To travel with dignity; Digitization and Saving water

The president, Trang opened the meeting with a brief history of Toastmasters International. Taking an inspiration from a music video on Youtube, Trang urged members and guests to persevere in the face of criticism, failures, and self-doubt. As a consequence, we will eventually succeed and find joy in whatever it is that they are pursuing.

Grant, Toastmaster of the evening chose a theme of New Year resolution. Grant’s resolution is to finish watching all the 100 best movies of all time. So far, he has 25 left to watch.

In the 1st half of the meeting, Roscoe chaired the table topic session. Roscoe followed the resolution theme with his questions ranging from past things, memories and people to plans for the future. The best table topic speaker award went to Roland with the question: what’s the best thing that you did for somebody else. He acted as a husband, a partner, a friend then a helping hand for his wife when she is sick. What a moving answer.

In the 2nd half of the meeting, Robert passionately talked about disabled people in the UK with project number 4 titled: 12 million people. He won the best speech with: “I wish people would be able to travel independently, freely and with dignity”. Following him was Lis with the speech number 3: Digitisation is hard. She compared her team’s daily tasks with those of Hercules’ 12 labors. In the end, they provided useful service for the end users. Finally, Caroline ended the section with an informative speech about how to save more water.

The best evaluator award went to Brad, who didn’t have enough time to evaluate all the speakers in the table topic session then went on to stalk people during the break to provide them with their individual feedback.

We will see you again on the 24 Jan 2018.
