Založenie klubu „Slovenskí Toastmasters“ v Bratislave

„Slovenskí Toastmasters“ je druhým klubom tohto druhu na Slovensku. Celosvetovo existuje viac ako 12.500 klubov v 113 krajinách združujúcich viac ako 250.000 členov.

Možnosť rozvoja komunikačných zručností v slovenskom jazyku

„Toastmasters Bratislava“ bol prvým klubom na Slovensku, ktorý ponúkal svojim členom rozvoj komunikačných a vodcovských zručností, komunikácia  v ňom prebieha v angličtine.

Na základe ohlasov členova a priaznivcov Toastmasters bola vytvorená možnosť zdokonaľovať svoje komunikačné, prezentačné a vodcovské zručnosti aj v slovenskom jazyku. Preto založenie druhého klubu, tentoraz v slovenčine bolo logickým krokom.

Klub „Slovenskí Toastmasters“, sa od začiatku teší veľkej priazni členov i prichádzajúcich hostí. Obidva kluby sú súčasťou medzinárodnej organizácie Toastmasters International, ktorá od svojho skromného vzniku v roku 1924 dodnes vzrástla na viac než 12 500 klubov s približne 260 000 členmi v 113 krajinách sveta.

Členovia a hostia klubu Slovenskí Toastmasters sa stretávajú pravidelne každý párny týždeň vo štvrtok o 19:00 hod. v kaviarni Coffee&Co. na Panónskej ceste 17 v bratislavskej Petržalke, v budove City University.

Toastmastri zo Slovenska dobíjajú svet

Toastmasters Bratislava je prvým klubom tohto druhu na Slovensku. Celosvetovo existuje viac ako 12.500 klubov v 106 krajinách združujúcich viac ako 250.000 členov.

Úspešná séria víťazstiev pokračuje

Najlepšiemu európskemu Toastmasters klubu sa podaril ďalší veľký úspech. Slovenskí rečníci z Bratislavského klubu sa blysli aj v Norimbergu.
Po víťazstve v stredoeurópskej súťaži v Budapešti sa slovenskí rečníci z Bratislavského klubu vynikajúco presadili aj v európskom semifinále v Norimbergu. Katka Kovalčíková sa stala víťazkou v súťaži „pripravených prednesov“. V súťaži „hodnotenia“ sa Michal Uličný umiestnil na druhom mieste. Katka znova predvedie svoje schopnosti koncom mája  v Lisabone, kde bude bojovať s rečníkmi z klubov z celej Európy. Ak sa jej podarí zvíťaziť aj v Lisabone, otvorí sa jej cesta na celosvetové finále v New Yorku.

Rhetorik Training auf Deutsch

Ich habe versucht eine Übersetzung für den Begriff Toastmaster im Deutschen zu finden. Im LEO steht folgendes:

  • Toastmaster jemand, der bei Diners Toasts ankündigt oder ausbringt und Tischreden ansagt.

Das drückt es aber kaum aus. Ich würde einen Toastmaster als eine professionellen Redner bezeichnen. Das mag bei der Tischrede beginnen, geht aber über Meetings im professionellen Bereich und endet bei Präsentation vor tausenden von Menschen.

Möchtest Du diese Disziplin beherrschen? Möchtest Du lernen Dich vor einer Gruppe von Kollegen, Kunden oder Familienmitgliedern zu stehen, Deine Gedanken klar vermitteln können und diese Ansprachen auch zu genießen?

Die Organisation Toastmasters International (TMI) als Non-Profit Organzation hilf weltweit Menschen ihre rhetorischen Fähigkeiten zu verbessern und dazu noch Fuerungseigenschaften zu erlangen. Was TMI hier anbietet ist ein unschlagbares Rhetoriktraining das Jährlich 250.000 Menschen nützten, es ist sagenhaft wirksam und für JEDE Geldbörse verkraftbar.

Toastmasters Bratislava möchte Dir dieses Programm zum ersten Mal auf DEUTSCH vorstellen. Lass Dir diese Gelegenheit nicht entgehen!

Am Dienstag, 03.05.2011 um 18:30 im Coffee & Co im City University Gebäude, Bratislava, Panonska Ulica!
