Country day Follow-up December 2, 2017 by Raushan Satibaldiyeva

Dear Toastmasters,

On December 2nd we had a special meeting dedicated to one of the most wonderful european countries – Hungary. Our honored guest – Dr. Andras Baranyi, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary pf Hungary to Kazakhstan gave a speech about his country, his diplomatic mission in Kazakhstan, bilateral relationships between Kazakhstan and Hungary, and some facts that prove the historical ties of the countries. Did you know that Peoples of Kazakhstan and Hungary have common historical roots. Nowadays, about 100 thousands of descendants of kypshak (a Kazakh tribe) origin who migrated from the territory of modern Kazakhstan about 750 years ago reside in Hungary. Mr. Ambassador also mentioned the existence of the largest low-cost airline from Astana to Budapest named Wizzair. His speech was followed by Q&A session where the audience asked their questions to our honored guest.

We had 3 more speakers who delivered their speeches in Prepared speeches session. Almat Juvashev presented us his Project #3 from CC manual titled “Error is a human: prescription of medicine in outpatient settings”.

The third speaker was Aigerim Akiltayeva, who introduced her future HPL project, the title of her speech –  “Sharing my vision”.

Nurmukhambet Tashkenbayev told us about his trip to New York and shared some interesting stories under the title “New York – rubber city”. His project was #4 from CC manual.

After the prepared speeches session the audience voted for the best speaker and most votes went to Almat Juvashev who won Best Prepared speaker award.


Table topic session was led by Alisher Tazhinov who prepared 9 questions on Hungary, however most questions were for knowledge of some details and facts about country. We were very glad to know that most audience were aware of the country, its history, culture and traditions. Raushan Satibaldiyeva asnwered the last questions about the developing the relationships between Kazakhstan and Hungary, shared some tips and became the Best Table topic speaker.

Speech evaluators team consisted of three advanced and experienced evaluators: Korlan Bektassova, Saule Temirbayeva and Kanat Bazaraly. The audience chose Korlan Bektassova as the Best evaluator of the meeting.
