From Julius Gamanyi, VP PR 104 London Debaters
A club chartering, like a child standing and walking on its own delights everyone! This is particularly the case for 104 London Debaters - the only Toastmasters debate club in the UK - appropriately located in the heart of Westminster.
On Tuesday, 24 March 2015 club President Paul Carroll announced the 104 London Debaters club was in the processing of chartering to become officially affiliated to Toastmasters International. The club voted to adopt the club constitution and the committee for the current club-year:
- President: Paul Carroll
- Vice President of Education: Daniela Ortner
- Vice President of Membership: Joann Walsh
- Vice President of Public Relations: Julius Gamanyi
- Club Secretary and Treasurer: Dorothea Stuart
On the same evening, one of the members, Chris Walker arguing for the proposition to raise tuition fees and leave them uncapped, delivered his speech as a number 9 speech in the Competent Communicator manual. The No 9 objective is to 'Persuade with Power.' What better way to show the effect of persuasion than by winning over, after an open vote, 9 people from the opposition and carrying the motion?
Join us at our next meeting on Tuesday, 14 April 2015.
Time: 6.45pm for 7pm-9pm.
Venue: Upstairs function room, Windsor Castle, 23 Francis St, London SW1P 1DN (close to Victoria station)
As of 26 March 2015 we are a chartered club with 29 charter members. And more people are joining in April.
The club meets every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at the Windsor Castle. Please keep in touch by LIKING our Facebook page.
