The Gavaliers totally floored the audience with their enthusiastic speeches and charisma. They really raised the bar for us adults with their level of speaking and their absolute confidence. I was awed by their speeches given their age and their life experiences….
In the Tall Tales contest, the kids really spun long ones…taking us into fantasy lands and we were kinda day dreaming should i say?
The Table topic which got picked was:- ‘You can’t change the past, but if you could, what would you do?
Now that was a really fascinating topic. I picked up below points
- an embarrassing incident
- bad events
- about your childhood
- you’d stop the clock – age
- bringing back resources – for the present generation
The Prepared Speeches was mind blowing. I was really floored by Aparna Radhakrishnan. She caught really got the audience’s attention. Heres what happened. She walked out on stage, stood in the center without uttering any words. She then softly said, I am sorry, I can’t give my speech….I have not practiced my speech….Then she started to walk off the stage…..some audience started clapping when bam! she’s back on stage and commenced her speech with an bang. That really left the audience stunned. Wow.
All in all, A wonderful evening at the IGCC and for those who missed it, let’s please make sure to spread the word around so that we can support the efforts of these Gavalier’s as they are our future TMs (ToastMasters) and of course future leaders in the making!!
Hats off to TM Surya Prakash, TM Xavier Muthu and TM Anil Lobo, TM Mini and all the teams for the fantastic job done.
