Club Meeting – 20 August 2018
A slightly quieter evening than usual, with some of our members on holiday, however this did not mean that there was not an exciting evening of speeches taking place throughout the evening.
The first part of the evening involved an extended table topic session. Alice, our table topics master for the evening presented both members and willing guests with some highly thought provoking questions. Well done to our guest Ajay who won the best table topic award.
After a break the group enjoyed two interesting and inspiring speeches by members Stas and Ian.
Thanks to Dale who was our general evaluator for the evening. Evaluating is an important part of Toastmasters. Everyone who speaks during the evening is provided with useful feedback on their public speaking. The evaluator also gets a chance to practice their public speaking through giving the evaluation. The general evaluator is often an experienced member from another club who provides feedback for the President, Toastmaster, Grammarian and Evaluators. Well done to Beryl who won best evaluator award.
Every meeting has a theme; today’s was: Moments of Truth
Word of the day: VIM. Meaning energy or enthusiasm.
Club President Moez informed the group that our Humorous speech contest will take place on 24 September 2018. Spaces are available for contestants and judges.
Due to a forthcoming bank holiday the next session will take place on: 10 September 2018. Please go to https://www.meetup.com/CASSToastmasters/events/253960397 for further details.
