7 November - Meeting Review

Posted by LP User on Thursday, November 15, 2012 Under: Meetings
This months meeting saw a wonderful turnout. With 13 guests including: former member Cecily Froud, a Toastmaster from Berlin and two teenagers wanting to see what Toastmasters is all about.  It made for a brilliant evening where  the club treated to fantastic speeches by Claire Strohbach (cc4), Verity Price (cc9) and an educational on effective evaluations by Marion Thomas. Lorne Sulcas ran a dynamic Table Topics section in our new longer slot to help members improve their impromptu speaking.  We also had second time visitor Reto fill out his membership form which means that when we register him in December the club will have earned another Distinguished Club Point for signing up 4 new members since July!  Reto is going to be a fantastic addition to the club so we are excited to welcome him on board.

Marion in her role as Area Governer handed over three ribbons for our banner - President Distinguished Club for 2011-2012, Home to Area Governer and a Treasurers Ribbon for 2011. Mike Fawcett gave an insightful and useful general evaluation of the meeting which is always helpful so that we can continue to offer quality meetings to our members and guest.

All in all it was another wonderful gathering where members continue to grow, flourish and learn! Best Speaker went to Claire Strobach, Best Evaluator to Francois Roux, Best Table Topics to Reto and Best Leadership to Lorne Sulcas (Table Topics Master)
