Sandy Springs Toastmasters 8/8/19 Meeting Recap & 8/15/19 Roles


Area director, Marriane Gudina, joined us today.

Meeting Highlights
Colbi Ellison and Rob Kaercher gave speeches. 

Colbi shared how good habits are vital to achieving our goals and engaged us in one of the habits he wants to form -- to get up earlier! He asked member and today’s Toastmaster, Magdalena Raj, to help him commit to his goal. It involved paying real money to Magdalena every time he slept in! 

Check out https://www.stickk.com/which is how their accountability agreement is facilitated! Anyone can use it for any goal!

Rob gave “Icebreaker 2.0” to improve on his first icebreaker. Revising and delivering the same speech is a great strategy to improve.
