Whether you're an executive or a stay-at-home parent, a college student or a retiree, you will improve yourself; building skills to express yourself in a variety of situations. You'll open up a world of new possibilities: giving better work presentations; leading meetings - and participating in them - more confidently; speaking more smoothly off the cuff; even handling one-on-one interactions with family, friends and colleagues more positively.

I thank our ever-articulate Contest Toastmaster, V.J. Singal, for providing a bit of whimsical insight into the Pledge of Allegiance. I also thank our many functionaries - John BEHRMAN (Chief Judge), Aimee Turney (Ballot Counter), Stephanie Tacquard and Luis Quijano (Timers) and last, but not least, Everett Bradshaw (Sergeant-at-Arms).

One the first tasks you complete as a Toastmaster is as a table topics speaker. This contributes to your Competent Leadership manual. We are not just "Talkers". We are developing leaders, as well.

10/09/2015

The google sheet is up to date with recent activity. Remember, this is a resource for you to track your path to your Competent Communicator and Leader awards. That is an addition to signing up for weekly meeting roles. Note that there are 3 sheets at the bottom of the page to click. If you do not have access or editing capabilities, please advise Jorge or Brian to correct.

Meeting Summary of Thursday, October 1, 2015

At the beginning of the meeting it was noted the N-25 Area Speech Contests were held at Mustang on Wednesday, September 30th. Satish Kumar had an excellent performance in the N-25 Area Table Topics Contests although Fabrice Bouchereau of Katy TM won the contest. Bob LeCour had the audience rolling with laughter and won second place in the Humorous Speech Contest as Sandro Marc-Charles of Katy won first place. There were over seventy five Toastmasters attending this contest. Congratulations to Satish and Bob for representing Park 10 with distinction at the contest.

Our Toastmaster for this meeting was Phil Sutton who chose a theme of “Don’t drive through life with the windows up.” The word of the day was “bravado” but no one had the bravado to use the word of the day. Bravado is a noun meaning “a bold manner or a show of boldness intended to impress or intimidate.” Our General Evaluator was Andy Paultanis, the Grammarian/Crutch Word Counter was Mythili Bharathi and the timer was Ruben Rodriguez.

Our first speaker was Brenda Gonzalez who presented her tenth speech to earn her Competent Communicator Award, “Think About Nick,” speech project #10, Inspire Your Audience. Her speech was evaluated by VJ Singal.

Our second speaker was Jorge Herrera who presented a speech “Noble Prize” from the Special Occasions, Speaking to Praise. His speech was evaluated by Frank Nance.

Table Topics was led by Brian Selig who called upon Sean Smith, Huong Le, Robert Tran, Ruben Rodriguez and Mythili Bharathi. Sean Smith won Best Table Topics.
