On Wednesday we had our first online toastmasters meeting. It was a great success!
Prior to the meeting we had 30 minutes of technical warmup, where we familiarized ourseves with the software and got instructed how to
- set the camera
- mute ourselves
- visibly clap
At 7pm our president opend the meeting and our toastmater of the evening Christian led us through the evening. It was his first time that he served as toastmaster of the evening – and that in such completely new environment. Chapau!
As you can see in the small print of the picture we had 22 people present – that is 20% than in our in person meetings. One guest even particpated from an other continent!
We had prepared speeches from
- Axel on our upcoming Online Division Conference
- Mayank on his upbringing and how he was often quite different than others
- Alexander on Why beliefs are worth talking about
They all received lots and lots of applause – and rightly so.
I cant wait to seeing all of you soon again.
