What does it take to be a leader?
Toastmaster James gave us his take on leadership, using his nephew as an example of how effective leaders can help others grow.
Maria introduced us to the memorable leaders from her past in her Icebreaker speech, while guest speaker Mohamed shared the story of the other Mr. Bean — who wasn’t a very good leader at all. Ending on the right note, Karoline gave her first speech by management: a kick-off briefing for new hires. And hey, free Starbucks!
Congrats to Maria and Arash, who were inducted as our newest members, and Arash and Mark, who led the way during our Table Topics session and shared first prize.
