Club-Hopping at NXP Philips, Calamba - A Dramatic Talk

Today, I was given a Toastmasters token (pen holder that looks like a lectern) by Area Governor Carina "Bobbie" Galang while club hopping at NXP TMC in Calamba, Laguna. These tokens were handed out in a recent convention I was unable to attend.

I also delivered the Dramatic Talk speech entitled "A Christmas Ride With My Kawasaki Girl". This is one of a few club-hopping sessions I did with NXP (Philips Semiconductors) in Calamba.

The speech is one of the more memorable speeches I delivered. It's a true story about an illness that one of my daughters had. I remember my eyes welling with tears every time I practiced the speech.

Because Christmas was approaching, I tweaked the speech a little and adjusted it to the season so it would have a much bigger and relevant impact. The employees were having their Christmas Party that evening and were glued to the story in my speech.

Shown below is the scanned copy of the meeting program.

And that's... a wrap!
