Sonia our president opened the night engaging everybody with a very thought-provoking opening note for the evening. Through 3 very short stories she spoke about what we learn at Toastmasters: we grow in to better leaders, learn to manage aspects of time and learn to not to worry.
Alfred TM of the evening held the skeleton of the evening together. Each functionary was introduced to the audience with a little story about of the most significant event in the history in their opinion. Alfred brought to the meeting his mom and a lot of participants and even guests referred to Alfred’s mom whilst talking, which added a warm touch to the evening.
The members and guests were challenged in an incredible unusual TT session. Arnab offered everybody a choice of either funny or interesting question. And indeed, how funny and interesting and sometimes even philosophical these questions were. Would you live without music or TV? Best house in the worst neighbourhood or the worst house in the best neighbourhood? Would you look in to the future or your past?
