By Ken Essien, Area C5 Director
Area 5 in Division C had the pleasure of two fresh clubs during the first half of the year.
First, JPMorgan 1st Class club, another corporate baby was relaunched on 18thJanuary 2019 at their impressive office. The meeting was well attended by members and guests, some attending a Toastmasters meeting for the first time. Elizabeth Nostedt, Region 10 Advisor was on hand to lead the relaunch as Toastmaster of the day. A prepared speech, evaluation (and open feedback), and generous table topics gave the falour of a well planned meeting to savour.
Big kudos to the leadership team at the club for making this happen. We wish them a an enjoyable Toastmasters journey, with plenty fun, learning and growth. Thank you to all the District Leaders and guest Toastmasters who supported the event
Next, Gartmore London Toastmasterschartered in record time on 5thApril 2019. The District noted this was a record charter for a club in recent times. From the cosy office location in the Holborn area in London, the club brings some swag to the Toastmasters ‘corporate’ family.
Five star salute to the hard working leadership team for their attention to details, hard work and dedication to launch a special club.
Again, special thanks to the District leaders and guest Toastmasters for the tireless support accorded JP Morgan and Gartmore clubs.
The club welcomes all guest Toastmasters to their meetings as Club Ambassadors fulfilling speech, Evaluation and Generator Evaluator roles…..
