 Sandy Springs Toastmasters held their scheduled meeting on Zoom at 7 am with twelve in attendance.  

 Jim Owen, Treasurer, called the meeting to order and led us in the pledge of allegiance, and then turned the meeting over to our president, Una Richards.  She introduced and welcomed our newest member, John Ross.  Welcome John! She also welcomed our visitors, Jarvis Leonard, and Dennis Vagura, and then turned the meeting over to our Toastmaster of the day, Jim Owen. 

Morgan Henderson gave us the word of the day: “ Ebullient”, meaning cheerful and full of energy.

Una Richards was timer/TV for the meeting.

Sam Gadebusch led us in a thought-provoking table topic question.   Our guest, Jarvis Leonard, won best Table Topic for his story about jumping out of an airplane.


We then heard two excellent speeches.  Our first speaker was Foluso Akerle, gave his icebreaker speech, “ In Search of Continuous Improvement”, where he told of his journey from his home in Nigeria, his education in England, and his move to the U.S.  

Apoorva Salismith then gave her speech on “Data Analytics in Automotive”.  Her speech explained how the auto industry is changing and how data is being used in making that change. 

Both speeches were interesting and well presented. Apoorva won for best speech.

 Jim Own and Anastasia Pass gave evaluations of the speeches.  Jim won for Best Evaluator.

After closing comments, the meeting was adjourned.
