++Prepared Speech#1 by TM MK (time: 6’52”)
Title: “An apple to Share”
TM MK gave a heart-warming speech about her husband’s positive changes through his
illness. Her husband was the quintessential 1970’s company warrior and proud of it. Her
husband dedicated his life to his company, rarely took vacations, and prided himself on his
toughness. However, when he became ill in his 50s, he had to undergo rehabilitation such
as military-like training and even tried music therapy. Her husband did not surrender,
became available for help, showed a positive attitude, and grew. She is proud of such a
husband. This story is an apple that can be shared.

The Evaluator was TM WE (time: 3’38”)
TM WE mentioned some good points as follows:
The speaker’s face lit up when she was giving her speech, entertaining the audience.
There was an improvement in vocal variety compared to the first speech. From the content
of the speech, the audience could sense that the speaker was proud of her husband. Her
husband’s example of challenging spirit was empowering to the audience. She ended by
saying that she can’t wait to give her speech at the upcoming area contest.

++Table Topics: by TM MA
Table topics Master TM MA prepared four photos. Each speaker selected one of the photos
and improvised a speech expressing their mood for the day. The Table Topics speeches
are as follows:

++準備スピーチ#1  TM NKさん   (time 7’05”)
Pathways: Engaging Humor, Lv3記述的言語の使用
タイトル 「いつもの!」
「Hey, master. いつもの!」という勢いのある入り方でスピーチを開始。食事に言った時、ついつい定番の食事をオーダーする自分と、その一方、オーダーをなかなか決められない同僚と奥さんの対比をし、自分の方が食事を楽しんでいないことに気づき、いつものオーダーをする自分を変えていこうとのこと。食べ物に関わらず、「いつもの!」を止めて、新たな発見、チャレンジを呼びかけるスピーチでした。

良かった点として、間を入れながら、ゆっくりしたスピードで自信を見せながら話をしており、聴衆に安心感を与えることが出来ていたとの指摘。改善点として、リモート参加のため、アイコンタクトが十分でなかった事、オープニングの音叉の音がNoise reduction機能で聞こえなかった事の指摘が有りました。

Pathways: Leadership Development, Lv2 Managing Time
タイトル 「3月13日にむけて」
