Congratulations to this week's winners at Cherry Capital Toastmasters in Traverse City. Our speakers did a phenomenal job today, with Eric Davis (best speaker) delivering a speech about snowboarding. Evaluator, Colby Hemond, won best evaluator for evaluating Eric's speech; there is something to be said when someone is passionate about something, as Colby (an avid snowboarder) was able to give heart felt feedback to Eric's speech. Since it was a smaller meeting, sometimes our members that have more major roles can jump in on the table topics, where Colby was able to deliver a solid table topics speech and take the award.
I have noticed that each person who takes about 30 seconds to collect their thoughts before a table topics speech is able to calm any nerves, become more comfortable with the silence, and deliver a we though out and structured impromptu speech. Well done everyone!
