Winners 15th July
A great night was had with quite a number of members and 4 guests attending. It was a night full of committee members, with our Toastmaster for the evening being Geoff our Vice-President of Education and Table Topics Master Pam who is our Joint Vice-President for Membership.
We had a whopping 10 Table Topic speakers, including all 4 of the guests, who chose to take part, including Paul, a first timer to Toastmasters. Well done!
The questions were varied and encompassed topics such as job hunting, favourite books and whether the bluntness of children is a good or bad thing. Choosing a winner proved hard, and ultimately we ended up awarding a joint 1st place to third time guest, Mano, and a long standing member, Natalie.
The committee member theme continued through into the speeches as Karen Lee, our Vice-President of Public Relations and Natalie, the club's Secretary, both battled it out for the award of Best Speaker. Although they have both been in the club for a number of years and have worked through past awards, they were both beginning on Toastmasters' new learning structure - Pathways, and so they were both starting with their first Icebreaker speeches.
