We are Speaking Elephants – Toastmasters Club from Warsaw

Our club’s mission is people. Our organization’s founder, Dr. Ralph Smedley, once said, ‘Ours is the only organization I know that is dedicated to the individual’.

We strongly believe in those words and work together to bring out the best in each of us. Speaking Elephants is a place that provides its members with the opportunity to grow and learn.

We simply get more speaking done before 8:30 than most people do all day. This is what our Elephants expect, this is why they stay and bring friends. The numbers follow the people, as it should be. Our club provides an encouraging environment so that those who are not accustom to speaking can feel at ease. With portions of the meeting like table topics, the meetings are often fun and filled with excitement. Joining us you can grow both professionally and personally.

You are around individuals who want to improve their communication skills and more importantly want you to improve your communication skills as well. One of the things people notice about our club is how different not only the speeches are, but how different and varied the background and ages of the participants is.

Enjoy some of our Club members’ speeches from the comfort of your own home! What makes our club one of the premier public speaking groups in Poland is the quality and diversity of the topics of the speeches that you will hear. Another aspect of the Speaking Elephants Video Resources is the fact that our speeches are usually followed by evaluations. By actively listening, providing reinforcement for the speakers’ strengths and gently offering useful advice, we, as a Toastmasters Club, motivate members to work hard and improve. By giving feedback, we are contributing to our fellow Club members’ improvement. Preparing and presenting evaluations is also an opportunity to practice listening, critical thinking, feedback and motivation skills.

Then the meeting headed on to the crucial part of speeches where our first speaker Jarek Czepiela
Broke the ice perfectly with his inspiring insightful speech, which was continued by Aleksander Sikorski who told us how to organise a party in a orderly way.
Our third speaker was Chris who said how to live happily in simple 3 steps and the speeches were later evaluated by our respective evaluators who were Jack bond, Jarek & Sudharman

Nobody fell asleep at our last meeting at Speaking Elephats. It appeared that talking about sleeping is quite refreshing, especially if it is lead and moderated by such experienced Toastmaster as Tomasz Porzcynski. We had three prepared speeches - Kim Daizy Jiyoung revealed her passion to travelling. Our Special guest from Bytgoszcz - Mario Augusto Bento da Silva - shared three touching stories with one main point - think twice before giving advices. And finally Sebastian Pasternacki brought us to the world of IT security. As usually the second part of the meeting was the most exciting and thrilling. This time on top of Table Topics contest run by Jugita Maciunaite we had something unusual during evaluation session. Our another special guest from Bytgoszcz - Marta Korsak - brought general evaluation to a new level. She was passionate, witty, concise and energetic. So much vigour and so many interesting advices! Thanks a lot! At the very end of the evening we have got a very sad news that Jurgita should leave our club as she is coming back to her home town Vilnus. However, the good news is that Jurgita apeared to be a professional guide. Everybody is invited to have an interesting tour around the city when you are in Vilnus.

Thanks to everybody for a very refreshing evening and looking forward to seeing you next Tue.

We were happy as a clam talking about happiness at Speaking Elephants. Big kudos for Maja Szczucinska for choosing the topic and to every participant of the event. There were also two interesting ice-breakers from Wojciech Cichy and Dariusz Bąk and a Table Topics contest prepared by Paweł Zugaj. The winner of the contest was Maria Parysz with her two minute definition of happiness.

See you all next Tue. We will have two special guests from another club. Don't miss it!
