(To be read the Toastmaster of the Day to set the tone of a simulated event.)

It’s a special day as the local Toastmasters club has invited new guests. The guests are new to Toastmasters and would like to observe a Toastmasters meeting.

The interested guests were treated over dinner. The speaker reflects on how it feels like to be a newcomer and how it is to be delivering the Icebreaker speech and the first few speeches in the Basic Toastmasters manual.
