Our Gary is an exemplar of a Toastmaster. With all our speakers unable to participate due to all kinds of legitimate reasons, Gary pulled together a great evening of fun and learning, exemplifying the very qualities we aspire to master at Toastmasters. Awesome.
Another exemplary Toastmaster was Dave B, our Grammarian for the night who did a fine job introducing the word of the day ‘Exemplary’ and listening to our use of grammar. Better still, we congratulated Dave B on completing his Competent Leader manual tonight with this Grammarian role. Excellent work Dave!
In a clever twist, Gary put together a panel for the audience to fire questions at about Toastmasters. Ellie & Tim were in the hot seats, fielding questions about appropriateness of speech topics, emotional speeches and how mentoring works in our club.
Tabletopics was lead by David K with a superb suite of topics, this time between 2 & 10 minutes on the theme of “The first time that I …”. Jan talked about her first baby, and Ben his first fish. Jane took the audience through her first marathon and David shaved his head. Then Ade was milking a goat, on a box with bluetack and – well enough said really – you truly had to be there!
Thank you all for a great evening!
