What a fun meeting! The first open house of 2017 was a huge success! We welcomed 15 new guests to our club, and our regular members showed up in high spirits to greet, share, and make everyone feel welcome.
The theme of the day was “Our Proudest Achievement”. It was so fun to hear stories about how Toastmasters has helped members achieve some of their biggest goals, and to also hear tales of adventure, self discovery, and childhood accomplishments.
We did a lightning round of Table Topics, and some guests were even brave enough to take the stage! That’s what Toastmasters is all about – pushing yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new.
And to do all of this before 9:00am?
Well that’s what makes Seymour Speakers so special. We are Vancouver’s ONLY morning club. There’s something incredibly special about getting up early, sharing laughs, stories, and reaching goals before the rest of the city wakes up.
We are incredibly excited to welcome our new members to the club. You’re on your way to making 2017 the year for personal growth! And for those who want to taste a little bit more before taking a full bite, you’re welcome back any time as a guest to another meeting.
Join us again – we meet every Thursday morning, at 7:30am – 8:50am. Room 165 at Vancouver Community College, Downtown Campus. Click here for location details.
