What a fantastic meeting we had on Thursday. Full of energy and positivity.
Rise above was the theme chosen by our Toastmaster of the evening, Mikael.
We had 3 speakers: Örjan and Marcus who delivered their first speeches, and Chenwei. In his speech Örjan reminded us to always pay attention to the safety instruction when we are on board the plane as it will save our lives. Marcus took us back to his childhood experience and reminded us not to be afraid to reach our dreams. Chenwei shared his experience about how challenging it can be to find a topic for your speech and how to solve it. Listening to the three of them delivering the speeches, we could learn a lot about body language, vocal projection, and humour techniques in a speech or presentation.
In addition to prepared speeches, we had an impromptu speech session (table topics) led by Kathleen. This is a great practice for thinking quickly on your feet to prepare you for a job interview, presentation for clients, and handle difficult questions from your customers.
Thanks to our guests who came to the meeting. Many thanks to everyone for participating in the meeting. Remember to always rise above all of your life challenges and have the courage to reach your dreams.
We look forward to seeing you in our next meeting on 31 March.
