Simply Speaking ToastMasters
Meeting Date: 09/25/14


            Two fabulous speeches completed this week by Darryle Brown and newcomer Thomas Ottenheimer

Darryle took us through a wonderful PowerPoint presentation of pictures from his Adventures in Kuala Lumpur. Darryle worked from his Competent Communicator manual “Get Comfortable with Visual Aids”

Thomas, a newer member of the Simply Speaking family, did his Ice Breaker speech entitled “Offensive Rebound”. Thomas had the meeting in stitches with his brand of humor in regards to his tough relationships and how he seems to rebound from all of them.

 Thomas was voted best speaker congratulation and great job Thomas.
