Christmas Party at Esprit de Corps

The best night of the year is finally coming: Esprit de Corps Christmas Party on the 3rd of December from 7pm at the restaurant SC1880 (Feldgerichtstrasse 29, Frankfurt). Registration in advance required.

Due to the Christmas Party, the next regular Monday club meeting takes place on 10th of December in Saalbau Dornbusch as usual.

Table Topics Marathon

What is better than a single table topic session?? Of course… a whole evening full with table topics!!
On Monday 1st of October, Esprit de Corps is holding a meeting only for table topics. Members, guests, newbies and experts are welcome to join the evening, both in the audience and in the speakers’ group.

World of Toastmasters

The Toastmasters International Convention was held in Chicago and crowned a new World Champion of Public Speaking, Ramona J. Smith. You can see her winning speech on YouTube.

Closer to home, our next meeting, on September 3 at Saalbau Dornbusch is shaping up nicely with three prepared speeches, TableTopics and (of course) evaluations.

It’s also time to start collecting membership dues for the second semester. Please get your dues in early so Esprit de Corps can continue to support its mission of leadership and public speaking development.

Meeting on Monday

Esprit de Corps is excited to have a new member and first-time Toastmaster moderate our next meeting on 27 August. The agenda is shaping up well and it’s certain to be a great meeting. One speaker will deliver a speech on a freely chosen topic and another will speak about the Mentor/Protege relationsfoip.

Those speeches, plus Table Topics (impromptu speeches) and evaluations makes a full agenda. Please be at Saalbau by 19:15 so we can network before the meeting and still start on time.

See you then!

Next Meeting: 13 August at Saalbau Dornbusch

I hope everyone is having a great summer. It seems like the weather has finally cooled off a little and we can resume meeting at our normal place at Saalbau Dornbusch.

Saalbau can be reached by taking the U1, U2, U3, U8 lines from Frankfurt to the Dornbusch stop. From there it’s on the north-east corner of the intersection over a Reformhaus grocery.
