Waste Not, Want Not — September 16 Meeting Recap

Have you ever bought something you later regretted?

In this first meeting of the fall season, Toastmaster Mark encouraged us to “Waste Not, Want Not” by giving us three good tips on how to prevent buying what you don’t need. Guest Nikita from District 86 stepped in as Grammarian, providing a word related to the theme (reusable), before Maxim inspired us to make our dreams reality by outlining three steps for each of our goals: plan it, time it, and pay for it.

Next, Andrew entertained us with his interpretation of a scene from Death of a Salesman, while Guest Speaker Preet presented a thorough comparison of big companies (IBM and RBC) and start ups (Uber). Finally, Des led a diverse set of one-word Table Topics, with topics ranging from diamonds to computers to imagination. Mark came away as the big winner with his speech against smoking.

Next week, our Area Governor will be visiting us (and giving a guest speech). Come out and join us!
