Tuesday 17th May, was a huge day in the Toastmasters calendar for me and the Metro Trains Toastmasters – in formation – club. We were delighted to have Jim and Andrew (CEO Metro Trains), and Bruce Hill , D73 New Clubs Coordinator join us for a fabulous, high energy meeting.
Metro Trains Toastmasters Club was the initiative of Stefan Heaton, a young engineer, who I’d met at a Speechcraft Course in Cranbourne Toastmaster Club, and who introduced Speechcraft to his workplace. I coordinated the course,with my TM colleague and good mate, Harry Lew, and out of it, Metro Trains Toastmasters, sponsored by Frankston Toastmasters and Sunbury/Macedon Ranges Toastmasters Clubs was born. Ricky Tuck and I have been working hard as sponsors to coach the prospective members, and am pleased to say that the Club Charter papers are being completed and will be submitted to TI this week. Charter is near.
It’s not everyday that an International President visit a club, and we are very grateful to Jim Kokochi, for making this day such a special day for us all.
Jim inspired us with his keynote, and said “to be good at public speaking we need three things: Skills, practice and feedback” and I said “I like that and will use it if I may”
A picture paints a thousand words, and below you’ll see, the fine people who celebrated the event with us.
An awesome meeting, and one to long remember.
