CHIC President's Reflection Meeting, Dec26, 2012, Beijing Toastmasters
(Written by Yolanda)
I know you determined to come to meeting - well, due to holiday, our next meeting will be on Jan.9!
Wish you a happy new year, and a more exciting 2013!
I was so excited and can't wait to share my feeling on yesterday:
Again, we had a meeting that laughter boiling in the room. It was so successful that I still feel my feet was off the ground; and of course, it's because everyone's devotion.
I'd like to recall three specific points (of humor / touch):
1. LOVE is the eternal topic
Today Lin used LOVE as theme and brought lots of interest from us;
Table topics delivered by Linda & Jack, and Michael & Hubert (or literally, Joyce) was soooooo impressive.
Let's recast the very splendid dialogue between Michael (as a guy in cafe/bar) and Hubert (pretended to be a beautiful lady named Joyce)
M: Can I get close to you? Because I didn't wear my glasses. (Wow, Michael, you're a born Pick-up artist!!Boys, please learn from Michael.)
--- --- ---
H: My mother give me this name Joyce because she want me to be joyce (adj.)
M: So,now are you joyce?
H: Depend on the si~tu~a~tion~
Imagine that Hubert said that in a female, coy, and flirting tone!! Girls, please learn from Hubert.)
And Cecilia in her TTE gave us 3 points of handling a conflict:
- Seek a common ground;
- Figure out the problem;
We will learn from you though you don't have marriage experience. ;-)
Want to feel the original laughter? Please watch our video!
2.Guests, we do care you.
Today, we have 5 guests, and all of them were surrounded by our enthusiastic CHICers!
Two of our guests showed their strong interest to join CHIC! They are Cynthia & Crystal. Let's follow them up with our care and love.
One tip for Table topic master (and Toastmaster) to show our care for guests: note down guests' names when they introduced themselves. In this way, when call them for table topic by their names, they will feel surprised that we Do care them.
Do you know why I'm still single for quite a long time? That's because - whenever I met nice guy(s), even after an in-depth interesting conversation, I ... I forgot their names!!
See, how important it is to remember their names! ;-)
We will promise that, we'll let our guests feel the warmth from us!
3.We are touched because you speak.
Listening Queenie's ice breaker speech is just like a full body massage - my body is numb, because I was touched by her story thoroughly.
Born beautiful, she followed her heart to pursue fashion dream, but had to face the reality that cannot find a job; It's hard to imagine how many bitterness she had experienced behind her sweet smile. As a saying goes,"God helps those who helps themselves." By reading a book, she began to change; and now she started her Toastmaster journey, and we can become a confident, successful, ... and happy lady!
What she learnt from <the Secret> is "be grateful". And my words for Queenie:
Be grateful, be great!
Dear CHICers, please help our new members to grow;
