Meeting on 27/04/2016

Wednesday 19:30? :) Another Almaty Toastmasters Club meeting! Here are some highlights of the day!

Our evaluator, Greg, Toastmaster of the Day, Begzod, and Table Topics speaker, Ilyas

Prepared Speeches

We had only 1 (but awesome!) prepared speaker, Yadykar Abdirakhmanova. She had already completed her Competent Communication manual, and this speech was her first Advanced Project. She chose ‘Entertainment’ and gave a presentation on ‘Life Lessons’. Watch Yadykar’s speech here!

Table Topics

Daulet Mukanov was our table Topics Master and he chose to ask people about elections. Now wait a minute, you say, we’ve already spoken about Donald Trump, Parliamentary elections in Kazakhstan were held on March, 20th. Another elections? :) Yes, we have our own elections in Almaty Toastmasters Leadership team. In fact, we had them that same day later, so Daulet decided to keep the audience excited.

Table Topics Master, Daulet, and our winners (Abylai, Greg, Yadykar)

Best Table Topics speaker was Abylai who doesn’t come very often, but when he does, almost always gives a brilliant impromptu speech! Thanks to Yadykar, she was the only one and The Best Prepared speaker, and her evaluator Greg Heaver who gave a thorough evaluation of her speech.

Conclusions

The rest of the meeting was dedicated to the elections. I will say no more, as the results will be announced soon! Stay tuned! In the meantime, I want to thank the founding Leadership Team for all the work they’ve done to make this club what it is.
