#134: Meera Manek — Speechwriting, Communication and Stand-Up Comedy

March 28, 2018Categories: Public Speaking, Communication, Humor

The Toastmasters Podcast with Bo Bennett, Ryan Levesque, and Greg Gazin
The Toastmasters Podcast is like a radio talkshow featuring interviews with Toastmasters usually featured in the Toastmaster magazine. But unlike a radio show, a podcast is on the Internet, and available, for free, to anyone in the world with an Internet connection, and a connected device capable of playing audio.

23:39] Meera Manek is a Kenyan-born, of Indian descent, speechwriting coach, meeting facilitator, trainer, realtor and stand-up comedian who moved to California from Nairobi at age 7 and joined Toastmasters at age 18. Manek is featured in the Q & A section of the March 2018 issue of the Toastmaster.

In this episode, Manek joins Greg and Ryan to discuss how being a Toastmaster made her better at her craft, and how she approaches her work like a doctor.

Manek also shares how stand-up comedy taught her about vulnerability, why we shouldn’t apologize and how bombing on stage reinforced the importance of making sure to get other people’s name right.
