第230回サザンビーチトーストマスターズ例会(2/1/2020)

2020.02.01 230回 例会

第230例会は、時間通りY澤会長の挨拶からスタート。
前半は日本語の部。今朝の司会はY戸さん。
今日の言葉はY澤さんで「金」。使うだけで何だかハッピーな気持ちになれる言葉を選んで頂きました。

日本語スピーチは2本。

1本目はW奏さんの「心の引き出し」
ふとした会話をきっかけに、心の引き出しにあった祖母の言葉が自分の行動につながっていることに気づいたというスピーチ。
「明日の風を待ちなさい」という言葉をはじめ、印象的な言葉が詰まった、心の温まるスピーチでした。

2本目はM野さんの「人生100年時代の幸福な生存戦略」
開拓者精神をもって、①柔軟性②コミュニティに接続することが秘訣と啓蒙しつつも、
②はトーストマスターズがあてはまることを指摘し、聞き手に安心感を与えるスピーチでした。

続いてワークショップではI瀬さんが先日のCOT(役員研修)およびTLI(Toastmasters Leadership Institute)の参加報告を行いました。
冒頭で笑いを取って、ぐっと聞きやすい雰囲気を作りつつ、
リーダーシップも、スピーチも、「守破離」を意識して鍛られるスキルだと締めくくっていたのが印象的でした。

論評の部は、N井さん、M川さんが各日本語スピーチを具体的に分かりやすく論評し、
日本語の部を通しての総合論評をY田さんが行いました。

司会のY戸さんの金メダル級のタイムマネジメントのおかげで、時間通り日本語の部を締めくくることができました。
休憩をはさみ、英語の部に続きます。

230 th Meeting report
We started the English session on later half. TM NH announced the Word of the day as
“Infection”. Recently, we often saw the news of Coronavirus Infection spread all over the
world. We have to be careful about prevent infection with this decease.
TM TM gave a prepared speech. The title was “Before I got a marriage, I hadn’t cook rice
well”. She told us how she overcomes the difficult tasks, cooking. She prepared very well!
Her story was sprinkled with humor. So we could easily understand and enjoyed her story.
TM YM gave a speech. She will attend the area contest held in 29 th February. Her speech
title was “LIFE SHIFT”. She also joins the area contest for Japanese session! I was
impressed by her dedication because she did two speeches and also soundly fulfills her
VPE roll as well!
TM SA gave three topics to TM members during “Table topics” session. The topics are
1, how percentage is suitable for Consumption TAX?
2, what do you want to do after retirement?
3, have you experienced that you suddenly canceled something or were canceled from
someone?
All questioners respond correctly and humorously.
Next, we hold an Evaluation session. TM TA evaluated for TM TM speech. He pointed two
good points and an improvement point. He always explained these points with concrete
descriptions! TM MN evaluated for TM YM speech. She also precisely pointed
improvement points for success at area contest.
I think that Evaluation session is important for us because all speakers receive benefit in
order to improve our presentation skills.
Finally, we had an Award ceremony which is most enjoyable time. The best table topic was
TM SN. The best evaluator was TM MN. The best speaker was TM WA!
We finished 230 th regular meeting as scheduled.
