Nasrudin and Oom Schalk : Stories all the way down
The tale is wiser than the teller…looking at how stories work from the inside
Dorian, one of our newest members, will be doing a session about story telling. He will be sharing two videos with us and discussing how they work. Story telling is an essential art for developing our speaking, and this is a session well worth attending.
Crack the Common Sense Code
Imagine a world with just a little more common sense. Robin Pullen proposes a simple formula based on social science that can help ordinary people crack the common sense code. Waging a war against stupid, Robin invites people everywhere to change the world around them by supporting the common sense revolution.
Robin is PSASA’s Deputy National President and this will be a great opportunity for you to meet the 2015/2016 National President.
The Cape Chapter AGM will be held at this meeting as we will not be having a meeting in April because of the Convention.
During this time, I will be giving my report back on the last year and a half, and then Richard Mulvey, the current Deputy Chapter President, will be taking over and elections will be held for people joining the Chapter Board.
Should you wish to be active on the Board, please let Richard know as soon as possible.
Welcomes and Farewells
We had previously advertised that we would be having a Cape Chapter social in March to welcome new members. That date proved to be very tricky for many members, so we have moved it to the 4 April, with a twist.
We will be welcoming and acknowledging our new members at this time, and it will be an opportunity to mingle and get to know each other and our families. But most importantly, at this meeting, we will be saying goodbye to Bill Russell. Bill has been a fantastically supportive member of the Cape Chapter for a long time, and he is also an active Toastmaster. In light of his leaving to return to the States, we are goign to dedicate this event to Bill, to say Farewell. And we will be inviting Toastmasters as well. So now this becomes a joint event, and a good way for us to get to know even more people who enjoy speaking. Typically, there will be a few speeches on that evening.

Bring and share and braai. (Your own drinks, meats, a salad or snack and some chairs please. Oh, and please bring a portable braai if you have one.)
Looking forward to having you join us for the evening.
