The theme was ‘Mothers’ and man was this a fun and entertaining toastmasters meeting. We had a packed agenda with 5 prepared speeches from Jono, Ian, Sarah, Bob, Gorin and Vanessa. The speeches included a wide variety of ideas and stories. Jono did his first speech at the club about the journey he took to starting his own business, Cloud Creators. Ian gave us a funny speech about money and women, which was a little controversial! Sarah told us about her experience as an Au-pair in France where the host family’s daughter had decided to loose her virginity through an elaborate plan that backfired. Bob told us about his first love, not a woman but cars! Gorin told us about a turning point in his life where as a child he got knocked in the head by a brick for causing trouble at school. Vanessa inspired us by explaining how powerful perseverance is in following your dreams.
The impromptu session saw some guests taking center stage to talk about mother figures in their lives; well done guys for volunteering!
