Speakers Summit 2019-2020

What appeared to be a bad omen of a heavy downpour in the morning proved to be good luck for the Speakers Summit 2019-2020. After the heavy rain, it rained registrants at the lobby of Fluor Daniel Building as we had more than a hundred Toastmasters and non-Toastmasters attending!

Shown below are the six speakers that saw action in today's Speakers Summit 2019-2020: Tzarina Saldana, Raul dela Vega, me, Ed Ramirez, Ralph Lim and Neb Perez.

Speakers Summit 2019 Promotional Materials

We only have one week and it's all systems go for the Speakers Summit 2019 - at least for me. I'm done with my slideshow presentation and even removed an entire segment which seems detached from my central theme. For now, my remaining tasks are: completing the script (bullet points) and being able to practice it with the slides.


Promotional Videos


Thus far, the following videos have been shared for this year's promotional materials for the summit. They were created with the joint efforts of members of the Division H Council. Apparently, we had more videos this year than in last year's promotional materials.

Video released last July 17, 2019.


Aug 17, 2019 Toastmasters Meeting

I had to skip today's meeting for two reasons: there was a psalmist and instrumentalist meeting with the parish priest, Fr. Ike, and I was still busy preparing for my presentation for the Speakers Summit next week (August 24).

Attending in today's meeting were (L-R). Seated: Rema Manzano, Duchess Munsayac and Cristina Yung. Standing: Loise Banez, Leah Catapia, Porsh Maliksi, Nelle Cirujales, Ed Ramirez, Pat Maliksi, Marilyn Malinao, Jude Ola, Leonzo Escola, Chloe de Guzman and Ellen de Guzman.
