UFC – The Ultimate Fighting Championship – is a sport that has spread like wildfire and become one of the hottest sensations among males and females alike. People are buzzing about it. They’re taking mixed martial arts because of it. They’re paying big bucks to watch it. They’ve lobbied the province to legalize it (and won). But what can we, as Toastmasters, really learn from the sport?
Join us for our Liberty Village Toastmasters meeting this Wednesday, Mar. 2 at the Harbourfront Community Centre as our Toastmaster, Bing, attempts to knock us out with her theme for the evening: “Ultimate Fighting Championship – Lessons for Toastmasters”.
Mar. 2 will be a special joint meeting with another local Toastmasters club, The Go-Getters. As a result, we’ll be treated to prepared speeches by a member from each of our clubs: Eddie from the Go-Getters and LVTM’s very own Frank. We’ll also be having a very rare “debate-style” Table Topics session, in which participants will go toe-to-toe in the Table Topics ring to argue in favour of a particular point-of-view. It’s going to be one heck of a fight night – don’t miss it!
(**Please note that in order to accommodate the members from both of our clubs, this meeting will be held in the large Assembly Room located just past the main office, and not in our usual meeting room).
See you there!
