How many people does it take to unroll a ribbon?
- I don't know, what is a ribbon?
That's what toastmasters is all about! Collecting ribbons!
Toastmaster is all about sitting in a small room with a bunch of guys, that like nothing more hearing themself talk..
Well last Thursday we turned that statement around! We had the great Kristel who was so kind to take us around the beautiful village of Ghent. She picked out 6 amazing places that were just perfect for giving speeches!
We also had an icebreaker (1st speech) and a competent communicator (10th speech).
What an awesome night that was! Want to see this toastmaster thing in action?
The 14th of September, 20h at zebrastraat ghent ghent!
Somewhere between the Far West and Belgium's biggest harbor (Antwerp) lies a small, but picturesque, city called Ghent. If you want to know more about this city you're at the right place!
Here in Toastmasters Ghent we have a professional tour guide called Kristel who is going to give us a guided tour through the city. During this tour we can enjoy the beautiful scenery but also four amazing speeches.
If you ask me, it is going to be an awesome, once of a lifetime experience.
So where is this tour going to take place you ask?
At De Krook, Myriam Makebaplein 4, near a statue "de Passanten".
Be there at 20h on Thursday 31st of August!
We are going to end in Zebrastraat.
See you there! (again De Krook, Myriam Makebaplein 4)
What happens when you mix Thorben, Voldemort and the minions?
This is what we expect (see picture), but come to Zebrastraat 32, 9000 Ghent Belgium and see for yourself!
This will probably the most evil meeting of the year, so don't miss it! Also, we have 2 great minions who will give speeches about how much they love conquering the world and how much they adore bananas. Or maybe they'll talk about something else...
Come and experience the full evilness of Lord Thorben and his minions!
It has been 2000 years since the last gladiator games! But on the 10th of August 2017, they were back!
Bigger than ever before and organised by the great general Zjefanus!
We also had 3 winners of the gladiator games, Stevinus, Benjaminus and Yannissos. They had to go through tough battles, but they were the chosen ones by the peasants that were the audience!
Sounds like a great evening to me!
And it was!
Make sure you don't miss the next awesome evening on the 24th of August! Be there!!
Esteemed Citizens of the empire....and slaves!
Tomorrow is a great day - we shall honour emperor Ignatius Aurelius Maximus Primus with the greatest games our imperium has ever seen.
Come to Zebra, tomorrow at 19.50 and join the games that will echo through the centuries.
Last meeting was planned to be the worst meeting of the year... Turned out we failed at it, the meeting was awesome!!
Congratulations to Simon for his icebreaker! And also special attention to Zjef for most annoying TM-member!
