How many potatoes can you juggle?
In his first Toastmaster’s speech, Luke gave us some personal insight and wisdom about what its like working in a large manufacturing and engineering corporation. Who knew a children’s game like “hot potato” would relate so well to a feeling Luke finds at work. Well done Luke.
We had a great night of firsts, with two of our new members giving their Ice-Breaker speeches!
First, Stanley began by telling us how he stepped out of his shell in University, when he got some random adrenaline and became his debate team captain! And who knew, eventually leading their team to become debate champions and earning himself the best debater award!
Next we had a wonderfully personal and touching account from Olga. She spoke about her distaste for education growing up in Eastern Europe. And her personal saga culminated in getting a degree in honours by the time her tale was over.
Mark also lead our Table Topics portion of the evening, resulting in a 4 way tie for the win. With one last vote, our winner was our guest Roger!
