"Freedom" on a Tuesday night - there's nothing like it.

With the shift to Level 2, conversation around the "new normal" continued. Part of our club's "new normal" is our Toast Rack resource library - Terry debuted the Content Editor role, which is now a fixture of our meetings.

Norbert's Table Topics got us thinking about what we didn't do during lockdown; Andy convinced us of the benefits of working from home; and Dianne gave us her take on the topic of Leadership Styles.

Come and add your jazz hands to our screen on 9 June....we look forward to meeting you

Our impending move to Alert Level 2 provided some "food for speech" at last night's club meeting, as did words of compassion from our Prime Minister, and communication styles in challenging medical environments.

We changed the tune mid-meeting with our Annual Business Meeting - congratulations to Lisa, our President Elect, and our new committee. We know the club will be good hands over the year to come!

Look out for our next instalment on Tuesday 26 May - it'd be great to see you online

Level 3 - and international connections!

Jane Fisher from Newtown Toastmasters

One of the benefits of meeting online that we may not have considered is the chance to welcome guests from around the globe.

Last night we met Krish, from another Newtown Toastmasters Club (in Kolkata, India), and Marcus from Düsseldorfer Toastmasters in Germany.

Last night we met Krish, from another Newtown Toastmasters Club (in Kolkata, India), and Marcus from Düsseldorfer Toastmasters in Germany.

With our move to Level 3 yesterday, Lisa's Table Topics got us thinking about our priorities! Our prepared speeches also touched on topics that have come to the forefront during lockdown - food and time.

Hope to see you at our next meeting on 12 May - also our Annual Business Meeting when we'll elect a new committee :)
