Sunrise Toastmasters 10-10-2014 Rewind & Fast-Forward 10-17-2014

Hello Sunrise Toastmasters members,
Below is a quick rewind of our meeting held on Friday Oct, 10, 2014. The meeting was held at Moses Cone Memorial Hospital in meeting room
NT102A and we started at 7:00 a.m.

We had a total of 9 members present at our meeting.

President Angela Ligon opened the meeting and then turned over the meeting to Toastmaster for the day Tim Murphy. Tim’s word of the day was “Win”. His theme for the meeting was using each speaking opportunity we get at Toastmasters to refine the art of public speaking similar to grabbing the brass ring when riding a carousel.

Our first speaker was Joe Stack(me) and my speech was titled “Trust,Family,Team”. I was speaking from the Speaking to Inform Manual (project #1). I spoke about why employees are so important to the company they work for and why treating employees well can be a win for everyone.

Our second speaker was Dave Burr and the title of his speech was “Is It Politics as Usual?”. He talked about how different generations have consumed media and how that has impacted the political system and vice versa. He advised us to step above the fray and really talk about how decisions are made, especially when discussing politics with our youth.

Robert Hickling lead us in table topics. He distributed pieces of paper and we were instructed to write down what we though the best job in the world was. He placed the papers in a hat and called on people to describe the job.

Thanks to Summer Murphy and Phil Stringer for serving as evaluator and to Mike Stipanov for being general evaluator. Thanks to Esther Khoury for serving as Timer/Grammarian.
