Another great meeting happened on May 18. Andrey Reshetnikov, our old member, was the Toastmaster of the day. Read to find out more!


After-meeting get-together with our members and guests

Prepared speeches

Our first speaker was Damir Naurozbayev with his very first speech ‘Air Age’ in Almaty Toastmasters Club. Damir managed to ‘break the ice’ with the audience by telling us who he is, how and why he came to the public speaking club. Interestingly, he saw a Facebook post of another guest of our Club and decided to give it a try. The power of social networks :-) Thank you, Damir, well done, and we hope to see more of your speeches.

Our second speaker, Greg Heaver, current Treasurer of the Club, gave his 9th speech from Competent Communicator manual. 9 down, 1 more to go, Greg! What can we do to make ageing not so frightening? How to prepare for the inevitable? Check out Greg’s speech!


Table Topics

Our Table Topics master was Begzod Hakimov who always comes up with intriguing topic for our audience. Begzod was inspired by Professor Skulachev’s biography so many questions were about ageing, living longer, living better. All the things we want, basically! Would you want to have an elixir to live forever? The question actually said ‘to live longer’ but we took it one step further 😉 Tell us in the comments!


Best speaker was Greg Heaver, Best Evaluator was Greg’s evaluator Yadykar Abdirakhmanova, Best Table Topics speaker was Gaukhar Zhunussova. Congratulations!

Of course, the meeting would never be possible without of a great team of Ah-Counter, Grammarian and Timer! Thank you, Alibek Tnaliyev, Makpal Toleubayeva and Zhadra Sekrekova!

Don’t forget: Turan University, every Wednesday at 19:30, room 207! Come and join Almaty Toastmasters Club if you haven’t done it already.
