Silicon Speech Toastmasters Meeting #144

Last Thursday, we had 3 special guests! My father (who originally encouraged me to join Toastmasters) and step-mom Sigute joined to watch me deliver my Level 5 speech. Then Kenzii had her wonderful cousin Jolie join! All 3 guests were great sports and even participated in the table topics round.

Do you have a guest – friend, family member, co-worker – you’d like to join? Please let me know and we’ll add them to the calendar invite.

Speaker Recap
I gave my first Level 5 speech – develop your vision – where I spoke about the power that music has on people and how my passion project Music Club can help brands with a retail location to curate playlists to play in their store to create a positive shopping experience for their customers
For the 2nd speech, we watched the 2022 Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking winner Cyril Junior Dim give an exquisite speech that was inspiring, touching and even had bits of humor. It demonstrated all the key things of a great speech and worth a watch or re-watch.
