VP-education Leo led the meeting with the theme: “Every Ending Is A New Beginning”. Whether the ending is good or bad, it will always lead to a fresh start. TMOD Leo inspired everyone to approach endings as opportunities.
The meeting began with the Prepared Speeches. The first two speakers delivered their “debut” (word of the day) speeches, the Ice Breaker. They were Jann Carlo and Afajal. Jann Carlo’s speech entitled “Dream Weaver” was about the Tnalak tribe (weavers) & how they inspired him to weave his own dreams with passion and determination. Afajal, on the other hand, presented his first speech in Presentation Mastery with an amusing story entitled “Happy Questioning”. The other 2 speakers were Anamika and Rashed. Anamika delivered her 2nd speech in Presentation Mastery “Because They Say So” which talked about some superstitious beliefs and how she debunked them to live in the reality. The last speaker TM Rashed took us on a journey to Jordan as he presented his Speech Project 8 in CC manual entitled, “Once Upon A Spring”, which talked about water scarcity.
The second session was the Table Topics session. TM Fouad served as the TT master. He called 5 brave Toastmasters namely Kit, Saif, Rashed,Philip, and Joseph who answered the questions with enthusiasm.
Lastly, the Evaluation session was conducted by TM Saif from JOENG Toastmasters Club. The 4 evaluators (Joseph, Rechell, Philip,and Kit) provided their well-thought-out evaluation for their target speakers. Here, the meeting role players (Grammarian, Timer and Ah Counter) also gave their reports. Overall, the 329th meeting was a success and ended with the traditional, wacky group photo.
