Happy New Year Cathedral City!!


Tonight our first meeting was kicked off with Diane as the toastmaster, a fantastic turn out and a packed line up of speakers!


Our first speaker was Carl with his speech titled “Happy New Year!!” all about his new years resolutions following his SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, timely) goal setting scheme.

Eva was up next with Dynamic Leadership Communication Styles, which is in what way we as people communicate with each other. The styles are based upon personality traits and communication skills. They range from: Analytical, Intuitive, Functional, Personal.

Ellie was our third speaker with Consumer Protection and how we can use the consumer’s guarantees act to our advantage when making high involvement consumer decisions.

Ryan was last but not least with a researched timeline of Theodor Seuss Geisel AKA Dr Seuss’ life. “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”

Fernando gave the club his Toastmaster’s Promise and Craig gave us a bard from a selected piece of literature.

Fiona bought along a New Year themed table topics that focused on what people we’re aiming for going into 2019. Tim said 2018 was his year of YES! and this coming year will be the year of NO! (for his kids, which is pretty cool). Gary told us about how he has come to the realisation that he has conformed to the norm of men’s fashion and is in the works of redesigning his LOOK for 2019! We’re excited for him to bust out the florals soon enough! Mike spoke about how his wife hates him working so he’s working on not working by stepping towards the fully retired stage of retirement!

A big thanks to our evaluators; Richard, Dave, Matt, Jane, JP, Nick and Kahu!


See you all again next week!!
