VTM CON, the unofficial conference for undistricted online Toastmasters clubs, will feature a webinar contest you don’t want to miss. One central challenge for contestants will be to create audience engagement within the constraints of the online format.
Although this is the first inter-club contest, here are excerpts from winning webinar presentations in past contests at Online Presenters, which pioneered this contest format.
RSVP Now! to see how contestants from seven undistricted online Toastmasters clubs demonstrate their mastery of online engagement at VTM CON, June 26-27, 2021.
Complete contest rules are at here. The webinar contest is not an official Toastmasters International contest (at least, not yet) but aims to test skills specific to speaking and presenting online.
While audience engagement is an important component of every good speech, achieving it online can be particularly challenging — which is why we speakers are awarded points if they can get feedback through Zoom chat or in some other way (like asking people to give a thumbs up if they agree with a statement). Contestants can get as creative as they would like, and the judges will figure out whose method was most effective.
The contest scoring also includes traditional metrics for Toastmasters speeches, such as speech development and vocal variety.
You’ve got an idea, and want to bring people along to support you or buy your product and service. You feel the need to tell them all about it, so they understand your proposition – and yet, they have no time to hear the details, and want a short pitch. How do you manage the time pressure? What should you tell, and what should you leave out? How do you get them to take the next step?
