Sally, Toastmaster Promoted

Sally Toastmaster opens our meeting by Julie70
Sally speaking at St Margaret's Crypt
At our meeting of 19 October, we were in good hands: Sally was our Toastmaster of the evening.
Zandria was a great Warm-up leader, she asked us : "Why we came to the Toastmasters and how our goals changed on the way." That made up for a longer beginning, but it was worth each minute: we learned great news from each other, and understood how our motives could change and develop through experience and time. Sally told us marvellous news! With her new confidence and what she learned from Toastmasters Clubs, she made last week an Awesome Presentation at her workplace. And the next day, she was promoted!
Chris Howell with Award
Chris Best Evaluator
Yes, Toastmasters club's method works.

We also heard great news from Chris, who dreamed then founded, with a group gathered around him, our club, three years ago: he got the qualification certified Organisation and Relationship Systems Coach, for which he was working form 2007. 

Chris was also voted best Evaluator for the night.

Katy and Ola told us that beyond the development of Speaking Skills they now intend to develop through Toastmasters also their Leadership skills.

Yes, Toastmasters is a good place for developing Leadership skills, too.
Flavia with 1st Price for her Icebreaker speech

The same evening, Flavia, one of our newest members gave a stunning speech about her new dream to find her passion and become a "Toastie"

She was voted best speaker of the evening. Flavia was so descriptive in her speech that I see still the scenes she depicted to us.

With Manaj joining our club tonight.

Most guests spoke for more then 1 minute at the Table Topics, and a longer pause to speak to each other, and one of the guest, Jo won the best Table topic of the evening award.

Many other Toastmasters contributed to its success, speaking or taking roles to keep the evening interesting and useful for all of us.

This was the last meeting of Lewisham Speakers Toastmasters at the St Margaret Church's Crypt.
