ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Dec. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Now that the holiday season is in full swing, it’s the time of year when you may be asked (or take it upon yourself) to give a toast in front of friends, family, and colleagues. Whether you’re the type of person who looks forward to saying a few words at the upcoming holiday party, or you cringe at the very thought of being asked to do so, it’s important that you’re ready if called upon.
To help you prepare, Toastmasters International, the global organization devoted to public speaking, communication, and leadership skills development, gives these five tips for making a meaningful and memorable holiday toast.
“Toasting gives people the opportunity to reflect on the past and to inspire the audience with their optimism for the future,” says Margaret Page, Toastmasters 2021-22 International President. “Given what we have collectively experienced since the beginning of the pandemic, celebrating through the ritual of toasting is definitely one tool to move the fulcrum toward a more positive emotional state.”
