Silicon Speech Toastmasters meeting Minutes #143

It was a small group last week with only 6 of us but that didn’t stop us from having fun and or from talking about insightful topics! Also, kudos to Kenzii for being toastmaster for the first time in-person and handling multiple roles.

Speaker Recap
Karan gave a philosophical speech about learning how to listen and practice mindfulness, and the power feelings have over our thoughts.
Shar workshopped a new speech she is developing for a future Ted talk about the joy of being you and the shift from getting to giving.
Not intentional but both speeches involved doing the warrior pose which is a yoga pose that helps tap into your inner power
