Live from the VanCore bat cave! Today we saw the future! Jonathan arranged our first HYBRID meeting, featuring space-age Owl technology. The camera detects individual speakers and hones in on them so tightly you can see their lips move. Or at least, it WOULD have done that had there been any actual speakers live in the room, besides Jonathan. This was a test after all. The rest of the small but spirited group scrubbed in from the comfort of their homes. And we were treated to another installment of Deb’s ongoing master’s class in nutrition — the kind of thing her clients pay good money for but we, as club members, get for free. Yet another perk of Toastmasters! In the lively Table Topics session that followed, Bobby and Jonathan and Deb had questions like the following dropped on them with zero prep: “Which died-too-young artist would you grant another 50 years to?” “What animal ability would be terrifying if humans suddenly had it?” Try speaking for two minutes off-the-cuff about THAT. But they did. Brilliantly. The party continues at Vancore, every Wednesday at 3:30. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how to reserve a spot to join us in-person at our downtown Vancouver location. There are limited spaces in the room. Or join us virtually each Wednesday at 3:30 PM for online learning and fun! Sign up here for weekly notifications.
