Taking on this role improves organization skills, time management and facilitation skills.
The TopicsMaster delivers the Table Topics® portion of the meeting, which helps train members to quickly organize and express their thoughts in an impromptu setting.
As TopicsMaster, you:
Select topics in advance of the meeting that allow speakers to offer opinions.
Give members who aren’t assigned a speaking role the opportunity to speak during the meeting by assigning impromptu talks on non-specialized themes or topics.
Don’t ask two people the same thing unless you specify that it is to generate opposing viewpoints.
In clubs presenting a Best Table Topics speaker award, ask members to vote for the best Table Topics speaker (at SOS we currently do not do this).
