Below is a quick rewind of our meeting held on Friday Aug 8, 2014. The meeting was held at Moses Cone Memorial Hospital, meeting room 0043 and started at 7:00 a.m.
President and toastmaster Angela Ligon gave a ‘happy’ welcome to all present and everyone got a chance to introduce themselves and state why they were happy, getting some funny and interesting answers. The agenda was updated to reflect that Tim volunteered to give the second speech of the day and Steve volunteered to evaluate the second speech.
Summer used the poem “Desiderata” by Max Ehermann written in 1920’s, to set up table topics. The questions were based the meaning of the poem “things that are necessary” and Max’s opinion of what is necessary to be happy in day to day lives”.
Dramaine shared with us a great resource from Ted Talks “How to speak so that people want to listen” from Julian Treasure. If you are interested in improving your vocal variety its a great talk to listen to.
Thanks to Steve and Ying for serving as evaluators and Dave for being General evaluator.Thanks to Esther for serving as Timer/Grammarian.
