Workshop information: Business Club Frankfurt Toastmasters in cooperation with our partner, Rhea Wessel, is proud to offer our Toastmaster members and non-members the opportunity to participate in a workshop entitled “How to use a journalist’s toolkit to present yourself as an authority in your field”
Many people have great ideas but lack the ability to express them effectively as a written story.
With a little practice and the journalistic touch, you can turn your ideas into or articles that simplify the complex, debunk myths or showcase your opinion.
In this workshop, we’ll explore the fundamentals of story in a business setting and what makes a good story good. We’ll also brainstorm story ideas, learn about techniques in the journalist’s toolkit, and you will begin a first draft of an article you want to write.
Participants will walk away with techniques for finding interesting stories and writing them in journalistic style.These include finding new and fresh story angles, simplifying the complex, and presenting your ideas with good story structure and a conversational tone.
Please bring a pen and paper/ laptop for the writing segment. You can also bring partly written materials on a USB stick for Rhea to evaluate.
Note: Before the workshop, please give some thought to which ideas you would like to be known for inside your organization and with the public. The area in which you become an authority is based on your talents, interests an contribution you want to make.

Workshop information: Business Club Frankfurt Toastmasters, in cooperation with our partner Sarah Blake, is proud to offer our Toastmaster members and non-members the opportunity to participate in a workshop entitled “Voice Training”.
The voice is a powerful channel of self expression – the ultimate tool for projecting enhanced communication, confidence and presence. A strong, clear voice can fill an auditorium, impress a senior manager, convince a client…and make any listener hang on your every word. Yet, sometimes, we lack the confidence to speak or we feel inhibited from using our voices fully.
Through a series of techniques and training, Sarah will teach you how to
- find and develop your individual sound with confidence and clarity
- support your voice through correct breathing and posture
- project your voice and command a room with authority
- articulate precisely, so you can always be heard
- deal with nerves when speaking in public
- protect your voice and keep it healthy
Where and When: “the curious room” in Darmstadt on Saturday, November 17, 2018
Available sessions: Morning session, where the focus is voice training- 09:30 to 13:00 or afternoon session, where the focus is on performance elements using voice – 14:30 to 18:00

Workshop information: Lego® Serious Play® meets Leadership
Business Club Frankfurt Toastmasters, in cooperation with our partner Agnes Wigend (Multisensing) , is proud to offer our Toastmaster members and non-members the opportunity to participate in a “Lego® Serious Play® meets Leadership ” workshop.
“Don’t look with your eyes, look with your feet. Don’t think with your head, think with your hands” *Taiichi Ohno, father of the Toyota Production System.
When it comes to thinking (e.g. brain storming, strategy meetings,…) we mainly use our conscious mind. Did you know this represents only 5% of our cognitive activity (decisions, emotions, actions, behavior)? Indeed, 95% of our thinking power is located in our subconscious. Therefore, bypassing our conscious mind to unlock our subconscious potential is key to an increased thinking power.
While Taiichi Ohno* was already on that track in the 50s (“think with your hands”), the play company LEGO® developed a methodology in 2010 to increase their own internal strategy meetings: Lego® Serious Play®. This methodology is all about breaking the 20/80 meeting dynamics by creating meetings where everyone is leaning in and contributing, while breaking habitual thinking.
Give your mind a hand!
In this workshop you will get the chance to experience the Lego® Serious Play® methodology to brain-storm about the meaning of Leadership today/tomorrow.
Where and When: Saturday 27th Jan 2018 at Saalbau Griesheim (google maps) will consist of max. 12 participants per group with a duration of 4 hours
