Toastmasters Speaking Elephants Meeting- October 25th

“When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. Sooooo, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven!” – Brian O’Rourke.

Today is a special day for many Poles, a national holiday, a day when people all over Poland visit the graves of loved ones and to place candles and flowers on graves. We wish you a warm and peaceful holiday with your families, and look forward to seeing you again on November 8, meeting hosted by our experienced Toastmaster, Mirek Grybalow.

To whet your appetite for the next meeting and let you know what you can expect, just let us remind you of our unforgettable meeting on October 25, 2011, hosted by Milena Paluchowska.

Theme of the meeting was Alcoholism, and indeed the meeting was as merry as one could only dream of:). We had 3 speeches served:

Adam Jeziorski had his 3rd CC project – Get to the Point, when he told us about our hectic lifestyle and what we lose when constantly in a rush.

Michał Paluchowski presented his 4th CC project – How to Say It, and for sure he knew how to say it. All the audience generously applauded his great performance. Keep it up Michał!

Mirek Grylaow advanced with his 5th project from the advanced manual – the Professional Speaker, titled “How to Build a Winning Team?”. He told us why winning teams win, because they have the best players and a coach who knows how to make the sum greater than the parts.

Anatolii Mykolenko was our Table topic master, and made our day with a series of funny and intrigi questions, that left many people legless when searching for the right answer.

The meeting was also an opportunity to practice our voting skills:) The gathered members of the Club chose two Executive Committee officers: Sergeant at arms and Secretary.

Sergeant at arms – Anatolii Mykolenko

Secretary – Maciek Sowinski

Good luck to them in their new roles and congratulations for the great speeches they presented!
