Courage was the title of Christina’s Ice Breaker speech at our meeting on June 26th.  She reminded me that courage is an essential ingredient for personal growth.

Christina inspired me with her speech where she talked about having the courage to journey across Chile on horseback. It turned out to be a life-changing experience.  After hearing her story I thought she shouldn’t be afraid of anything now. But she acknowledged that she had to call on her courage to stand in front our club to talk about herself in her first speech.

Marc, a guest from Nuremberg Toastmasters gave a speech on Communicating Change from the manual “Speeches By Management”. Marc challenged himself this year to complete 10 speeches and to compete in 2 speech contest at the district level. When you challenge yourself you can’t be afraid of failure. He had the courage to challenge himself and he succeeded!

On that evening Malda, Vera, Theresia and  Neel also joined Bamberg Toastmasters. Welcome everyone and congratulations on taking this courageous step.

Come visit us at our next meeting. Guests are always welcome.
