Business Cards For Your Club
Create club business cards using official printing guidelines indicating your meeting time and place, and distribute them to friends and colleagues along with a personal comment on how Toastmasters training has benefited you.
Use templates to print your cards, and give them to all members. Present a speech on how to use this card. Help your members to become aware of opportunities to introduce themselves and share their successes in different situations. Help them to design and practice their elevator speeches (theme for Tabletopics). Remind members to listen first, find the ways to connect with the person, and then to share their story.
Always have cards with you!
