Jay was our Toastmaster at the April 13 meeting. He reminded us through the evening’s theme “consistency” that we need to be consistent if we want to be good at something. He also encouraged us to push ourselves to achieve our goals by focusing on the positive things.
We heard three prepared speeches from our diverse pool of Toastmasters talent.
Luke was the first speaker who presented from “Competent Communication 2” by explaining how deal-of-the-day websites like Groupon originated and the pros and cons attached to them.
Second speaker Eric used “Persuasive Speaking 3” to demonstrate a step-by-step way to persuade his work colleagues to buy a new software.
Finally, Simon flexed his dramatic chops when he dug deep into “Interpretive Reading 4” to present to us three different characters from the play “The Chocolate Affair”.
Table Topics Master Cleaver tied the theme of “consistency” to Table Topics quite well. Each speaker was given a pro or con quote about consistency and provided us with their interpretation of the quote. Winner Julian wowed us with his entertaining perspective of Jim Dale’s quote “Good acting is consistency of performance”.
Overall the meeting was really energized. Congratulations to Grammarian Lily’s word of the day, “haste”, which was mentioned a record 19 times! Future meeting Grammarians the gauntlet has been thrown down!
Until next time!
