yup, the speech run smoothly although several … (not finished yet)
  • Did the speaker talk clearly and audibly?
    Comments : Clearly audibly
  • Did the speech have a definite opening, body and conclusion?
    Comments : Indeed, opening by introducing herself, body about the quiz …
  • Please comment on the speaker’s use of note
    Comments : She did but not too much. Looks like she noted only contains the headline, which is effective
  • What could the speaker have done differently that would have improved the speech?
    Move your leg to make some movement in position. Put some tone to emphasize your favorite story / point
  • What did you like about the presentation?
    Comments : the quiz, Wow, that much?? Woww!!

For BM #1, you’re more than it. You deserve for the next project. Can’t wait for it  🙂

Thanks for the evaluation Toastmaster Felix  🙂  –> he just elected as the new president of the club  🙂

And counting for ah = 10 (eeemmm, aaannnd, eeeee, etc) –> i try to avoid this, for sure

For inappropriate word : 0 (great!!)

Thanks God for today’s presentation 🙂
