Meeting Summary #197 – A Matter of Taste
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 3 speeches and many fun moments :)
The word of the day was “finicky“, which means excessively particular or fastidious, and difficult to please.
Marlena was the Toastmaster of our meeting and after the introduction called our TTM on stage, Justyna, who presented the warm-up question: “What can AI bring to humans?”. Everyone was able to answer the question and introduce themselves in 30 seconds.
Then we started the prepared speeches section.
The first speaker was Wojtek with his first speech ever on Toastmasters “How I got here“, evaluated by Przemysław, a speech where he describes his journey to Toastmasters. The speech was Wojtek’s Project #1 – The Ice Breaker.
The second prepared speaker was Leidy with her speech “If you are what you eat“, evaluated by Ricardo, a very personal and informative speech about her food choices, and her journey to eating healthy. The speech was Leidy’s Project #2 – Organize Your Speech.
The third and last prepared speaker was Gosia with her speech “Follow your dreams“, evaluated by Gábor, a motivational and inspiring speech about not giving up and going after your desires. The speech was Gosia’s Project #3 – Get to the point.
The Table Topic Session followed, with 5 brave contestants taking part in it, and Justyna leading the session. It was absolutely hilarious! The winner of this Table Topic Session was Gábor.
Finally, Andrzej presented the timer report (great first report!), Michał gave us grammar suggestions (amazing for the first time too), Paweł informed us of all the unnecessary sounds we made during the last hour and Ewelina evaluated the whole meeting.
