3 June: Meeting Review

Posted by LP User on Wednesday, June 26, 2013 Under: Meetings
Our June meeting was a bumper one with 5 speeches, brilliant table topics and fantastic evaluations.

With Theo away Jeremy stepped in as acting president and Carey Fenn as Toastmaster was exceptional - her preparation for the role was flawless and she kept us effortlessly on track.

The speeches of the night were no different. Clinton McKenzie wowed us with his 'Road Less Travelled' CC1. Reto 'Woke' us up with his rivetting CC2 story of surviving a fire and Jeremy tuned us into our caveman instincts with his to the point CC3 on the Paleo Diet.  Claire finished her CC journey with an outstanding CC10 - Happiness Is, that had us all inspired to bring more happiness into our lives and Alana then took flight with an inspiring story about 'Wrong Way' Kerrigan.

In the business section of the meeting Marion asked members to vote for Toastmaster of the Year after reading out the nominations for Francois, Lorne, Aaron, Jeremy, Alana, Theo & Verity. The new committee was also voted in by all present and there was a wonderful sense of support and excitement in the air for the year ahead.

From the many guests present two filled in membership applications right away and two more have expressed interest in joining! Watch your inbox for the voting survey to give them the nod :)   Once again we finished the meeting feeling inspired and connected - something that the guests at the meeting commented on as motivating them for wanting to join. This is completely due to each and every member and the energy and enthusiam you bring to our club. Thank you!
