It is pleasure for me to write Follow-up for our past Country Day meeting at ENU dedicated to beautiful, enchanting country – India. I am glad to narrate about this wonderful event, which was provided by Aigerim Kosheken – toastmaster of the meeting.
The president of Astana toastmasters club Korlan Bektassova, who was dressed in a sari (present from our сharming Kanat Bazaraly), gently opened the meeting.
Then toastmaster of the meeting presented her role and team (she was in sari as well), which consisted from General evaluator – Yerlan Meirbek, ah-counter Gulimkhan Abdikhalik, timer – Daniyal Nugerbekov and grammarian- Saule Temirbayeva.
Prepared Speakers session was opened by his Excellency Ambassador of India to Kazakhstan H.E. Shri Harsh Kumar as our guest Speaker. He told us a lot of facts about his country and relationship with Kazakhstan. After his Excellency’s report as usual participants asked some questions.
The second speaker was Saltanat Tangbaeva with her Competent communication project #3 “Never say Never in This Country”. Third speaker was me, I performed my CC project #6 “Hardness of honesty”. I tried to explain why we shouldn’t lie to our children. Fourth speaker Serob Manukyan brilliantly detailed about interventional cardiology and he urged us not to muss up this expression with intersexual cardiology, which is not existed. I am sure, everyone got it very well. Dernier speaker was Dauren Aubakirov, who performed his ice-breaking speech.
Next part of the meeting was devoted to Table Topic Session, organized by Raushan Satibaldiyeva. We enjoyed ten questions and got candies for correct answer. Btw, she was our third girl in sari.
Succeeding section was Evaluation session. Yerlan Meirbek, Aigerim Akiltaeva, Kanat Bazaraly, Sogdiana Akhmetova gave their feedbacks to the speakers in course. Also General evaluator and his command made detailed report of their duty.
At the end of her role toastmaster provided Award Session. Lucky of the meeting were:
Best speaker – Serob Manukyan,
Best Evaluator – Yerlan Meirbek and Aigerim Akiltaeva.
Our guest speaker his Excellency enjoyed our meeting till the end and it was the right decision, because our three ladies in sari did not just wear it, they performed Indian dance in flash mob with all of us.
As details want to add: Korlan Bektassova announced that Aigerim Kosheken will be representative of ATC at Toastmasters Speech Contest 2016.
The latest news was, that Astana toastmasters club finally have found VP PR in my person. Everyone except Yernar Zhylkaidarov voted in favor of me. 😉
Afterwards I would like to thank Yerlan Meirbek and Kanat Bazaraly, for believing in me and inspiring to become VP PR. And a lot of thanks to Korlan Bektassova, who was happy to accept me as a new officer. I sincerely love ATC and promise to do my best in future.
