*****************

A nice “Thought of the Evening” speech given by a new member right after her induction ceremony got the meeting off rolling smoothly and comfortably.

A one hour workshop “How to Conduct Productive Meetings” presented by the club founder and seasoned member turned out to be eyeopening, inspiring and extremely useful. Lots of credit to her.

The farewell speech delivered by one of core members was thankful, sincere, emotional
and memorable to all. But the members were made assured that the speaker would return to the club after his new job away from Tokyo was accomplished in a few years.

The out-of-the-norm sessions of meeting format were extraordinarily interesting and exciting.
