It’s always a special occasion when a member gives their IceBreaker – the first speech in the Competent Communicator manual.
On Thursday evening, Claire Dipnarine gave us a glimpse into her life with My Journey.
Claire took us on a journey from Trinadad where she grew up, to the USA and on to Edinburgh where she now works and lives with her husband and children. Stephen Dix evaluated Claire’s speech.
New member, Kim Lau, delivered her CC2 speech, Cognitive Dissonance – 525 billion & 6973,738,433 and was evaluated by Graeme Buck.
In her CC3 speech, Dawn Kofie encouraged the audience to Embrace Your Guilty Pleasures and not feeling guilty. Finlay Cooke evaluated Dawn’s speech.
The TME was Kirsten McKenzie and she was assisted by Brian Duffy as Ah Counter and Ritchie Brown as Timer.
Eileen Scot wwas Wordmaster/Grammarian with the word of the day – opulent.
Johanne Burns was the Table Topics Master.
The Table Topics were evaluated by David Dick who awarded the ribbon for Best Table Topic to Aideen O’Malley.
The entire evening was summed up and evaluated by General Evaluator Paul Bailey.
As the Central Lending Library will close at 5pm every Thursday instead of 8pm, from the beginning of October, this was the club’s last meeting there.
From 4th October, the club will meet at:
Old Saint Paul Episcopal Church Hall, Jeffrey Street, EDINBURGH, EH1 1DH (entrance to church hall is at foot of Carrubber’s Close, near North Bridge).
