Club Meeting 13 August 2018
Many thanks to our immediate past President Leslie who gave the introduction on Toastmasters and told us a little about its history.
Alice was our Toastmaster for the evening, whose job is to describe the meeting and introduce speakers throughout the session.
At Cass Toastmasters the evening is split into two parts. The first part consists of our Tabletopics session. This gives volunteers the opportunity to practice their impromptu speaking by responding to a question given by the Toastmaster. The Toastmaster for this evening was Avani who presented the volunteers with some interesting questions around tonight’s theme of leadership. Those taking part in the table topics session speak for up to two minutes.
The second part of the evening is for the planned speeches. This evening we had 4 inspiring and informative speeches delivered by our members. Congratulations to Lisa for completing her icebreaker speech. All speeches are then evaluated, where all speakers are given feedback.
Thank you to Paulina for being our general evaluator. This role is a challenging one as they are responsible for evaluating the President, Grammarian, Toastmaster and Evaluators.
Great as always to see so many guests.
