Murdoch Open Day

Toastmasters at Murdoch University Orientation Day

What a fantastic day we had at Murdoch University Orientation day today. This is part of Robyn Lloyds High Performance Leadership programme and wow what a hit it was.

As we were setting up we realised it was a good job we had several great props and I would urge anyone else setting up like this to pay attention.

Ross Wilkinson’s Banner

The Stall


· The TM Banner. Bright and looks good BUT it blew over once too often and it kept swinging around.·

. Ross Wilkinson’s ‘pull up’ banner. At about 2 meteres this caught attention.   We would have looked dreadful without it because about half the other displays had them.  Every Division should have one to share.·

. Club Lights. This caught attention from heaps of people just out of curiosity.

· Promotional Video. We used the Cannington Communicators Promo Video on a laptop. This really made us stand out. Proably only 5 or 6 of the other 60/70 displays had these.

Robyn and I really worked the students. You don’t always get a response, but hey we were not shy in coming forward. We’ve both had experience in retail.

We ended up with 3 pages of an exercise book full of e-mail addresses full of leads. We PROMISED NO SPAM and will ensure we hit them once only unless they request a follow up. We actually signed up one person for Cannington Communicators and there are other options but that’s a tale for Robyn to tell!

We certainly exceeded expectations today.
