Toastmaster Table Topic Ideas for Impromptu Speaking – Talking From Pictures

This is a great idea. In our club, table topics are usually written topics on a piece of paper, but I thought, “Why don’t we use pictures for a change?”

So I found some pictures off the Internet, and assigned a number to each of them. I had the table topics speakers come up and pick a number, and the appropriate picture would be flashed on screen for them to talk about.

They were supposed to describe what they think is happening in the picture, or of a story that the picture reminded them of (e.g. if the picture was of a beach, they could talk about an experience they had at the beach). Of course, no captions are attached to the pictures.

An alternative to downloading the pictures is to cut pictures from newspapers or magazines.

  • Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
    I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
    God will appreciate it.
