Meeting report on 7th July

From July Toastmaster‘s new term(one term is from July to next June) started with new club officers lead by President Sam!!

The first meeting in this term begun with TM Sam‘s encouraging ,motivational remarks and cozy atmosphere.

We welcomed seven guests.
Two members showed their will to join our club as member.

TMOD: TM Hiroe

Best speaker  TM Yukimasa 
Best evaluator  TM Momoyo
Best table topics speaker TM 

■Prepared speech session

1st speaker  "To see and to be able to see" by TM Shigetaka 

He presented  new perspective about "to see and to be able to see" based on his recent experience with some quotation and song.I felt appreciation and miracle for seeing aroud us and everything we can see.

2nd speaker  "3C Analysis" by TM Yukimasa 

He delivered the tips for valuable speech. He applied the famous marketing tool "3C analysis" to speech. He focused  on contents, audience‘s need,  what speaker can offer showing  example. 

3rd speaker "Clean up!"  by TM Itaru

He introduced tips for cleaning up room showing famous bestseller  "The Life-changing Magic of Tidying up /人生がときめく片付けの魔法" and his experience.The hints were gathering one category at one area and deciding what we want to keep.His presentation was well organized with humor.


4th speaker Humorous speech  by TM Mineko

She delivered entertaining speech despite almost  
extemporaneous presentation with cheerful and calm attitude using lots of humor.I cannot believe that speech was less prepared because her delivery was natural and fluently.

■The Summary 
All role-takers introduced ,supported and reported well and I think guests were able to follow.

In Table topics session, Topics Master TM Ryoko  facilitated enjoyable time with seasonable question and good time management.During this TT session we can enhance extemporaneous presentation skill and non-speakers or light role-takers (sometimes guests ) can have opportunity to speak.

In Evaluation session, each individual evaluator presented good feedback for speakers recognizing their strength ,effectiveness and suggestion for much better performance.

We Toastmasters have no teacher , so those feedback during Evaluation session and by comments sheets is important for our further improvement.

After regular meeting, smash suprise recognition for former officers took place.Thank you.
