Meeting Summary #193 – Hot Topics
Hi Leaders and Public Speakers,
Here’s the summary of this week’s amazing meeting at Krakow’s public library WBP w Krakowie. We had a full house, with 2 speeches and many fun moments :)
The word of the day was “to be in/out of the loop“, which means included in or excluded from a group of people who receive the latest information about something.
Kamila was the Toastmaster of our meeting and after the introduction called our TTM on stage, Przemysław, who presented the warm-up question: “What do you do to be in the loop?”. Everyone was able to answer the question and introduce themselves in 30 seconds.
Then we started the prepared speeches section.
The first speaker was Gosia with her speech “Foreign Languages“, evaluated by Marlena, a very interesting speech where she shared her wisdom of learning foreign languages. The speech was Gosia’s Project #2 – Organize Your Speech.
The second prepared speaker was Kamil with his speech “The Magic in Words“, evaluated by Ricardo, a very inspiring speech that raises the question “What if our thoughts are more powerful than we think?” The speech was Kamil’s Project #6 – Vocal Variety.
The Table Topic Session followed, with 4 brave contestants taking part in it, and Przemysław leading the session. Each participant had to share their opinion (between 1 to 2 minutes) on current topics like the “Black March”, the “CETA agreement” and Donald Trump’s campaign. The winner of this Table Topic Session was Ricardo.
Finally, Alicja presented the timer report, Gábor gave us grammar suggestions, Ilona informed us of all the unnecessary sounds we made during the last hour and Ewelina evaluated the whole meeting.
