Sergeant at Arms Kevin Cusack got us warmed up with some voice exercises before Toastmaster Kelvin Newman took to the floor.
The theme this week was ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ and Kelvin peppered the morning with though-provoking quotes and thoughts about what constitutes happiness.
Grammarian Deb McAlpine presented the word of the day…OOZE, and explained a little about onomatopoeia i.e. a word that phonetically imitates or suggests the source of the sound that it describes, like Ooze!
Speaker One was John McVicar with a speech entitled “4 days in Terminal D”. He outlined his recent work-related trip to the US and his conference that took place in the depths of an airport terminal. An entertaining and fun speech.
