- Prepare table topics theme and/or questions. Have easy ones ready for guests ‘Tell us about your favourite holiday’, ‘tell us about your home town’ etc. Try to have enough questions so you won’t run out – 15 is a good number.
- Have a look over the agenda to think about what members to bring up (try to get members without other speaking roles for the night, so that all or most members get up to speak). You don’t need to ask members if they want to participate, just guests.
- Prepare a wee 1-2 minute introduction of TT, explaining its purpose, how it will work, and why it’s good to learn impromptu speaking. Also explain the timing of 1, 1.5, 2 minutes, and that its fine if guests don’t speak for the full time.
