My next “appearance” will be on talk radio, KUIK 1360 AM, “The Voice of Washington County.”
This interview will not be about my books, however. We will be speaking about speaking. More precisely, I will be telling people about an upcoming workshop on humor.
That workshop will be hosted by Daylighters, a local Toastmasters International club, on 8/27/2014, 6:40 – 8:00 a.m., St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 12405 SW Butner Rd, Beaverton, OR.
Refreshments will be provided, and the entire thing is FREE!
Three award winning speakers will be sharing tips and techniques. They will talk about resources for humor, what to do and what not to do in order to make humor work.
And I am sure they will share some of their own experiences, contest and otherwise.
Why should you care, especially if you are an author? As a writer, you will be “out there,” promoting and marketing your work (assuming you want it to sell at all.)
Toastmasters International is a GREAT way to improve your public speaking skills. Incorporating humor effectively will help the audience relate to you, and remember
what you say. Daylighters has been around for more than 30 years. Their membership includes those that have been around almost since Daylighters launched, people
new to Toastmasters, and a host of others, with a variety of levels of expertise.
