Ferndown Speakers were in great form at their club meeting this week. We had two great speeches. One from Ruscombe on who you would invite to dinner revealed ancestors from the secret service and the other from Gavin – a fairy tale where the great king was persuaded to pull down his trousers (you needed to be there to enjoy that punchline!).
One thing that struck me most was that they had a warm up session. Before we got into speeches and table topics, everyone got to respond to a question posed by Christopher. The question was all about new years goals, and generated a range of responses – from getting a handle on Twitter, joining Toastmasters and to “laugh, laugh and feel free!” What a fantastic way to get the party started!
A brilliant evening – club president Shirley was rightly delighted with how the evening went! The club is getting very close to chartering now, just a few more members left to join this great team.
