17 June Meeting Report - Reporter Valerie

  • Apologies - Donna

  • Visitors/guest speakers - Belinda Peddie, Chook Henare and Phillip Arama.

  • Raffle won by John Ellis

  • Colin effectively managed to fine everyone.

  • Speakers were from Kerikeri’s Top Start Toastmasters’ Club.

  • Belinda Peddie is the Club President who told us about Toastmasters, and how club members proceed through speeches on which they are evaluated, to attain competency, and then can continue through programmes.   

  • Speeches start out shorter and with simple objectives, such as conveying information – first speech is telling others about yourself.  And move on to be longer and have more complex aims – such as persuading listeners to a viewpoint and being inspirational.  

  • After the 10 initial speeches, toastmasters can continue to learn and improve through the programme.  

  • Phillip was the next speaker, he was on speech 9, and his goal was persuading us to a viewpoint.  He talked about diabetes and food – he himself was diagnosed with diabetes as a child, and he used simple images to explain the condition to us, how it affected the body, and how food choices can make a difference.  

  • The last speaker was Chook, an experienced toastmaster who did not commence the programme for a little while after joining.  Her speech was inspirational – both in the content, the delivery and the message.  Though delivered quietly, it was an expressive and powerful presentation.
