Time management is one of the most important thing for Toastmasters, we still have lots of things to learn.
4 members evaluated each of their speech, our critical thinking is nurtured by going through this session. They gave feedback not only good thing but also things needs to be developed.
The meeting was finished successfully, looks all of us enjoyed online meeting for the first time in 6 month.
Not a few members wished face to face meeting, but we must be patient under the current situation.
Hope the state of emergency will be lifted as scheduled and meet again soon!
