Meeting Summary #187 – Let’s Go Back To School
Hi Leaders and Public Speakers,
Here’s the summary of yesterday’s amazing meeting at Diamante Plaza. We had a full house today, with 3 speeches and many fun moments :)
The word of the day was “dilligent“, which means having or showing care and conscientiousness in one’s work or duties.
Alicja was the Toastmaster of our meeting and after the introduction called our TTM on stage, Ewelina, who presented the warm-up question: “If you were told you had to go back to school tomorrow, what would be your first reaction?”. Everyone was able to answer the question and introduce themselves in 30 seconds.
Then we started the prepared speeches section.
The first speaker was Piotr with his speech “Maracanazo“, evaluated by Kamila,where he shared the story of the biggest upset in football history. The speech was Piotr’s Project #6 – Vocal Variety.
The second speaker was Ewelina with her speech “If it makes you happy“, evaluated by Ricardo, a very funny, original and entertaining speech. The speech was Ewelina’s Project #2 – Organize Your Speech.
The third prepared speaker was Tomek with his speech “Happy wife is happy life“, evaluated by Ricardo, a very inspiring speech that portrays the reality of marriage. The speech was Tomek’s Project #10 – Inspire Your Audience, and Tomek has officially earned the title of “Competent Communicator” by completing all the projects from the first Toastmasters speech manual. At the end of the meeting, our President (Przemysław) and our Vice-President of Education (Ewelina) prepared and delivered an award to Tomek.
The Table Topic Session followed, with 4 brave contestants taking part in it, and Ewelina leading the session. Each participant had to choose randomly a subject in school (e.g. History, Physical Education, Music, etc.) and then between 1 to 2 minutes deliver an inspiring and motivating talk to the audience (the students) to prompt them to be interested in the subject. You can imagine how hilarious this was! :)
Shout out to our amazing guests Boško and Waldek for joining in on the fun and even taking part in the Table Topic Session!
The winner of this Table Topic Session was Gabor.
Finally, Gabor presented the timer report, Ricardo gave us grammar suggestions, Boško informed us of all the unnecessary sounds we made during the last hour and Przemysław evaluated the whole meeting.
