12 July 2016 – Club Meeting
The president, Keith Dickerson, welcomed 7 speakers and reminded them about the topics session in May which had debated various subjects surrounding Brexit. Now of course we all knew the result and would be able to see how prophetic the topics speakers had been 😉
Rosemary O’Connor was awarded her interim certificate in recognition of having successfully delivered 5 speeches from the Speakers Guide.
There were 4 speeches this month:
- New member Sandra Harvey gave her A1 Icebreaker speech “My Business” introducing herself (and her business) to the club.
- Rosemary O’Connor gave her A6 Vocabulary and Word Pictures speech “The Ology” which was evaluated by keith Dickerson.
- Allan Karsten gave his A5 Use of Voice speech “Coach Tours – Yes or No” which was evaluated by Philip Baldock.
- Richard Thomas gave his A3 Mean What You Say speech “Raising Awareness” which was evaluated by Allan Kartsten.
We will have a break in August, so our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 13 September, when we will also hold a short AGM to comply with the club constitution.
Don’t forget that the East Area Constable Cup competition with the theme of “A Dog’s Life” will be held in Felixstowe on 28 July. Unfortunately, Colchester will not be entering a team but all are welcome to attend.
