Crystal Reeves performed the TM duties for Thursday's meeting which was conducted in reverse order with the speeches/evaluations conducted first and table topics after the break.
Three members gave very entertaining speeches to kick off the morning. Jon Martindale educated the group on how to give "Powerful Presentations" with a new twist on the GLOVE approach. Steve Bragg accepted the "Toastmasters Lifetime Achievement" award and shared a riveting acceptance speech. Phillip Knight presented practical advise on how to manage, monitor and be your own CEO of your finances in his "Don't be like Phillip" speech. Steve Bragg won the best speech award of the day.
Thanks to the Evaluators Vanessa Lane, Karen Walker & Michael McConnell for giving insightful feedback. Vanessa (Lane) received the Best Evaluation Award.
After the snack break, a Table Topics session by Jan van Rensburg quizzed the group to express their darker side with some creative stories and opinions.... Alan Magee won for this best response about his role in the take down of a competitive popular dating site to profit his new company.
