Meeting Recap for July 12, 2018
Keeping a Dream Alive” was the theme of our Encinitas Toastmasters’ July 12th meeting. Table Topics Master Teresa Bush-Zurn used that theme very effectively as she asked participants to select a magazine photo from her collection and say how that image related to their dream. Several members offered highly creative answers. Larry Knight, our VP of Mentorship, won the Best Table Topics ribbon for his humorous reply.
Terrie Price, (pictured right) our new VP of Education, gave an advanced level speech from her Pathways program on Leadership Development. Terrie had a special challenge, which she met exceptionally well. Stricken with near laryngitis, she spoke in a whisper. To compensate for her lack of voice, Terrie used a wide variety of gestures and strategic pacing of the stage. Her tactics worked amazingly well because Terrie took top honors as Best Speaker! Terrie also served as Presiding Officer. Mark Richter won the Best Evaluator ribbon for evaluating Terrie's speech.
