Northern Gourmet Toastmasters Club has experienced the ups and downs of the widespread social drama over the past year! However, despite the issues of loss of members, having to go online, and personal challenges, we’ve managed to build up again thanks to the dedicated work of members. Here’s how it’s done!
The Club changed nights and moved location. At our previous we weren’t seeing an increase in numbers. So the decision was made, based on a Moments of Truth exercise, to both move meeting days and get a new venue more centrally located for the population.
That’s been a good decision. We’re still a hybrid Club and meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month on Zoom and the 4th Tuesday of the month at Wanneroo Tavern. We’ve had more guests since moving to the Tuesday evenings and seen an increase in membership.
And there’s more! Thanks to Jeremy Del Pino, VP Education, who organised Speechcraft, (with another one coming up); and a workshop – we were invited to run a workshop for the City of Wanneroo artists, which saw a wonderfully engaged audience.
Thanks to Club Coach Kevin Sansome who’s been instrumental in boosting our numbers to get us over the line to become a Distinguished Club!
I’m very much looking forward to another interesting and fun-filled year with more Pathways being completed by all members!
