A good response should be structured like a speech, with a beginning, middle, and end.
Acknowledge the Topicsmaster and the audience and repeat the question at the beginning and at the end.
In the body, support your original statement by giving examples.
For the conclusion, repeat the question, repeat your statement, and briefly restate your reasons.
Responding to Table Topics
Composing A Toast
A toast is a mini speech, complete with a beginning, middle, and end.
Capture the audience’s attention and state who or what is being toasted.
Mention reasons that make the person or thing worthy of toasting. To support your attributes, feel free to include anecdotes or quotes.
Say, “I ask you to please rise.” Pause and wait for everyone. Then, say, “Please join me in a toast to…”
Creating an Introduction
Introductions make a transition by directing the audience’s attention to the speaker, establish the appropriate mood and give authority to the speaker.
Grab the audience’s attention and explains the importance of the speaker’s subject.
Cover four aspects: why the subject was chosen, why the speaker is qualified to address it, why it’s of interest to the audience, and why this time is appropriate for discussion.
Create a smooth transition by turning the audience’s attention to the speaker and their speech by saying the name of the speaker and their speech title.
