Our Table Topics Master, Meruyert and a speaker, Yerkebulan

Prepared speeches

We had 3 prepared speakers: one of them was delivering his Icebreaker speech and the other two gave more advanced speeches from their Competent Communicator manual.

Our first speaker, Adilet Kozhakhmetov, spoke about himself in his very first speech ‘Building future’. He is passionate about architecture, which is his career and his hobby. Adilet is lucky, isn’t he? :-) We were glad to learn more about him and we are looking forward to hearing more speeches! Well done!

Our second speaker was Zhansaya Edilkhan, one of our newer members who’s been very active in our Club. Zhansaya did her second project ‘Organize your speech’ with a speech ‘Big Data Revolution’. Do you know that every time you search something on the internet you leave your digital footprint? Big data concept is so much more than that. It can even prevent rapid spread of epidemics using data on your location,  your temperature, general health information.

Our third prepared speaker was Assel Bekbolatova. She dedicated her project 3 ‘Get to the Point’ to photography. When was the last time you printed out photographs and framed them or put them in a special album? I bet that was a long time ago? 😉 Social networks have replaced old-fashioned photoalbums but Assel wishes to continue her family tradition to keep real photographs and cherish special memories. Thank you, Assel, for such a touching speech.

Table Topics

We had a very interesting table topics session ‘What can we learn from the Samurai?’ presented by our fellow members, Meruyert Kurbaniyazova and Gaukhar Axakalova. We knew it was going to be fun when these two girlies decided to team up!
