Disconnect… Refresh… Connect :)

Post completion of my Competent Communicator manual for Toastmasters International, I have been working closely with our club VP Education, towards the completion of my Competent Leadership track. Just like the CC track, the CL track also entails 10 projects but they are more focused towards taking up various roles in club meetings – Grammarian, Ah counter, Timer, General Evaluator (GE), Table Topics Master (TTM),  Speech Evaluator, and the most daunting; Toastmaster of the Day (TMOD). I vividly recollect that right after I joined the club, I started off by taking up the TMOD role and interestingly, I thoroughly enjoyed the role. TMOD is like the linking chain or the host/anchor for the meeting who fills in all the gaps. TMOD introduces a theme for the meeting with a subject for the members and guests.

Last week, I had the privilege to function as the TMOD for the 85th Club meeting and the theme I selected was “Disconnect… Refresh… Connect..”. Two days before the meeting I was still in search of an interesting theme and during lunch break, 3 of my friends gave me an idea and I came up with the concept and layout of the theme. I’d love to share the meeting slides I prepared and presented. I don’t have my speech script handy but the theme was presented in a light engaging way. These slides were spread over the 2 hours meeting duration and were presented in batches, before each meeting segment, and towards the meeting conclusion.

There was 1 slide which particularly got the audience attention with lots of laughter to add. Can you spot which one?
