Need ideas?

Open your eyes.

They're around you - everywhere.

I joined Toastmasters a number of years ago and one of the challenges I faced was being given a "Table topic". This is a random subject that I had to talk about for a given length of time.

I struggled to come up with stories until I started noticing things around me. Funny situations, newspaper clippings, things the kids did, my last game of golf, etc...

I would find ways of building these stories into my table topics & it worked well.

Now I think of Table Topics as my gym for the brain - keeping me on my game!
