Silicon Speech Toastmasters Meeting #145

This week we have a special guest joining us – Sean Block. He is a member of Funny Bones and has a very successful podcast about mental health. If you haven’t attended a meeting lately but been thinking about the club, this week would be a great time to attend and show some support!

Speaker Recap

Kenzii gave the 1st speech of the night where she shared 3 affirmations she is taking with her as she celebrates her 30th birthday this week: I am true to myself at all times, I am free of self doubt & willing to try new things, I prioritize my health over people’s needs. These are such wonderful affirmations and I know I could benefit from telling myself these daily!

Karan gave a terrific (one of his best) speeches on how we are living in the age of information overload, the power of curation and why his product Kurator is valuable. He did a great job of providing examples that were relatable and tailored to his audience, which really helped us understand.
