Here is Zandria‘s description of our last meeting (Julie was at Las Vegas TMI convention)
“What a really wonderful meeting, great fun and all completed ahead of time.
Michael presented his Icebreaker, excellent work. You are on your way to achieving another one of your personal goals. Stephen in his 2nd speech, shared with us his recent exciting trip to Ghana. Both definitely on their way to becoming confident speakers.
With a night with so many guests prepared to speak at Tabletopics and many for the first time And a special congratulations to our guest Beverley her first tabletopics, and you won the Tabletopics competition, such a natural. Well done.
A special thank you to Richard, our very competent Toastmaster of the evening. Done with panache and much style. Super.
My time as Sargeant at Arms was short, but very very sweet. I would like to wish Eric very good luck in the new role. I look forward to you making it your very own, as only you can.”
Chris, added to the description:
“… and there was also a very powerful, thought provoking and emotion packed speech from Zandria.
Zandria held us in suspense and anticipation at what was going to happen next. A personal story of her experience working at a magazine some years ago. A speech which touched all of us, and for which she very deservedly was voted best speaker of the evening! “
We had problems with finishing in time, for a while now, and the team of Richard as Toastmaster of the Evening and Chris as Timekeeper and Katy standing for President, proved that one can finish in time! We hope to learn and follow it up, so time is left at the end for those wanting to discuss more, and those who have to go home faster to do so also. We have the space from 7 to 10 pm but the Meeting is from 7 30 to 9 30 and this time, it was finished by then! Wonderful.
Making meetings go smoothly is a team effort and it proved again team working together – works.
