Our latest meeting – speaking about the Dalai Lama and the Queen

Our last meeting:

Our last meeting was led by Shaun Curry as our Toastmaster for the evening with a theme of books and reading. How fascinating to learn what our fellow members are reading right now. Lauren stepped in as Time Keeper….. Thank you Lauren! Caroline  our Grammarian introduced the word ‘ephemeral’ and so many speakers used this word in their speeches it was a pleasure to see. Krish acted in his permanent role of  Sergeant at Arms.

We also had three amazing speeches:

  • McVal kicked off with his 1s speech/ Icebreaker entitled ‘Why am I here?’ and was evaluated by Muthukrishnan (Krish)
  • Elzbieta on her second speech  kept the audience at the edge of their seats telling us about Conspiracy Theories, which was evaluated by Rakesh.
  • For our third speech entitled ‘I belong here’ delivered by the actual divisional winner in the International Speech Competition on the road to the finals in Vancouver! Ola Aralepo demonstrated how impactful public speaking really could be.

Table Topics:

Our Table Tops master this evening was none other than Mr Table Topic himself David.
He steered about 7 speakers to create one story and a crazy story at that….. The location Tibet with the Dalai Lama meeting the Queen for drinks in a bar……

Fascinating, purely fascinating ……….

Thien Trang gave commendations and recommendations to all the table topic speakers and within time…
