Sandy Springs Toastmasters 05/02/19 Meeting Recap

Bud Otto, our Sergeant At Arms, called the meeting to order with the pledge of allegiance.

The presiding officer of the day, Etsehiwot Ezra, gave opening remarks then turned the meeting back over to Bud who was also serving as Toastmaster.

Bud quickly filled the roles and called on Magdalena Raj to give the Word of the Day: Castigating- To criticize or reprimand severely.

Magdalena Raj, the Table Topics Master of the day had just watched the new Avengers movie and had based her theme for her Table Topics questions off of movies. She asked questions such as “Pirates of The Caribbean or Avatar, which movie do you like best and why?” and “Who is your Cow Boy Actor of Choice, John Wayne or Clint Eastwood?” Andy Kallenberg won Best Table Topics Answer.

The group took a five-minute break then reconvened. We had two scheduled speaker for the day, Jim Owen and Colbi Ellison. Jim went first. He gave us a very informative speech titled “How To Build Strong LinkedIn Profile”. Magdalena gave an insightful evaluation of Jim’s speech. The second speaker of the day, Colbi, also gave a noteworthy speech about “How to Create a Podcast”. Carlos Fuentes gave an astute evaluation of Colbi’s speech.

Jim won Best Speaker. Magdalena won Best Evaluator.

Bud went over next week’s schedule. The meeting was then adjourned.
