Another great evening at Doncaster Speakers.. The evening started with a clear introduction
from Mwada has Sergeant at Arms and Andy has Toastmaster.
Andy introduced Toastmaster International confidently and told us about the programme he referred to Toastmasters as an educational and fun session.
Steve was Timekeeper, he carried out his role with humour. Bridget was Grammarian and jumped into the role with confidence and clear expectations of what she wanted to see in her role. Shane was Ah Counter and told us the importance of his role and that instead of ah and ums we should just ‘push the pause button’.
Our first speaker of the evening was Elizabeth she gave a confident speech on glass blowing and her passion for the subject shone through on this speech. Maria was her evaluator and praised Elizabeth for completing her first pathways modules.
Our second speaker was Jean and has always she gave us a humorous speech with food for thought about world population. Jon gave an excellent evaluation of Jean’s speech.
Bridget and Lianna delivered an Educational slot their recent visit to Sheffield Speakers and gave us a few suggestions on how to make our club even better.
The second half of the evening was filled with evaluations and Table Topics. Stephanie took on the role of Table Topic Master and gave us another fun session. Arthur gave a thoughtful and clear evaluation of all speakers that spoke.
