We had a great meeting on Wednesday, ably chaired by Michael, who set the topics theme as ‘Firsts’. While Wimbledon Speakers Club does not dwell in the realms of politics or religion particularly, it was a strong topical reference considering the news around the world that day. This had followed the briefer introduction session which was centred around, ‘something I did not see coming’… so there were plenty of interesting anecdotes to listen to, and barely a mention of the word Trump!
Fittingly, new member Neil, also delivered his first speech later on, detailing some personal history and his path to our speakers club. It was a natural, charming delivery, and immensely easy to listen to. He then received feedback from first time evaluator, Peter, who clarified his thoughts sincerely and tactfully. It is a delicate balance, evaluation, and essential to ensure the speaker is as encouraged and supported as they are inspired to develop and make small changes.
So well done to us, and thank you to all contributors!
Join us on Wednesday 14th December, for the annual club speech contest. All speakers will be speaking to the same subject – Changing Times – and it is bound to be an entertaining, inspiring and different evening. As always!
See you soon………….
