The first meeting of Visionaries Toastmasters Club was held on July 3.
With the extensive PR effort by all the officers of the Club, we were able to welcome 27 participants including five guests who were not yet members of Toastmasters and TM R_kyle, all-Japan speech champion for this year.
After the opening remarks by TM Ami, President, TM Tamaki, our Vice President Education, emceed the whole meeting as the Toastmaster of the Day.
Now that the atmosphere was warmed up, the prepared speech session began.
The first speaker was TM M_yuko, who gave her first speech in English. Titled "Harmony that touched my heart", she spoke her favorites and the experience of getting herself to recovery from stress in Canada through joining gospel choir.
The third speaker was TM G_ce, who spoke about her bitter experience abroad when she lent money to her neighbor in the same apartment.
A special speech was conducted by TM R_kyle after that. TM R_kyle amazed the audience by delivering his first practice speech for the World Convention, where he speaks to compete in the World Champion of Public Speaking. A feedback sheet was distributed to every participant so that they could give constructive feedback to TM R_kyle.
All the speeches were evaluated by experienced evaluators. TM B_ce, who evaluated TM R_kyle's speech, achieved the Best Evaluator Award.
Our second meeting will be held this Saturday, July 17. The meeting venue is Takatsu Shimin-kan near the Mizonokuchi Station, instead of Nakahara Shimin-kan.
