I LOVE Toastmasters…and that’s not just because I gave an “award winning” humorous speech for Toastmasters a few years ago.

In short, Toastmasters Clubs develop Public Speaking and Leadership Skills.

I’m getting more involved with Toastmasters this year and to kick off 2017, so I’m excited to announce one of Get a Klu’s favorite clients, Chef Works Inc., has agreed to partner with us to launch a new Toastmasters Club. You can read more about Toastmasters below or by visiting their website.

chefworks-logoThis blog becomes outdated on January 9th as we’ll be hosting our first “mock meeting” where you can learn more about Toastmasters, how a club works overall, how specific meetings are run, what you can get out of it and, of course, how you can contribute to the Club’s success!

toastmasters-logoWHEN: January 9th 2017 at 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Chef Works Corporation Headquarters is located at 12325 Kerran Street • Poway, CA 92064

WHY: First of all, Toastmasters International is a world leader in communication and leadership development. Members of Toastmasters improve their speaking and leadership skills by regularly giving speeches, gaining feedback, leading teams and guiding others to achieve their goals in a supportive atmosphere. The results are greater self-confidence, personal growth and deepened relationships with fellow club members.

Every meeting of a Toastmasters Club features several different forms of Public Speaking (impromptu and prepared speeches, oral evaluations, functionary reports and more!) and also provides several “leadership” opportunities due to the roles/functionaries that are required to run each meeting.

Secondly, Jeff Klubeck is an International Speaking Trainer and Coach who brings 20 years of experience teaching Public Speaking to the Club. His passion, experience and expertise when it comes to Public Speaking Coaching/Training is an incredible “value add” to the host of benefits Toastmasters offers its members.toastmasters on the big stage

Finally, GREAT networking with fellow friends/clients of Get A Klu as well as the SUPER Chef Works employees who take advantage of this wonderful benefit being provided for them.

Again, we will explain ALL of this to you when you attend the Information Session (“mock meeting”) on Monday January 9th at 11:30 am PST. Make sure to let me know if you can make it. Also feel free to share this event with your friends and colleauges.

If you can’t wait to get the Toastmasters info, feel free to contact Jeff Klubeck directly (jeff@getaklu.net or 619-405-3356) if you have any questions!

Award Winning “Holidays” Humorous Speech!

Award Winning “Holidays” Humorous Speech!

During the month of December, I start thinking a lot about my relationship with God. ?I mean, I?m a Jewish guy who married a Filipino Catholic and, along with her and all 3 of our kids, celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas. Celebrating both Holidays allows us to teach our kids important lessons from each religion, at the same time, the kids learn how to develop their own relationship with God.

Klubeck family holidays goofy and silly

Being the goofy guy that I am, I actually created a humorous speech about this topic a couple years ago for Toastmasters! I delivered the speech for my local Club and?believe it or not I won…then at the contest for Area 19 I won again…ultimately, I finished 2nd at the District level, but I got to deliver this very fun speech on three separate occasions, winning 1st place twice.

I figured that the Holidays are the perfect time for me to share this award winning speech with you again, and since I?m constantly pushing the importance of public speaking, I better make sure I?m demonstrating my own ability to speak! I was lucky to have one of the audience members film it so I can now share.

As you watch my speech, keep in mind, this is intended to be a humorous speech. It?s not supposed to offend anyone. I do think you will find the 3 stories I share amusing. You can watch my speech here, and perhaps it will spark you to start thinking more closely about your own relationship with God:

I personally have come to the conclusion that everyone has their own relationship with God. Even if you don?t believe in God, or don?t feel like you have a relationship with God; that in itself IS a relationship with God.

Ultimately, I want to say, don?t let anyone mess with your relationship with God, and don?t mess with anyone else?s relationship with God. ?However you do it, have a happy and safe Holiday Season!
