Always an exciting meeting … we were a small but very fun group of intrepid Toastmasters members!
- Majeda Haidar as Chairperson describing the vision of Beyond Words. She actually went through our entire website and read the blog posts for her research … now THAT is how to prepare for a role!
- Two great presentations followed by in-depth evaluations:
- Bonnie Mak gave a workshop, “The Toastmasters Education Program,” from The Better Club Series … very informative for all with lots of Q&A. Did you know that the present educational system will be changing soon?
- Juan Manuel Gonzales Galindo presented his heart-warming contest speech “Follow Your Heart with 3 Ps”
- Super fun THINK FAST! Session led by Bonnie and her “Hot Potato”. The game played is called “Storytelling Circle” and involved everyone in the room. The group was asked to shout out an object, place, and action to set up each story. It’s amazing what happens when we throw a ball around … we are so in the moment having fun that our creativity catches on fire!
- Juan won “Most Enthusiastic”!
- We were having so much fun that we totally forgot to take a group shot … next time!
