It was our final meeting of the year (and decade for that matter) which included the introduction of our new President, Len Kung. President Len also did a great job as our Toastmaster introducing two speakers, Karan Bavandi and Azita Sachmechian. Karan spoke on a topic that’s near and dear to Toastmasters, the importance of stories and Azita gave a speech on anxiety, very timely during the Holiday Season.
Props to Alex Schams who lead the evaluation team as a first time Chief Evaluator introducing speech evaluations by James Allen Hanrahan and yours truly. Last but certainly not least, outgoing President Luis Hurtado took the stage as Table Topics Master with questions which focused the new year and the year that is almost history. It was a meeting chocked full of substantial substance and not characterized by diaphanous content.
