Its contest season and TM Olivia from Charlotte reminds us this through a brilliant Ah Counter Script. Olivia has used the examples of past ISC winners to show why the role of Ah Counter is important. Read her submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Ah Counter?
Have you seen the videos of acclaimed ISC winners Aaron Beverly and Ramona J. Smith? In case you haven’t, I request you to do so today. Apart from great storytelling and stage presence, there is one more factor that helps them clinch the coveted title – absence of filler words. Filler words like Ah, umm, err, you know etc. compromise your fluency and dilute the impact of your message. In Toastmasters therefore, we have a dedicated Ah Counter to help you overcome this.
As the Ah Counter today, my role is to keep a track of all the filler words used by the speakers today in their speeches. I will make a note of them and present my report towards the end of the meeting so that one day you may also one day win the ISC and make our club proud.
Thank you so much TM Olivia for this submission.
