Speech #3 How to Make Banana Bread

Hey everyone!

This isn’t a post about trying new things, but I wanted to let you all know that I have my 3rd Toastmasters speech up on youtube now.   I gave it last week at Toastmasters and the week before that in my speech class.  It’s up for viewing if you’re interested!  Thanks! 🙂

  1. listening to you present, If I didn’t know better, I would swear you’ve been doing public speaking for years…just the other day, I remember thinking, I wonder if Brittany is still in the toastmasters’ group….(I guess I wasn’t sure if there was enough free time in your schedule, since you’re also a full time college student (and blogger)…later- DM

    • Thanks Doug, that is really sweet of you to say! 🙂 Yeah I’m still in Toastmasters, just haven’t been able to go as frequently as before. I definitely want to complete my manual of 10 speeches though! Thanks for your comment!

  2. You did very well, Brittany! 🙂

  3. Great job.You can also let listeners laugh.:smile:

    I’m hungry just watching! You’ve done a great job of slowing down, and you look a lot more relaxed. You always add some humor and personal stories, which I really enjoy. Great job! Oh, and I love the hat!

    • That’s exactly what my Toastmasters group said! Unfortunately after you watched my speech you didn’t get to eat banana bread like they did though. And thanks! 🙂 I really work hard on that even if others don’t see it. And yeah, I didn’t want my baking lesson to be too dry, so I tried to find ways to make it more entertaining. 🙂 It had to be an informative speech and we were recommended to do some sort of “how-to” in our speech class. Hehe thanks, I didn’t wear it in class but my mom gave it to me to wear the night of Toastmasters. I wanted to get into character.

  5. Fabulous Hat! Excellent job! May I have a slice of banana bread? I’m starving!

  6. Great stuff. I love the Grandma Ban chuckle. You have assurance and presence, Brittany…

    • Thanks Kate! 🙂 Haha yeah, I had to put in a funny baking story in somewhere. My brother Andrew also put in a tablespoon of salt before instead of a teaspoon like I was cautioning about (which let me tell you is pretty nasty), so with baking there always comes a few humorous stories. And thank you, I appreciate you saying that! I was incredibly nervous beforehand, it had been a little while since I’d been to Toastmasters.

  7. So, that what happens in there. Thanks for sharing, Brittany. Good job and nice hat. I am joining Toastmasters over here early next year. I’ve made inquiries already. I am excited and at the same time nervous. Very nervous. Agoraphobic here.

    • Thanks Addie! 🙂 Haha thanks, the hat had to be put to use sometime! Oh wow, yay!! Be sure and check out a few different groups if the first one you go to doesn’t feel right. I lucked out and found a really great club right away, but that doesn’t always happen. Good luck!! Be sure and keep me updated when you decide to get into it!

  8. I’m not a big fan of bananas….but if I were, I would try to use your recipe! Love the hat!

  9. I’m not one for public speaking, so you have my respect and admiration, young woman!

    • Thanks Hook! 🙂 It’s amazing how much practice helps though. The word “presentation” in school doesn’t make my stomach churn as much as it used to thanks to toastmasters.
