[Meeting Report] #135 January

Post date: Jan 25, 2016 2:13:10 PM

Happy new year!! I know it was bit late to say a new year greeting. Due to the webmaster's personal reason. this #135 meeting report became the first post of 2016.

(We had the new year meeting (#134) but let me skip the report...)

Regardless the cold weather, we had three guests from other toastmasters clubs and an warm cozy meeting!

The meeting was bit busy because we had special events (the induction ceremony for a new member and workshop) but thanks to TM R.K(1st timer!)'s wonderful coordination, we did almost everything on time! (yes, almost...)

The first educational session was Table Topic session. TM A.M led the session first time and the theme of table topic was "proverb". She introduced a proverb and ask the appointed speaker to tell his/her opinion to the proverb. For example, TM Y.O was asked to tell his idea to "When live in Rome, do it as Roman" and he made a speech with his experience in France and spoke about the importance to keep balance between domestic perspective as local and international perspective as foreigner. Good work!!

In the prepared speech session, two speakers made speeches (we had a workshop later on. so only two speeches were fewer than usual). The first speaker was TM R.S and his speech title was "V.O.W." (CC#2) He emphasized the importance of having a goal to stretch people's skills and make their lives better. The second speaker, TM M.S delivered her speech named "Behind smile of baby" which was her CC#7's research project. She introduced her research result regarding so called "children on waiting list for nursery school" with quantitative survey results.

In the later half, TM Y.U conducted a workshop for coming international speech contest and we watched the world champion's speech video. It was a good opportunity for new members to know the important & fun part of Toastmaster activities :)
