第652回例会レポート“Book” #652 TMOD Meeting Report

Pocket


暖かい日差しに包まれた連休初日の例会は、2名のゲストを含め23名?といつもよりも少なめの参加者でしたが、趣向を凝らしたスピーチに会場は熱気に包まれました。

嬉しいことに新しいメンバーを迎えることができました。香港出身で米国留学経験のある若い日本人女性です。流暢でパワフルな彼女の話し方は、聞く人を惹きつけます。今後のスピーチが楽しみです。現在、横浜クラブの女性比率は約40%。女性が増えて益々クラブの活気が上がっています。

今回の例会のテーマはシンプルに“Book”。各ロールを担当したメンバーの多彩な推薦図書を紹介しました。推薦図書は文末でご紹介します。

さて、今回の例会はスピーチマラソン。事前準備スピーチが5本、スピーチコンテストのリハーサルスピーチが1本の合計6本のスピーチという豪華プログラムでした。



パワハラ上司からのストレス解消法をユーモラスに紹介するスピーチ、ちょっとセンチメンタルな祖母の思い出のスピーチ、叫び声??などなど。どれも面白いスピーチで、あっという間に時間が過ぎてしまいました。




次回も秋の週末をトーストマスターズに参加して楽しみましょう。
※例会後の飲み会もね!!(重要)

Under the warm sunshine on the first day of three consecutive holidays, about 23 people including 2 guests attended our regular meeting. Although we had fewer attendees than we usually have, members’ speeches created an exciting atmosphere that enveloped the whole venue.

We were happy to have a new member on this day. She is a young Japanese lady from Hong Kong who has studied in the U.S. Her fluent and powerful way of speaking English attracts audience. I am looking forward to her speeches in the future. Currently, the percentage of female members in Yokohama Toastmasters Club is about 40%. Her induction was a nice addition to bring more vibrancy to our club.

The theme of this meeting was simply, “Book”, as autumn was the best season for reading. I introduced the books recommended by role-takers. I will introduce them at the end of this report.

We held a speech marathon in this meeting. It was a special as well as gorgeous program. We had six speeches in total, five prepared speeches and a rehearsal speech for the coming Division Contest.


Every speech was very interesting… a humorous one introducing the method of how to relieve stress caused by a power-harassing boss, a little bit sentimental one featuring grandmother’s memories, a “Scream”, etc. Time flew away like an arrow.


Let’s join the next Toastmasters’ meeting, too. That’s the right way to enjoy autumn weekends!
P.S. After-meeting party “NOMIKAI” is the most important, in my opinion.
