Meeting Summary #194 – 2016 Presidential Elections in the USA
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 “controversy“, which means prolonged public disagreement or heated discussion.
Gabor was the Toastmaster of our meeting and after the introduction called our TTM on stage, Marlena, who presented the warm-up question: “Do you think is it worth to vote?”. Everyone was able to answer the question and introduce themselves in 30 seconds.
Then we started the prepared speeches section.
The first speaker was Przemysław with his speech “A primer on meeting roles and officer responsibilities“, evaluated by Alicja, a very technical speech where he shared the responsabilities that each member and each officer has. The speech was Przemyslaw’s The Successful Club Series #6 – Meeting Roles and Responsibilities.
The second prepared speaker was Ewelina with her speech “If it makes you happy“, evaluated by everyone in the audience. Ewelina’s speech is the she delivered in humorous speech division contest and she’s going to represent our club in the District Contest. It was a very funny speech, and it just keeps getting better and better!
The Table Topic Session followed, with 4 brave contestants taking part in it, and Marlena leading the session. Each participant had to comment (between 1 to 2 minutes) on a few topics related to politics The winner of this Table Topic Session was Elena.
Finally, Paweł presented the timer report, Elena gave us grammar suggestions, Ewelina informed us of all the unnecessary sounds we made during the last hour and Ricardo evaluated the whole meeting.
