Follow-up from Damira Kulakhmetova

Dear Toastmasters,

Below is a recap of the meeting on 9th of July.

On Saturday, we had a regular meeting with a theme “Top holiday destinations in the world” . We started a few minutes late due to the late arrival of some role takers. Two of the speakers, Anara Serikbayeva and ice-breaker Abylakhain Ganiyev canceled their speeches. Other than that everything went pretty smoothly.

At the meeting we were delighted to hear our three prominent speakers. The first speaker Olessya Akimenko did her project # 2 Speaking in praise from Special Occasions manual with the title “Speaking in memory of Millicent Fawcett”. Many of us did not know who Ms. Fawcett was, but thanks to Olessya we got to know a little about a suffragist of XX century who literally made a history and impacted the way we live now.

The next speaker, Anuar Unaibekov, introduced his HPL (high performance leadership) project called “Food Drive”. His speech was from the Persuasive speaker manual, project #5 – The persuasive leader. In the presentation, Anuar, touched our hearts by sharing a story supported by statistics on how unfortunate some people are in terms of food supply. Therefore, to solve this issue he presented his project “Food Drive”. A food drive is a form of charity to donate foodstuffs or money to people who cannot afford food. Contact Anuar if want to become a volunteer +7 707 709 9920.

The third speaker, Aigerim Akiltayeva, delivered her, believe or not, 9th project from the Competent Communicator manual! She’s been a member of ATC for not that long but already so close to getting her CC. Keep the speed, Aigerim. In her project she needed to persuade with power and she did by breaking the stereotypes of social dance. At the end Aigerim invited all of us to practice social dance in the Social Dance Academy “Bailamos Salsa” for beginners, +7 707 4694777.

Of all the prepared speakers, the award of the best speaker went to Aigerim Akiltayeva.

A table topic session was led by Olessya Akimenko. Her questions were about top places that we wanted to visit, advantages of staycation, disadvantages of being a top place to visit, etc.

The best table topic speaker was Yerzhan Omirkhanov. Yerzhan talked about his favorite city New York and how people there try to avoid crowded touristic places, like Central Park or Times Square.

The evaluation session was led by charming Aigerim Kosheken. Her team of a timer – Daniyal, an ah-counter Aidana, and a grammarian – Yerzhan, did a good job.

I’d like to thank speech evaluators of the prepared speakers, Assiya Babayeva, Asset Abuov and Zhanna Kussainova. The award of the best evaluator went to Assiya Babayeva.

At the end of the meeting, the vice president education of ATC, Assiya Babayeva thanked everyone for coming and invited us to the Burabay trip next weekend.

Thank you all,

Damira
