July  13, 2015 Meeting Recap

Nathan Ohren was our Presiding Officer and Marie Azzaria was our Toastmaster for the evening.
The theme was “Leadership”.

Opening words were shared by Annie Dai to put us in the mood for a great meeting on Leadership.

Ron Guilbault – “Be Careful What You Ask For”
Linda Wisner – “Weddings, Toastmasters, and Push-Ups!” (A wonderful Ice-Breaker!)
Michael Kwan – “Leadership vs. Management” (Another wonderful Ice-Breaker!)
Grace was the Discussion Leader, inviting us to share the ways in which we embrace and resist change.

Larry Bishop was the General Evaluator & Sandra Eacret was our timer.
Jen Wu, Christine Campos (guest) and Bob Francome were evaluators.
Nick Woolf gave us a hilarious “Rooney”, complaining about the proliferation of Customer Surveys.

In addition to the roles above, we had 5 guests in attendance. We hope that MaryJo Alburger, Annie Dai, Masaaki Ogawa, Moe Mahjoub, and Christine Campos will join us again at the next meeting, or very soon thereafter.
