Joan's Gems

Things That Joan Lewis
(our own Distinguished Davie Toastmaster)
Taught Us

  • Never say, "I'd like to" ...just DO it!
  • Never turn your notes over. Slide the sheets out of the way.
  • It's not a podium, it's a lectern.
  • Never apologize for a mistake.
  • Don't ask someone, "How are you?" Instead say, "It's nice to see you!"
  • Make your gestures purposeful.
  • Never thank the audience at the end of a speech. They should thank you!
  • In the Pledge of Allegiance, there is no comma between "One nation" and "under God".
