The word of the day was “show off“, which means “to behave in a way that is intended to attract attention or admiration, and that other people often find annoying”.
Gábor was the Toastmaster of our meeting and after the introduction called our TTM on stage, Andrzej, who presented the warm-up question: “Brag about something!”. Everyone was able to answer the question and introduce themselves in 30 seconds.
Then we started the prepared speeches section.
The first prepared speaker was Asia with her ice breaker speech “Milky soup“, evaluated by Marlena, a very funny speech about a childhood memory from the kindergarten.
The second prepared speaker was Ewelina with her third speech “Smart New Years Goals“, evaluated by Przemek, a very informative speech about a how to set SMART new year goals.
The third prepared speaker was Gosia with her fifth speech “The journey so far…“, evaluated by Alicja, a great speech about Gosia’s journey with Toastmasters and life in general. This team proved to be a winning one as Gosia got to be the best speaker on this meeting and Alicja the best evaluator.
The Table Topic Session followed, with 4 impromptu contestants taking part in it, and Ricardo leading the session. The winner of this Table Topic Session was Gábor.
Finally, Yury presented the timer report, Ricardo gave us grammar suggestions, Benedicte informed us of all the unnecessary sounds we made during the last hour and Michal evaluated the whole meeting.
Next week’s meeting is already under planning and we have already 3 speeches confirmed!
