Meeting Summary for 20 April 2010
Bob K was our Toastmaster for the evening. His theme was “Earth Day”, which ties in to April 22nd – Earth Day. People shared their role in helping out the environment… we learned that some of our members are more concerned about the environment than others!

Questions asked by JiYeon to Jenny
Q. How many good friends did you meet through KH TM? A: A lot! In fact, most of my close friends are all from KHTM. I'm so grateful that KHTM has all the great members and it keeps attracting the like-minded people. Q. What aspects of your speaking ability has been improved most since joined TM? A. When I first started, my brain usually went blank that I couldn't think of anything logical to continue speaking. It was definitely worse when it comes to an impromptu speech. Enjoying this nervous moment and, in fact, anticipating to be out there and speak is the greatest improvement that KHTM has rendered me! Q. What's your goal as a speaker for this year? A. I would like to complete my 10 speeches this year and start the advanced manuals. In order to do this, I need to challenge myself more intellectually so that that the skills and contents meet the expectation of a good level speaker.

Word of the Day

Quote of the Day
There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story. -Linda Hogan

You need to be gracious, grateful and humble – but not so humble or self-deprecating that the audience thinks you are trivializing the honor. Sooner or later, you’ll be presented with an award. It may be a surprise, or you may have time to prepare. Use your answers to the following questions to weave a warm, wonderful speech that will leave everyone with a big smile (and maybe a tear): • Who invited you to join this group or encouraged you to get involved in this project or event? • How do you feel about the people and the organization’s goals? • Why are they giving you this award? People will not remember all the details of what you say, but they will remember the stories you tell. Include a memorable vignette or incident, something entertaining or touching about your connection.
