Toastmasters Speaking Elephants Meeting- August 23th

Theme of the meeting was: Discovering New Worlds.

The meeting began promptly at 7:00 PM, and from the kick-off all could tell that, with Mirek Grybalow at the helm, the meeting could be nothing else but a success.

Mirek acted as a genial host, introduced the speakers in a way as to make it easier for them to do their best and for the audience to listen with attention and anticipation. If there were a picture in the dictionary under toastmaster, Mirek’s face would be there:)

First, Milena Paluchowska introduced Michał Paluchowski as the speaker for the evening. The audience was very anxious to find out what stood behind the intriguing title of Michał’s speech ‘The end of sex’. To our relief, we learned soon that ………

What to find out more? Here is the recording of Michał’s presentation.


And this is what his evaluator made of it.


After the break, we enjoyed a Table Topics session run by Anna Witkowska.The unquestionable winner was Tomasz Kolinko. His amusing two-minute mini speech impressed all the audience. Once again Tomek passed a test of wit with flying colours.

Tomek’s recipe for success in two simple points:

1. If you inject humour and make the audience laugh, you are a winner.

2. If you take on the unconventional view, and stand out from the rest, you are a winner.

We also welcomed two new members to our growing club:

Piotr Goławski


and Adam Jeziorski.



They are sure to make a great asset to our Club. We look forward to listening to their speeches soon.

To all that were here last meeting, thanks so much for your participation! The meeting concluded at 8:45PM and a crazy good  time, one of the best of the year, was had by all!
