Questions for Table Topics

Toastmaster clubs use Table Topics to get people to think on their feet.

Table topics questions help members improve:

  • Communication skills in impromptu settings
  • How to quickly organize and express thoughts
  • Convey messages within a specific time frame - 1 to 2 1/2 minutes max.
  • Become more at ease answering on-the-spot variety of open ended questions


My Table Topics

These are a few examples of Table Topic questions I've worked up to challenge members of clubs of which I am a member.

Feel free to use and share with your own clubs.

I have many more to add yet so come on back now, ya hear?  :-)

I had a bit of fun and sprinkled repetitive group of descriptive threes (highlighted in yellow) throughout all sections.
