SGIPodcast site for SG Online English Toastmasters Club members

A podcast website service had set up to help members of SG Online English Toastmasters Club who wishes to learn how to set up a podcast.

What you will get to learn.

  • Learn how to setup podcast
  • Learn how to record the podcast
  • What content will attract listeners to hear from you?
  • What equipment to have.
  • Coaching service
  • A radio-talk show (coming soon).

We can conduct online workshop talks to enrich Toastmasters so that they can set up a podcast on their PC/mobile device.

Most important is you can login using your Gmail to listen to free content once it is available.

I had registered SGIPODCAST.INFO, and the website (https://www.sgipodcast.info) is currently set up in the progress

There are already three external parties who are interested in providing the contents.

SGIPodcast will serve another educational platform for a member of the SG Online English Toastmasters Club to improve their public speaking skills.

We will let you know when the website is fully operational.

What is an Introduction?

What do you think of when you’re told to write in introduction? Well, there are at least 2 kinds of introductions in Toastmasters.

First, is the type of introduction that you give when you first meet someone. It gives a brief synopsis of who you are, your personal background and maybe some outstanding accomplishments. For instance – I come from a small farming community, my family traveled a lot when I was growing up, I have a PhD in chemistry . . .

The other type of introduction is the one that should be prepared to give to the Toastmaster of the Day to help introduce the speech that you are about to deliver. It can save one to two minutes of your speaking time if you let the Toastmaster give you a proper introduction. For instance – If you are going to read a historic poem or speech, it would be beneficial to know who originally wrote or prepared the text, a description of the timeframe and location that is in the theme of the presentation. These things help the audience understand your basic material before you start speaking. Yes, you could do all of this yourself, but it will cut into your speaking time.

Think of this as what usually occurs on a television show that occurs weekly. Its a bridge. Sometimes they will describe what happened during the last week or episode. Then they can launch into the new show because they have connected you to the last show.

So when you sign up for your speech, please provide the second type of introduction. We usually know who you are and it gets boring hearing about all of the letters of the alphabet behind your name.
