Silicon Speech Toastmasters meeting #148

Last Thursday, we had another guest join us – District 1 / Area 1 Director Eunice – who was a lovely addition to our online meeting. If you have a friend, family, co-worker or know someone in another Toastmaster group, please extend an invitation to have them join an upcoming meeting!

Speaker Recap
We watched the 2023 Toastmasters World Champion of Public Speaking Jocelyn Tyson deliver her speech “Have You Been There” about conquering her inner critic to compete in a triathlon which you can watch/re-watch here.
Shar is developing her Ted Talk and shared with us the joy we feel when making others feel included and being a connector, by sharing a personal story about when she had just moved to Austin and didn’t know anyone at this event.
