Ga Lok, stepping in for Paul opened the meeting and talked about being featured in the meeting again! (though we’ve also been mentioned in this week’s London Speaker)
Leigh as Toastmaster welcomed everyone and gave a humorous introduction to public speaking.
Marcelo was our timekeeper; reminding us the importance of time.
Dimos our Grammarian, with his word of the day “Jocular”.
Ga Lok was our Table Topics Master, using failed Guinness Book of Records as the basis for impromptu speaking for our members and guests.
Leanne was our Topics Evaluator; giving encouragement and feedback to all 10 table topics.
Felicitas; introduced our new guests for the evening.
We had 3 great speeches tonight (their speech evaluators in brackets):
- Jack – His icebreaker: The Past, Present and Future Me (Dami)
- Charlotte – Time to Talk (Rachel)
- Ana – The Island of Knights (Christine)
It was a lively and action packed meeting; congratulations to Jack for delivering his Icebreaker speech and winning best speech, Leanne winning best evaluator and Will who won best table topic (the record breaking saying “Are we there yet?” the most number of times in the back of a Toyota)
Next meeting Tues 16th Feb, see you all there.
