Dear Friends,

On December 21st we had a special meeting dedicated to the USA. Our guest was Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States to Kazakhstan Mr. George A. Krol. Unlike other ambassadors, who usually tell us about their countries and diplomatic relations with Kazakhstan, Mr. Krol gave us valuable insights on how to present yourself, how to gave motivational speech. Mr. Ambassador also shared history of his diplomatic path, while serving as an Ambassador to Belarus, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.

 

We were surprised about Mr. Krol’s deep knowledge of “Kokpar” – Kazakh famous game. He even noticed, that cowboys from Wyoming were specifically coming to Kazakhstan to learn playing “Kokpar”. Later Ambassador’s speech was followed by Q&A session, which lasted more than 10 minutes.

At that day we had two more wonderful speakers:
Korlan Bektasova aka Deputy Mayor of Astana with her “Smog in the city” speech from “Communicating on video” manual.
Yerlan Meirbek with his speech about famous Russian scientist D.I.Mendeleyev.
Table topic session was lead by incredible Aidana Kenesbayeva, who prepared 7 questions about the US. Each participant of Table topic session was awarded by a pin, that marks 25th anniversary of establishing the diplomatic relations between Kazakhstan and the US.
 Korlan Bektasova won “Best prepared speaker” award. Yerik won “Best table topic speaker” and Raushan Satibaldiyeva was the best evaluator. Each winner was awarded with a T-shirt.
Special thanks to the secretary of our club Aigerim Akiltayeva for the organisation of the meeting and the US Embassy for providing the T-shirts and pins for participants.
