Summer is ending and kids are going back to school! We had another wonderful meeting at the beautiful Fort York Library.
Our meeting began with our Toastmaster Wes giving a great speech on the importance of building powerful conclusions. This is timely advice as we begin competitions in two weeks.
Louise was our 1st Speaker and gave a speech called “How Do I Get There From Here?” where she talked about the TTC and accessibility on transportation, which requires a lot of planning! We learned many things from her perspective on accessibility and using the TTC.
Next, Catarina gave a speech on “Secrets to Happiness and Success I Learned Working on a Ranch”. She shared life experience gained from working with irrigation lines on the ranch, and focused on the importance of having purpose and gratitude as keys of happiness.
Domien was our Table Topics Master this evening, and had a variety of “easy”, “medium”, and “hard” topics that made for an interesting (and challenging) selection of improvised speeches.
Amanda won our Table Topics competition, by talking about the importance of customer service while ordering her favourite almond latte from Starbucks (which according to her is NOT a girly drink).
Looking forward to next week’s edition of Toastmasters on Sept. 13th, where we will be back at Harbourfront Neighbourhood Center.
If anyone is interested in competing (or volunteering) with competitions on Sept. 20th, we have a few spots left! You may contact our president (Wes Vick) to register.
