19 Nov: Early Bird Meeting Review

Posted by VPPR on Wednesday, November 21, 2012 Under: Meetings
This past Monday morning saw 6 members gather at The Winsor Restaurant for the monthly Early Bird Express Meeting. We also had two visitors join us - Penny from the Pro Biz group that Kay Price-Lindsay spoke to last month and Nick who is one of our returning members Debby Satchel's son!  Nick dove straight in and did a wonderful job as timekeeper, while Marion took the honours as Toastmaster of the day. 

Debby Satchel gave an informative CC2 on the secrets of networking that was the perfect start to the week! Claire Strohbach then enthralled us with her CC5 on being handed the wrong baby in the nursing ward on day one of being a new mum! Finally Mike Fawcette took us on a journey through history with his Storytelling AC5 on Winchester Cathedral and how it was underpinned by one man in an epic 6 year effort to stop the cathedral from subsiding. It was a fascinating!

After another lovely start to a Monday morning our meeting came to close with Mike Fawcett winning Best Speech, Verity Price winning Best Evaluator and with our stand in timekeeper Nick Satchel requesting a membership form!  All in all another successful Early Bird Express meeting and definitely a strong indication that the morning meeting will be going from strength to strength in 2013!
