Our October 17 meeting theme was “Cause for Passion.” Sapna was our Toastmaster, Speaker #1 and vote counter. She took home the Best Speaker award for her CC#4 speech “Follow Your Passion for a Cause,” encouraging us to have passion for a cause and to support it anyway you can – “everyone can make a difference.” Nady gave his CC#2 speech on “The Digital Health Revolution” describing how advances in technology (e.g., Smartphone Aps, Fit Bits, and smart drug delivery devices) have revolutionized the way pharmaceutical companies can monitor clinical trials. Our guest Jorge won the Best Table Topics ribbon for the second time in a row explaining how he made “one small difference” by giving a personal thank you note. Deb’s evaluation of Nady’s speech won Best Evaluation and Alex gave his very first Toastmaster speech evaluation. Great Job everyone and thank you to our one returning and four new guests for participating in the meeting.
