Our meeting on Monday April 24th was filled with Firsts.
Our first new member, Erik, delivered the Ice Breaker. This is the first speech members give at Toastmasters. Erik took us along on a journey with his entertaining and insightful personal stories.
We let our guests try their skills at impromptu speaking in Table Topics. The Table Topics were also filled with Firsts. We learned about the sad fate of Bianca’s first mobile phone; Azeem’s excitement on his first bike; and how Vera enjoyed her first paycheck.
In contrast to the firsts, were were also treated to a speech delivered by one of the most experienced Toastmasters in the area, Morag. She has probably done over 70 manual speeches. Her project was from the advanced manual, “Speaking on Video”. We watched as she recorded a training video on how to create a speech. Basically we were all learning from Morag as she was learning from doing this project.
At the end of the meeting we filled all the roles for the next meeting on May 8th. You can find the next meeting’s agenda here and see what you have to look forward to.
