We had four brilliant speakers this evening.
TM Sheep gave a speech titled “Adapting my life to a new life in Japan.” He had spent several years in South East Asia for his work and recently came back to Japan. He shared cultural differences he is facing in his office in Japan. He said there is a big gap in the usage of Information Technology between Japan and the country he worked.
Our second speaker was TM Crane. Her speech title was “Before you become immobile” and she told us her painful experience. She strained her back immediately after she gave her previous speech in our meeting. She emphasized the importance of right posture and flexibility of our joint parts.
Next, TM Parrot appeared with a golden angel ring on her head. Her speech title was “Happy Substance – 2.” She made her points scientifically using chemical symbols, and demonstrated how we can become happy. She danced on the floor and sprayed two kinds of aroma to us. We all felt so relaxed and happy.
The last speaker was TM Koala. She started her speech with a Japanese children’s song, Dongri koro koro (Acorn Rolling Down ). Her speech title was “Unexpected.” Our life is full of unexpected things. They bring change to us. If we step out from our comfort zone with courage, you will find best things. Her speech inspired the audience. This was her CC #10 speech, "Inspire Your Audience." She over achieved her speech objective.
Table Topic session conducted by TM Flamingo was superb. She picked up current topics including FIFA World Cup, General Election for AKB 48, Opening of Toranomon Hills and Rainy season. We all enjoyed lively interactions.
We were very lucky to have two TM stars for our Evaluation session. One was our General Evaluator, an immediate past district governor, TM Tiger (our member). The other was a guest evaluator, a division governor, TM Caribou. We also had two experienced members and a relatively new member including TM Panther, TM Kangaroo, and TM Squirrel for our evaluators. Through the session, we reflected the four speeches and learned how to improve them further.
All participants voted for best speakers.
Best Speaker: TM Koala
Best Table Topic Speaker: TM Lark

We celebrated the achievement of TM Koala, completing CC#10, with a special decorative ball. Congratulations!!!
The meeting was informative, enjoyable, and educational. Our four guests said they will definitely come back.
