One Year since our Launch Meeting

Happy Anniversary Bamberg Toastmasters

I can’t believe that it’s already one year since Bamberg Toastmasters appeared on the scene. We had our very first meeting at the end of March upstairs in Ahörnla (we have since moved to a quieter spot, find out where).

Time to take stock

One year has passed– I guess it’s time to take stock and have a look at were we are now.

Some speakers have been with us right from the start. It is very impressive to look at their individual public speaking journeys, to think about how they started out and where they are now. All of them have become more confident, they have learnt how to craft and deliver compelling speeches, and how to give constructive feedback – they now know what counts in public speaking and how to approach a challenge.

As you may have read before, we’ve had two winners at the recent “Franconian Competition” our Area Conference. They outshone other contestants from altogether 5 participating clubs. This is some achievement indeed. I think Bamberg Toastmasters can be really proud.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for our contestants Neel and Christina. This Saturday is the “All Bavarian Open”, i.e. the Division Conference in Munich and they will particpate at the next level. At our next meeting, we may have to open a bottle of bubbly to celebrate their success.
