It was another great meeting at Wessex Speakers on 9th July, where Steve Bimpson opened the meeting for the first time as the new clubs president.
Julian Gee ran the meeting as Toastmaster and guided the meeting through the agenda and as always was an excellent MC for the evening.
Two prepared speeches were give by members. First new member John O’Shea delivered his first speech and first project from the ‘competent communicator’ manual. John gave a great speech on his journey to Toastmasters. The second speech from Steve Bimpson was a project from the advanced communicator series. Steve focused on his experience in sales as he delivered a speech entitled ‘7 steps to more sales without selling’.
After the usual refreshment break where the meeting can take advantage of the on site bar, evaluations were given by members on the speeches heard, giving some great tips for future speeches. Evaluation is key to everything we do at Toastmasters so we are grateful to Julian and Tom for providing such valuable feedback.
The table topics, which helps members practice their ‘on the spot’ speaking skills was won by visitor Trevor Davis.
Another great meeting and we look forward to the next one on 23rd July.
