We had a fantastic KeyForce Toastmasters Club meeting with many guests! Very interesting Ice Breaker speech as well as the fresh and crisp speeches by other two young members and the special guest speaker. Amazingly, five guests visited the meeting; originated in Poland, USA, China and Japan.
They all contributed to the exciting and inspiring meeting with their witty answers or an entertaining speech.

Closing Remarks and Adjournment TM Mariko Misaka

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

The first meeting of the Toastmasters new year began with a burst of laughter from the April Fool fun talks of the club President and Thought of the Evening and Word of the Evening speakers.
Then the well organized Prepared Speeches successfully delivered by both a relatively new and a veteran members set a stage for the unique and inspiring contest speech delivered by a seasoned member from another Toastmasters club.

We all recognized the visiting speaker’s commitment and courage demonstrated in delivering a speech at another club’s meeting in an effort to mutually brush up Public Speaking and Leadership skills.
To our great pleasure, four guests attended the meeting and enthusiastically participated in the meeting agenda. The General Evaluator’s comments were as always amusing and comforting.
The meeting was satisfactorily handled by a pinch-hitting veteran Toastmaster of the Evening.
