After a long holiday of gluttonous indulgence, shameless consumerism, and joyful celebrations, the cold hard reality of January finally hits: you have a few extra pounds to lose, the credit card bills are mounting, and zero holidays or festivities to look forward to in the near future.
It is a difficult time for all of us. We need a ray of light to blast through the winter gloom. The theme for tomorrow’s meeting, hosted by our Toastmaster, Bing, is “Blasting through the Winter Blues.” Everyone is encouraged to come to the meeting prepared with a suggestion / tip on a small piece of paper to share with everyone else on how you survived the winter gloom. All the suggestions will be read throughout the meeting.
It will also be an exciting time for many of our new members. Julian, along with our newest member, Keith, will be giving their Ice Breaker speeches. Vivienne will Get to the Point with her third speech, “Give yourself a competitive edge: How to market yourself as a brand.” Finally, Arvind will strive to use body language to enhance his fifth speech. In addition to the prepared speeches, we also have several votes that will be held – members, do your best to attend.
See you there!
