Toastmasters

Join us for an incredible opportunity to enhance and grow your Communication and Leadership skills in a supportive encouraging learning environment with Toastmasters at Gold Coast TechSpace!

As a business owner speaking skills are a must have. Toastmasters will give you the skills and confidence you need to effectively express yourself in any situation. By learning to effectively formulate and convey your ideas, you open a world of possibilities. You will be more persuasive and confident whether speaking with your colleagues, your community or your family.

Leadership is the art of understanding the needs of others and guiding them to achieve common goals. To do so, you need to communicate effectively and inspire people to work as a team. Toastmasters can help you do both. Learn leadership theories and put them into practice with the GC Hub club so that you can, in turn, apply them to everyday situations.

Done Day
20220526
8:30 am

What is it?
DONE is a facilitated day of work sprints spent 100% focussed on getting your priorities done with zero distractions. All you need to do is bring your enthusiasm and your to-do list, and then we will keep you motivated and focussed on getting it done. If you know the acronyms, it’s all about GSD by JFDI.

Why participate?
You are probably very busy, possibly even getting a lot done, but yet you may be left feeling like you never get time for the most important things. Or maybe you’ve got a backlog of small unfinished. Or maybe you have a big piece of project work that really needs an entire day of focussed work. Or maybe you just want to do some planning and develop a strategy. Or maybe you need time for writing or content creation, or finalising that grant application, or catching up on book work.

How it works:
Each participant brings their own “To Do” list for the day and works through them in a series of short, focussed sprints.

Our facilitator does all the time keeping and keeps you accountable to your tasks for the day.

The morning starts at 08:30 with an optional training session where we share with participants some productivity techniques and tools as well as giving you time to work on your to-do lists for the day.

Then at 09:00 we commence the actual focussed work sprints. You can take all these learnings back into your everyday work practices to improve your normal levels of productivity.

As well as working individually, you have the option to use the power of the group to have short sessions for some brainstorming and co-creation with fellow participants.

It’s a great way to gain some fresh perspectives, new ideas, and new connections.

Done Day is the brainchild of the amazing people at Tribe Global
