Newsletter: 2 October 2017 – We are all heroesPosted on November 11th, 2017 by Admin in Uncategorized
On Monday 2nd October Zeph stepped in and up to the Toastmaster role at late notice and steered the evening impeccably. We had Christian as our table topics master with a theme of heroes and villains. And Cathy stole the show with her impromptu speech on the values of Wonder Woman and what she can teach us about kindness.
Matt gave his Icebreaker speech and told us about how entering a triathlon had helped him to live increasingly out of his comfort zone and literally get out of his depth. He brought a wry humour to his speech, it was touching too, and won him best speech of the night.
Malachi was up next with a speech entitled Standing the Test of Time, showing us how not to fall for all of the marketing that we’re presented with.
And Joy told us about her generation: Gen X and what this mid 1960s to early 190s demographic have as a set of common characteristics, including a reputation as slackers which Joy helped us dispel.
Stephan gave us a beautiful evaluation and lesson in speech delivery: how to use the stage to best effect to make, state and anchor points. And this won him best evaluator of the night.
