January goes off with a bang

The New Year started off with a bang.

January’s first meeting brought new visitors from near and far!

We certainly hope the few omissions, made on their first night at the club, doesn’t put them off visiting again. Especially, as they did really well at the topic session.picture: Laura gets trophy for her practice speech

The omissions were put down to recovering from the festivities.

Laura won the  evaluator’s cup for her practice speech. The topic was the launch of a new range of hair care products, for her work.

 

Kevin, who has been a member for less than a year, received his A5 certificate, which had to come from head office.  Well done!

This means he can now join the Speaker’s bureau if he wishes.

Open Mic

We had open mic session which was meant to help members practice using a microphone. However more than half chose not to use it.

Nonetheless it was a very interesting an enjoyable evening.

We had poems, stories, where we learned about Wiltshire, a relaxation ‘magic trick’ which involved changing the weight of stones, a very good joke from a Cardiff visitor and an amazing song.

Most of the evening was videoed so that members could judge and evaluate themselves once the recordings were put onto our youtube channel.  This is yet another learning opportunity.

As if proof were needed  of what a great speaker Kevin is, he also passed his A7 speech at the end of January and won evaluator’s cup for his accapella performance in the open mic session.
