When I joined Toastmasters, the role of Ah Counter absolutely dumbfounded me. “Why this fixation on a few meaningless utterances?” I often wondered. However, it was only upon watching the record of my ice breaker that I realized how these meaningless utterances marred the beauty of a fine speech.

So today, as the Ah Counter, I will help you undergo a similar realization. I will keep a track of all filler words such as ah, um, you know, basically etc. that speakers use during their speech. I will present my findings when called upon by the General Evaluator in the third session.
