We conducted the 275th regular meeting online.
TM Y, the president of the club this year, announced the declaration of the meeting.
TM S took the role of TMOM, Toast masters of the morning. He started the regular meeting with delivered daily topics as an icebreaker. all attendees relaxed and warm up by his briefing. Each role taker introduced their roles.
TM J took the role of Timer.
It was first time for her to role as a timer. She looked nervous at first. But She completely fulfilled the role! We thanked her dedication.
We welcomed two prepared speeches by TM M and TM A.
The title of TM M’s speech was the leadership during taking over. He plans to retire some part of his job at end of this month. He is taking over his role to his successor now. He delivered his idea of which type of leadership does he have and shared the war story of how to communicate with his successor who has confidence in his performance at his work.
TM M also told us how to establish improved relations with him. He delivered his speech logically. Therefore we could understood his message easily. The title of TM A’s speech was a history of Money – birth the monster named “NATION”. He explained the origin of “Money” based on his encyclopedic knowledge of literature. He also asked us the below questions. 1, If you can be an invisible person, will you take part in a crime? 2, A new technology called “cryptocurrency” has become popular recently. There are many benefits for us to use it. But there also is a risk of traceability by others. Do you welcome cryptocurrency or not? All audience discussed these questions after his speech and share the opinion by each group.
TM I roled as a table topic master in English.
He plans to go to Europe for business trip in near future in order to solve the current problems which he tackles. I envy him! There are three questions.
1, Which kind of country do you want to visit? TM N.S answered this. She wants to visit France because his husband stays there. She would like to meet his colleagues.
2, What kind of daily routine do you have. TM N answered this. He practices English pronunciation every morning. Because he often attended online meetings. He recorded and listened his speech after the meetings. He thought he performed poorly. Therefore he tries to improve his speaking skill. (I respect his English skill and was very surprised his endeavor!)
3, What would you do on a rainy day? TM M responded this. She watched a drama series “Good Doctor” by Amazon Prime video recently. When she watched the drama, she could enjoy and feel the time pass quickly.
Evaluation session TM N.S evaluated TM M’s speech.
She picked up some good points and one suggestion point. She delivered her evaluation with a big smile. She put today’s word “emancipate” on her evaluation. I admire her quick-wittedness! TM N evaluated TM A’s speech. He confirmed how long did TM A deliver his speech before TM A’s speech because it was also important for evaluators to evaluate time management.
We could learn the importance of time management through his attitude. We appreciated his dedication!
