A Toastmaster End of Year

Seth Godin passed along a really terrific idea for end of year gift-giving in his post the other day: give three books that challenge you to three people who influence how you do your work. You wind up giving nine books to three people and you end up with “many conversations and forward leaps.” Godin says that when he’s given books before “It changed our conversations for years.”

It’s a great idea that really doesn’t need to be tweaked, but how about trying a Toastmasters-centric variation? Pick out videos of three speeches that have the potential to improve your speaking ability, management of your club, or your life in general. Share them with three colleagues who impact your life or your club. Use them as the starting point for your conversations.
