This week, we had a great meeting with two guests, Alicia and Shalom. Our Toastmaster Sam Oh choose an inspiring topic, “Persistence & Patience to Become Stronger.” He shared examples which he was inspired by our fellow member, Chris. He reminded us to be tenacious and be patient every day.
Shirin delivered a speech from the Professional Speaker Manual on an “Extraordinary Man,” Warren Buffet. Did you know that Warren Buffett’s methods of investment were in stock, real estate, in time, and money for retirement? Although his net worth is $76 billion, he was a Wharton school drop-out and was rejected by Harvard Business School. Meanwhile, Heather’s contest speech “Be on Time” was even better this week due to her extra practice.
Our new member, Sapna won the award ribbon in table topic as she shared her goals of being more patience and persistence in her volunteer work.
Our General Evaluator, Ernesto suggested great tips for improving our club setting such as keeping the word of the day board in the back of the room and minimizing our side conversations.
Heather will take on other competitors from Division J in the International Speech Contest. Let’s show our support for Heather on April 1 at Capital Group in Irvine.
