Venue: Aoyama-Tokyo Women’s Plaza

“The last meeting of the current club term was out of norm in terms of
agenda.
In other words, we skipped the usual Table Topic Speech Session. Instead,
we had an Effective Evaluation Workshop conducted by a veteran member
having a Toastmaster experience of over ten years.
The Workshop as expected turned out to be extremely useful and inspiring.
It was particularly so in view of the fact that evaluating other speaker’s
speech is an ultimate impromptu speech.

The four prepared Speeches were truly diversified thanks to the three
excellent speeches at
different levels from Competent Communication Manual and the superb fourth
from Advanced Manual.

It was phenomenal that six guests visited us including three for the second
time and enjoyed the glimpse of our dynamic meeting agenda.”
