"Wine & Cheese" themed meeting

The Transformers Toastmasters Club held a themed evening on Monday 13 April 2015 entitled “Wine & Cheese”. It was such a great evening and therefore a BIG THANK YOU to each member, guest and visitor that attended the meeting.
One of our newest members, Madeleine, delivered her Ice Breaker speech and it was fantastic to hear more about her background in Switzerland and how she has found a love for South Africa and particularly Johannesburg. Well done Madeleine!! You go sister!
Our very esteemed family members, Jason and Glen, each did their CC8 and the visual aids were smashing! Well done guys on incorporating visual aids effectively into your respective presentations and I am sure that you will take this learning curve forward into the future.
And then, ladies and gentlemen, two visiting toastmasters from other clubs, Dainfern and CIS Toastmasters respectively each delivered the final speech to complete their competent communicator journey. What a treat!! Well done ladies on sharing your triumph with the Transformers Toastmasters Club J!! Big HIGH FIVE to you both.
The legends John-Peter and Keith brought their experience to the night with JP demonstrated how to defuse (i.e. to make a situation less tense/ dangerous) criticism effortlessly. while Keith, on a lighter note, shared with us his wealth of knowledge and experience in wine tasting which he paired superbly with some very delicious cheeses (cheddar, brie, goat’s milk cheese, blue cheese and camembert). The tastes and aromas really brought something different to the evening which made it easy for everyone to participate in the process. Thank you Keith for being the WINE MASTER for the evening.
The raffle was well supported and congratulations to Mbuluma that won the grand raffle prize last night and to Chamu and Ferdie who each won a super cute Lindt chocolate bunny J.
It might have been a long evening, but it was great to see all the members, guests and visitors participating right up to the last minute. Therefore, again, a BIG THANK YOU to each – YOU ARE AWESOME!!
