Elections, peace, birds, dogs, and a tongueless chef!

Wrap-up from last week’s meeting (10 May 2017)
With the theme of ‘elections’ and word-of-the-day ‘peace’, the meeting was Chaired very proficiently and smoothly by Aaron. We welcomed two new members Yooree and Taban, and were inspired by a chef without a tongue (thanks Ursula)!
With five prepared speeches, we learnt about bird-based personality types and the wonderful benefits of dogs and their incredible sniffing powers (very interesting thanks Utku and Dilara)! Yokebeth spoke about being ‘disconnected’ in this social media crazed world, and Michael gave a humbling speech about Deng Adut, a refugee lawyer with an incredible story. Here’s a link to the powerful short video (a Uni advertisement) that Michael mentioned. I focused on the KeepCup for my “sell a product” speech – go on, you know you want one!
As a reminder, our club election is next meeting, and we encourage every current member to consider this as an opportunity to put themselves forward for a leadership role. If you’re potentially interested but have questions or concerns, chat with any of our current committee members. We’ll be candid!
We next meet on Wednesday 24 May 2017. Visitors are always welcome – feel free to get in touch with any questions!
Bye for now
Belinda
