Every person has motivations to do whatever they like. In this evening, what they like was coming to People Square Toastmasters Club! There came a lot of members and guests with different motivations. Some were motivated by their passion to listen to different stories, like me; Some came here because they were motivated by their peer, like Ben’s six friends; Some people were motivated by their responsibility as officers to improve the wellbeing of Toastmasters Club in Shanghai region, like our senior guest, Samuel, to name just a few.
In “Special Sharing” session, as motivated by his desire to improve the wellbeing of People Square Toastmasters Club, Samuel shared with us his “Standard Operation Process” in global toastmasters club in which he redefined different responsibilities of different role takers and pointed out several aspects that we can do better. The enlightening session has shifted our focus to the front line(speakers) to the backend organizers(officers) and provided us with many tips to better organize our meetings! With his help, we believe we will take a step forward on the way of self-improvement and perfection!
Two speakers, with such a sharp contrast in terms of their mode of thinking, style as well as contents delivered C1 and C3 speeches respectively. Oscar, the king of the evening, shared with his male peers quite a few tips on how to chase a girl, how to maintain a positive and stable harmounious relations between each other in a “high” way. His “high” spirit induced laughters everywhere in the meeting room and earned him the best speaker in the evening! While Joy, a very tender lady, lectured on “Pyramid Principle” which I happened to read several month ago. She used “Elevator Test” introducing the “MECE” principle(mutually exclusive, completely exhaustive) which is proposed by McKinsey and widely used in consulting field. We all listened to her tentatively with full contentration and curiosity and after her speech, I have been able to use a more logical way to express myself.
“Table Topic” session is always the most popular session as it always attacts a lot of guests to participate. This time was not an exception, too! Six members and guests actively set themselves on the stage and performed a wonderful show!
The meeting ended with contentment and pleasure as we not only learned how to deal with relations and how to sell proposal with “MECE” principle, we also attracted two more new members(Oscar Kwun and Megan Peng) to our club by “Law of Attraction”!
Let us welcome Oscar Kwun and Megan Peng again and wish them all the best in the club!
