Article scope easy-Speak information
How do I book a speech for a future meeting?
Log in to easy-Speak and either:
Click on Request a Speech in the left-side navigation or on the View_agenda screen.
Access your Personal Speech Progress screen. (Menubar > My Participation > View my Speech Progress )
Access your User Profile (Click on 'Profile' at the top of the screen)
While you are there, take a quick look to make sure that your other personal data is up-to-date with the correct telephone numbers etc.
The next section shows speeches that you have requested and the date that the Vice President of Education for that club has scheduled for you to make the speech.
Entering a speech is easy - you need to show:
The workbook and assignment are selected from a pull-down of published Toastmaster manuals.
The first time that you schedule a speech, the system will ask you which workbook you are using at the moment. From then on it will continue to offer you assignments from that workbook.
If you are using more than one workbook, the system will present you with the choice when you request a new speech (until your VP-E marks one of the workbooks as 'completed').
If you wish to change any details of your speech you may do so by returning to this screen and clicking on the speech title.
The information that you enter for your speech is shown automatically in the agenda for the meeting.
If you wish to delete a speech from the queue, you may do this by clicking on the blue X at the far right of the screen. Please note that you cannot delete a speech which has been scheduled for a club meeting unless you first 'refuse' the speaking role.
If you have membership of more than one club using easy-Speak you will be asked if you want to specify the club for a new speech. If you select 'Any club' this speech will be available to be scheduled by the VP-E of all clubs where you have 'speaking rights'.
You may have several speech requests active at any time.
If you have your VP-E's approval for presentation of a speech outside a Toastmasters meeting you may book the details of the speech using this screen and then ask your VP-E to confirm that the assignment has been completed.
There is a video on requesting a speech available here:
