Sandy Springs Toastmasters November 7, 2019 Meeting Recap & Roles for November 14


NO MEETING ON THANKSGIVING DAY, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28TH!

Sergeant at Arms, Bud Otto, called the meeting to order with the Pledge of Allegiance. Club President, Una Richards talked about being grateful and posed the theme of the meeting as being grateful in what we have and what we are learning.

Vice-President of Education and Toastmaster, Andy Kallenberg reflected on his own learning – learning to be a better speaker – be prepared, know your topic, and visualize success! He gleaned this information from the Mayo Clinic in reading about Glossophobia – the fear of public speaking. 

In addition to Table Topics, led by member, Jimmy Sidol, we had two informative speeches. 

Jimmy asked thought-provoking questions about the “modern world” of communications. Questions posed included “Text or phone?”; Droid over iPhone?”; “What has been the best improvement so far?; “What has created more problems?” Bud won for his response.

Colbi Ellison asked for a group evaluation of his speech which was a part of a longer presentation that he is delivering in December. His topic, interestingly enough, revolved around communications, in particular, email, phone and chat. The group gave feedback on the content as he was looking for additional activities to include in the speech.  

Crystal Reeves also delivered a speech on communications, specifically how to get your message across, In this speech, Crystal focused on what the listener hears. She delivered information from the ASTD (Association for Talent Development) about learner styles: common sense learners, dynamic learners, analytical learners and imaginative learners.
