Win/Win negotiation, Tolerance, Gardening to Yoga and a very imaginative speech on wild animals. Another fab meeting last night.
Congratulations to Nigel for his excellent Ice Breaker speech; to James who won Best Speaker, Endrina for Best Table Topic and Jack for Best Evaluator.
Thanks to Dorothy and Gordon for coming all the way from Eastbourne and Gordon for stepping up and taking the Grammarian role. Roles like Grammarian are, in some ways, better real life experience than speeches as they involve interaction with the meeting. They help build confidence while on stage.
We need roles filled for the club to function so check Easyspeak every weekend prior to a meeting and sign up for a role.
If you’re new to evaluating don’t be daunted by the excellence of the speeches. We all need to start somewhere and everyone’s opinions are useful feedback.
We were a little disorganised with the equipment last night because we’re running without a Sergeant At Arms. Volunteers for this role would be welcome. (This could be a shared role)
