21 Feb: Advanced Meeting Review

Posted by LP User on Friday, March 1, 2013 Under: Meetings
On Thursday 21st February we hosted our first ever Advanced meeting. It was well attended with 10 members and 7 guests in total and gave a wonderful opportunity for advanced speakers to take the stage. Aaron Blanchard did an outstanding job of organising the meeting and then pulling off a brilliant first time Toastmaster role! Mike Fawcett entertained us with a humourous sales pitch presentation, Theo Potgieter showed us how to 'Eat An Elephant' when attempting to become a Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM) and Alana Byrne gave an insightful and useful presentation on how to use Easy Speak.

All in all it was a great meeting and hopefully these Advanced meetings will go from strength to strength.

Advanced Winners:
Speech: Alana Byrne
