SPATMC's 132nd and 133rd Chapter Meeting

Hola!

Here's a throwback to our 132nd meeting on 16th March 2016 and 133rd meeting on 6th April 2016.

For our 132nd meeting, we had the theme "Freedom of Information", where we start off the meeting sharing what is the most recent information we found interesting and our thoughts on it. We found out much more information and insights from each others' sharing!

We proceeded to our table topics session, which had different types of topics such as education, money and technology for each speaker to choose from.


Best Table Topics Speaker: Lynda Neo, ACS, ALS


Next, we had our prepared speech session where 4 eager speakers took to the stage by storm.

Best Speaker: Toastmaster Duncan Gray


For our 133rd meeting, it was themed Declaration of War. We shared what we would like to declare war with, with passion and determination but not violence!

Our table topics session was filled with quotes by Oscar Wilde, which challenged the table topics speakers interpretation skills and wit.


 We had two best table topics speakers for that meeting!

Hello! February meeting pictures are out :)
This meeting was more challenging with a Project 4 speech on our theme Love, 3 Advanced Project speeches and a General Evaluator (yes, we haven't had one in quite a while).

Other than gaining a deeper understanding of love, our meeting was filled with warmth, from learning about: rights regarding LPA, recap on how to do evaluations and being thankful.

Here are some pictures of the winners for your viewing pleasure :D

Singapore Polytechnic Alumni Toastmaster Club 129th Chapter Meeting

A friend is a gift you give yourself - Robert Louis Stevenson

Our theme for this month is Gift. Merry Christmas!
We were warmed by the comfortable gift of sharing this meeting. We had a wacky table topics session, discovery-filled speeches session, followed by sincere evaluations. The meeting ended off with a positive note, having a "Ah counter" report (where everyone had made improvements in reducing pause fillers!) and a Christmas special - mini gift exchange.

President Winson Lim gave his closing speech, announcing some future plans - one of which is to have two meeting days per month from 2016 onwards. He also presented the awards for the meeting.
