Meeting Summary #182 – Surprise

Meeting Summary #182 – Surprise

Hi Leaders and Public Speakers,

Here’s the summary of today’s amazing meeting. We had a full house today, with 3 speeches and many fun moments :)

The word of the day was “tog“, which means to dress especially in fine clothing.

Ricardo was the Toastmaster of our meeting and after the introduction called our TTM on stage, Kamila, who presented the warm-up question: “What’s something that surprises you?” Everyone was able to answer the question and introduce themselves in 30 seconds.

The first speaker was Sabine with her speech “Balance“, evaluated by Ewelina. This speech was Sabine’s Project #3: “Get To The Point”. A fantastic speech full of amazing advice!

The second speaker was Kamila with her speech “You and Your Inner Child“, evaluated by Przemysław. This speech was Kamila’s Project #4: “How To Say It”. It was a speech that awoke many emotions and with unforgettable stories!

The third and last speaker was Przemysław with his speech “Distinguished Club Program“, evaluated by Ricardo. This speech was part of the Successful Club Series. It was a very technical speech delivered masterfully!

 

The Table Topic Session followed, with 5 brave contestants taking part in it. This was probably the most original Table Topic ever!

The winner was Justyna. Congratulations Justyna!

Finally, Paweł presented the timer report, Justyna gave us grammar suggestions, Marlena informed us of all the unnecessary sounds we made during the last hour and Justyna evaluated the whole meeting.

The pictures and videos of the meeting will soon be available in our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TMKrakow and also in our website.

The next meeting will be on 24th of August and the Toastmaster is not appointed yet, so what are you waiting for? :)
