Club Awesome Online Meeting March 20, 2020

Tamra Smart fields a Table Topic

After experimenting with a hybrid online / offline meeting on March 13, Club Awesome will encourage the majority of members to attend online on March 20. We are doing this to educate our members on how to conduct a meeting in an online environment and to prepare for future disruptions related to the coronavirus outbreak. We will likely offer online attendance as an option on a regular basis, going forward, out of consideration for members who may have particular concerns about their health or that of a loved one.

On March 20, a skeleton crew of Club Awesome leaders will assemble as usual at the Panthers Ice Den in Coral Springs, but all members who are able to do so are encouraged to join online. Nonmembers who wish to visit with us online are welcome.

The meeting will start at 7, but try to sign in at about 6:45 am to make sure you can get everything working. You can even click that link a few days ahead of the meeting so that you can download the required software and experiment with the controls. You do not need a password to attend a Zoom meeting as a guest.

Although there is a Zoom app for your phone, joining from a laptop computer is recommended.

Register to attend our next meeting.

“Laura and the Healthcare Dilemma” – video of a speech by Dr. Andrew Bern

Since Andrew Bern joined Toastmasters at Club Awesome in 2010, he has been a Club President, VP of Education, Area Director, Division Director and this year Club Growth Director for South Florida and The Bahamas. This speech draws on his decades of experience as an emergency room physician. He is a past member of the Board of Directors of the American College of Emergency Physicians.

Dr. Bern (usually just “Andy” in our club) used this speech for a Storytelling project in the Toastmasters educational program based on the idea that one of the best ways to make a point or deliver a message is to make your speech revolve around a specific, human story. This speech is a great example of that principle in action.

How We Created Our Member Testimonial Video

From time to time, as part of a Table Topics session, we ask members to talk briefly about their experience with Club Awesome. We then pull out the best bits (and edit out all the ums and ahs) to create a couple of minutes of total video introducing prospective members to our club.
