Wimbledon Speakers Club 11 May 2011
The evening kicked off with the AGM where the previous committee were voted in for the coming year, Chrissy gave the financial update and discussions on how to grow the club were discussed.
Then the Speaking evening commenced….Michael as Chair stretched our on the feet thinking abilities by giving us a one word topic alphabetically!
Chrissy won “The Debra” prize with the letter H – House-proud. A great visual of House-proud Swiss ladies sweeping the front of their houses.
Alice as Topics evaluator gave contractive points for improvement and points of credit to all topic speekers.
Isabelle provided a lovely cup of tea ( majority Peppermint I might add) to all with nice biscuits for the break chat time.
Gareth Helmsley gave his Level four speech on Caffeen. He brought us though the history of drugs and coffee, the method of producing coffee and myths or scientific studies around the product. Chrissy evaluated Gareth.
Joseph Nurse gave a level 6 speech titled “Be Careful how you throw your words” using sayings such as Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me. Vanessa evaluated Joseph passing him on his speech.
George tested our memories with his Big Ears questions ( and apologised for not having sweets as treats for the right answers!).
Finally Phillip gave his General evaluation of the evening. this brought the evening to a close and a natural migration to the bar next door for further chat and refreshments.
A reminder note on End of Year dinner ticket purchase by the next meeting at the latest.
