Do you know what happens when you speak impromptu? You tend to make mistakes, which not so co incidentally also happens to be today’s theme. But isn’t that correct? You may misunderstand the subject; you may get tongue tide or just turn blank. Thankfully, there is a silver lining to every mistake. You can rectify them. This can also be rectified through one simple trick – practice. In toastmasters, we give you ample opportunity to do so in our table topic session. In this session, anyone can volunteer to speak for 1 to 2 minutes on a simple topic given by me. Let’s begin. Who would like to volunteer?

  1. In a world with no police, court and jail, what mistakes would you like to commit?
  2. In the whole Ross-Rachel “we were on a break” saga, whose mistake was it according to you?
  3. If you had a dollar for every mistake you made, how rich would you be now?
  4. What’s worse – ignorance or mistake?
  5. How do you handle an employee who commits a mistake?
  6. Have you ever committed the same mistake twice?
  7. What are God’s three biggest mistakes?
  8. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being high, how high are your husband’s mistakes?
  9. If a trained circus lion attacks the ringmaster, whose mistake is it – the lion’s or ringmaster’s?
