Diana led our meeting with a theme of Mentoring. She discussed types, benefits, qualities, expectations of mentoring both within Toastmasters and outside of Toastmasters. Charlie gave a great Ice Breaker speech, the first speech in his Pathway, and was awarded best speaker. Harry gave a persuasive speech about the benefits of Toastmasters which focused on benefits he has seen personally. Erin led a lively debate arguing whether e-mentoring (virtual mentorship) is as effective as in-person mentorshop. Arnav led our Table Topics session with well-prepared and relevant questions about mentorship. We had 14 attendees with 3 guests.
Louise will be our Toastmaster next week and her theme is TBD. Hope to see you there!
