Everyone enjoyed socializing for several minutes over the coffee provided by Alan Magee.
After a short break, Duane Humphrey gave a 5-7 minute impromptu speech using Game of Thrones HBO series as a foundation of the universal themes of betrayal, fear and failure to impart messages of how we can all learn from and apply these truths and lessons in our daily experiences.  Alan Magee gave Duane's speech a detailed evaluation, pointing out how Duane skillfully painting the characters of the TV series in a way that even those who never watched it could understand and then discussed the practical applications of their experiences in our own lives.
