The meeting was once again held in Kojimachi Kumin-kan, in a location with the atmosphere of prestige and authenticity. We will keep holding meetings here in the October meetings.
Just like the last meeting, there were four prepared speeches. The first speech was by Mr. C-n, who spoke about the nature of human habits and how to pick up good habits instead of undesiable ones. Since our Club is the earliest weekend Club in Japan, I believe the speech was helpful both for the members and guests to pick up the habit of getting up early.
The third and fourth speeches were in Japanese. Both were about technologies and they used Powerpoint slides effectively. TM I-fu spoke about the latest information of smartphone and how the market has been growing up in Japan recently. TM I-yoshi spoke about some likely mistakes about the kanji conversion function in Japanese typing system and how misconverted kanji can mislead the readers of online documents, achieving the Best Speaker award. All the four speakers were evaluated by experienced evaluators and TM I-da, who served as the Toastmaster of the Morning as well, received the Best Evaluators award.
The table topics (impromtpu speech session) focused on topics about the autumn season. They were guest-friendly topics and two second-time guests answered the questions as well as members. TM S-nuki received the
Best Table Topics award.
Our next meeting will be held on October 9, which will be emceed in Japanese. Guests are welcome. If you are interested in developing communication and leadership skills in English and Japanese, would like to control nervousness when speaking in public or just have fun making new friends, please do not hesitate to contact us!
